Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Accent on Tampa Bay
"The definitive study of the equipment and organization of the Allies bomber units through the war."

WWII History, November 2008
"Anyone seeking the definitive reference work on Allied bombers and fighters will be hard pressed to find any better resource than [Allied Bombers 1939-45 and Allied Fighters 1939-45]--the latest addition to Zenith's 'Essential Aircraft Identification Guide' series--from historian and aviation expert Chris Chant. Lavishly illustrated with black & white photos and color artwork, both books contain a wealth of information for the World War II aviation buff and serious historian. Organized by theater of operation, each book describes the various units that were fighting on all fronts and notes the models of aircraft in service with each unit along with their individual and squadron markings...With charts, graphs, and organizational tables accompanying the artwork and photos, these books are essential reference guides for modelers and any enthusiast with an interest in the aircraft of the period."

In Flight USA, June 2008
"Zenith Press continues to offer aviation buffs serious and detailed works chronicling the historical and technological aspects of aviation. Two new offerings include Allied Fighters 1939-45 and Allied Bombers 1939-1945. The guides include info about unit formations, aircraft insignia and squadron markings for not only Soviet, US and British aircraft, but for lesser known craft from Belgian, Duth, and Brazilian Air Forces. As usual with Zenith, the text and illustrations are exhaustive and unbelieveably comprehensive."

    Now my nephew knows too much!

    I bought this for my 10-year old nephew who's really into WWII history. Now he asks me things while I'm driving like were B52s used in Sicily?
