"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."
