From the Publisher"...the author takes a look at the design and development of both of the weapons systems, then looks at the strategic situation in which these weapons found themselves during the war. There is a section on the technical specifications of the systems, followed by a piece on the training of the combatants. Much of the book then goes on to detail the combat action between the two forces, following up with an analysis of the event and what came afterwards. All of this is superbly illustrated with maps, cutaways, and period photographs, making this edition a must-have for those interested in the combat capabilities of these two machines."
—Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
"...provides a fine survey of combat aircraft used in Vietnam ... unpublished documentation and photos from North Vietnamese sources provide additional, rare references suitable for any military collection strong in Vietnam military history."
—The Midwest Book Review (August 2011)
"...makes an unusual but fascinating "Duel" subject that should appeal to more than just Vietnam veterans."
—Jon Guttman, Vietnam (August 2011)
"Davies, using first-hand interviews given by US pilots and North Vietnamese missile technicians, separates the interweaving histories of each system into clear and concise segments – while illustrating the dramatic encounters between American aircrews and Hanoi defenders."
