From the Publisher"Finally, two respected American air historians have taken all of the available sources in hand to attempt to present an honest assessment of the air war and how it was actually fought. As a result, and as Doug Dildy is a retired fighter pilot who "grew up" during the Cold War and was trained based on results of Korea, they have presented a great description of what it was actually like to fly and fight in an F-86 Sabre or MiG-15 in Korea ... The book is clearly written in easy-to-understand terms and does a great job of using examples and facts to show how air combat was conducted ... Overall, if you have any interest in Korean War air combat this book is a great place to start or simply add to your knowledge."

"Technical and tactical information about these two classic fighters combine with analysis of their performance in action." —Military Heritage magazine
"Benefiting from newly acquired information from the Russian and Chinese camps, jet age experts Douglas Dildy and Warren Thompson provide an unprecedented comparison of the performance, strengths and weaknesses of the two fighters and the pilots who flew them ... Students of the early jet age should find F-86 Sabre vs MiG-15 an essential addition to Osprey's "Duel" series."
