This book shows a good chunk of British and American aircraft used during the Second World War. It is a great book to read cover to cover, or slap down on the coffee table so that you can paw through a few pictures and read a profile or two at you leisure. Each of the aircraft from T6's to Spitfires to B17's and C47's are individually profiled. The profiles are jammed full of information, like how the aircraft was designed, how it was used or notable pilots or battles that it was involved in. Almost every aircraft that is profiled has at least one period picture along with it. At the end of every profile there is a chart of the aircrafts specifications (maximum take-off weight, cruise speed, ect.). Overall there are 33 aircraft featured in 'Flying Legends' along with the back section that is filled with modern pictures of the surviving war birds (even a p38!). I honestly was not sure if I would enjoy this book, but I found myself hooked on it, and learned quite a bit along the way.
