    An insomniacs delight!

    This will lull you to sleep like nothing else. Totally lost interest two-thirds of the way through. Kept hoping it would get better - it didn't.

    Interesting, but not well written

    I found this book to be nicely filled with facts and detailed, however it reads like a sub standard after action report for the most part. Still it gave me a good overall understanding of what these guys went through, which I think is worthwhile.

    highly recopmmend

    This is the sotry of the African air campaign wich has been overlooked for a long time. Goes into detail about who shot wdown who and from what air group they belinged to. Go for those researching the air war.

    Overall, I felt the author did a good job of showing the hardships these pilots endured in this crucial campaign.
