Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The author discusses the development of both aircraft as well as their technical specifications and deployments during the Six Day War. Pilot training and tactics are also part of the story and one will find a few 'I was there' stories to add some spice to the book. As part of the appendices, there is a section on stats and analysis as well as a listing of MiG and Mirage engagements during the war. In all, a superlative inclusion to this series and one that I know you will find useful and informative." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness

"A pick for any serious military library." - The Midwest Book Review, October 2010

"...an effective evaluation of two classically matched adversaries. For anyone interested in supersonic jet warfare, it makes an interesting companion volume to earlier 'Duels,' such as Peter Davies' 2008 F-4 Phantom vs MiG-21: USAF & VPAF in the Vietnam War." -Jon Guttman, Aviation History (November 2011)
