MWSA - Hodge Wood
"I give this book my highest recommendation, and suggest it for military history buffs or anyone inspired by airplane development or the US Navy."
IPMS - Mike Hinderliter
"I highly recommend this book for your research library if you are a modeler or an aviation enthusiast."
U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings - Peter Mersky
"Strike from the Sea is an entertaining analysis of an often ill-defined, occasionally misunderstood community that has seen a great deal of successful service in many conflicts."

"For anyone interested in post-WW2 Naval aviation, this is a book well worth having."

    Another Thomason Home run

    This is a stable mate of Thomason's other fine work, Naval Air Superiority, also from Specialty Press. Is is very well researched and chock full of excellent supporting photos and performance charts. This book really provides an in depth view of the developement of Naval Strike aircraft, it is not a 'romantic' review, but really hits on what worked, what really didn't and where its all headed. If you like military aviation, then this volume needs to be on your shelf.
