As a Historian and having a son who is a budding historian, this book has been invaluable in his love and research of World War II and the tactics of Air Warfare. Of coarse as with any book this is just one source of many, and nothing is ever a complete history of the time. This book does a very good job at providing a good solid background of the subject.
