Alfred Price is a good aviation writer and I would recommend this book to anyone still tyro to the subject, but alas, too many of the illustrations are average in execution and most of the photographs have been used before. Some photos I've seen many, many times, although given it is a general interest book, I suppose that is to be expected. I'm glad I bought it for my son, he is wild about aviation and still has a lot to learn and it suited him just fine. i think it was money well spent.

Overall it was a good concise work. The only complaint I have was the authors being English gave a good summation of the English and German aircraft, but the U.S. aircraft seemed to be an after thought. Overall a good book that is very readable.
