Reviews

For the military historian, the aircraft enthusiast and the modeller this is a really interesting read and the result of about 20 years of research by the authors. Another book from Helion Books which I can heartily recommend. * Military Model Scene *
1969 sticks in my memory chiefly for the Apollo Moon landings, and I don't think I was paying attention to world events that year... time to set the record straight with this excellent history by Overall and Hagedorn. * Books Monthly *
The book does concentrate on the air war, however the ground operations are covered along with the build up, and reasons for the conflict. Recommended if you like researching & modelling the smaller conflicts of the world. * Britmodeller.com *
The book will be a boon for achieving the necessary detail...and in researching (and reproducing in scale form) the liveries of the less obvious types. * Airfix Model World *
In my opinion it will be a nice addition to an aviation fan's library. Moreover, it might be handy for those who are searching unusual markings for their build. Some of those photos will be useful for dioramas in scale. * DetailScaleView *
