Reviews

"The book is well researched and includes information from official reports as well as interviews with the pilots. This makes its read very well balanced between facts and first person narratives describing the details--and sometimes confusion--of aerial combat. There are many unknown images in the book, most of them coming from the collection of the official archivist of the 325th Fighter Group making this book of high historical value. The B&W pictures of the airplanes and the color profiles are inspiring, to say the least, for the modeler. Highly recommended to historians and modelers alike." --IPMS/USA"In line with other books in this series, there are a ton of well done period photographs as well as the usual large center section of full color profiles of the planes that were flown by the unit during the war. There are many names which enthusiasts will recognize and their planes were some of the more colorful of the war, especially in the last months. The war stories told by the pilots is a staple of these books and this one is no exception. An excellent read and a great reference book. Pick it up when you see it." --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com"Details the rise of the 325th and its service in the North African and Sicilian campaigns. By the end of the Sicilian campaign, the 325th had scored 128 aerial victories and escorted 1,100 bombers without losing a single one to enemy action." --Model Retailer
