"..provides a basic history of the units involved, followed by page after page of superb period photos, many of them taking up a full page. In ` color four views, three of which are there for the decals that come with the book. These decals provide only the unique markings for each of three scales. All of the common markings and large markings (such as rudder stripes) will need to be gleaned from the kit or painted on. These include a P-47D from the 65th FS/57th FG, a P-47N from the 333 FS/318 FG and a P-47D from the 310 FS/58th FG as shown on the book cover. The decals are superbly printed and add quite a value to the book.Those who are Thunderbolt fans will want to add this to their collection.--Modeling Madness
"...this book chooses to examine each theater as more of a general overview, briefly touching on each of the major P-47 Fighter Groups. This general overview then provides a backdrop for more detailed information presented in the photo captions.The photos are what really make this book shine, and there are some great shots presented here. The vast majority of photos are in black and white, a common feature for World War Two books, but there are a handful of color photos at the back of the book. The text is presented in both English and Polish, with the photo captions providing some great anecdotal information about the aircraft, squadrons, people, and weapons. One interesting tidbit on the latter are several photos showing early versions of napalm bombs, consisting of standard fuel tanks with regular 500lb bomb fins attached. The included decal sheet provides markings in 1/32, 1/48, and 1/72 scales, which will appeal to a very broad modeling audience. There are three options presented, A P-47D from the 65th FS, 57th FG out of Corsica in 1944, A P-47N from the 333rd FS, 318th FG out of Ie Shima in 1945, and a P-47D from the 310th FS, 58th FG. All three offer some colorful options, from the red, white, and blue striped tail of the 58th FG to the large blue numbers of the 57th FG. You get nose art, names, colorful squadron insignia, and even a scoreboard. Printed by Cartograf, the decals are of very high quality.For those looking for something a bit different from the usual 8th AF P-47, this is a great book to pick up"--Internet Modeler
