"All in all, this book will be a welcome addition to your
bookshelf, bringing together as it does, photographs of the aces of
all nations together into one book."-- "Scale Aviation Modeller
"The author did pick from a very nice selection of period images to illustrate both the pilots and planes... The historical sections were well written and the captions informative, which is really all you can ask. It is a great book and one that those who want to know more about these men will find a delight."-- "Modeling Madness"
"The usual outstanding selection of rare photographs is supported by concise and clear text in the form of captions and much longer introductory pieces. A very affordable volume with many remarkable images of war."-- "FIRE Reviews"
