Way too broad overview of a large subject; plus by the end you can hear the Reagan-Era military history buffs panting over the latest in hot weapons systems, which is just kind of nasty. Still, it was a moderately good bathroom read.
A very nicely written history of jet combat for the lay person. It doesn't have much for the benefit of the scale modeler and has few illustrations, and is a bit dated. Perhaps some of its information, like the Colonel Toon account, is superseded by the latest clarifications and corrections. But this is still a great book to read.
