Voila! For you or another aviation buff in your life...

I picked up a copy of this at an airshow this summer for 2... best bargain of my life I kid you not!

I confess to be something of a fighter jock at heart but the imminent release of the strafer B-25s back in the late summer got me curious about ops in the south-west pacific and when I happened across this it seemed like fate.

And wow, what a read.

Never have I been so hooked, enthralled, and educated about a theatre I knew little or previously was very concerned with.

From the amazing exploits of the 4 engined heavies, the exhilarating but lethal low level attacks of the mediums and the deadly duels of the Little Friends this book has something for you, whatever flavour of aerial action you prefer, and might even convert some of you die-hard dogfighters to a bit of skip-bombing action!

At times touching, even tragic and sobering, but always gripping, if you've got a last minute Xmas gift to buy for an aviaphile, or you have some cash or book tokens on Christmas morning that need converting to a decent tome then look no further. Brilliant!

You know him Waldo? Well pass on my thanks and congratulations for a top notch book and warmest Seasons Greetings to him also... and to you naturally.

Oooh, to pick his brains about the Air Apaches....!
