This is a book that I might have rated higher if I had more interest in the air war. It is well written and while it doesn't delve to deeply into the conduct of the war, or the decisions that caused certain things to be done, it does deliver a number of great first person accounts from both sides of the fence. Another thing that impressed me about this book was the range of coverage. Instead of just focusing on Bombers, or Fighters, the book also include information about the training that was giving the gunners on the Bombers, the situation with the ground crews, and many other aspects of the air war.
The only real complaints I have about the book is due to the wide range of topics covered nothing was covered in any real in depth detail and the title wasn't really shown as a valid point. Merely coming up in glimpses instead of being a focus of the book.
All in all this would be a great book to recommend for those getting started on the air war topic of WWII. Even if it is a mostly American view of it
