This is a large volume; packed with information both technical, human and political and is complete with plenty of colour photographs - a few unseen until now - and some decent maps. Personal and official accounts of air combat, bombing and missile attacks and tactics are plentiful, as are fine details of the operations of all three UK Forces.
Despite the vast amount of information as described, there are bonuses in the form of intelligence and diplomatic events of the time - which reveal quite a few surprises particularly about our allies and enemies during the war!
This book is beautifully researched and written - a long and drawn-out review simply could not do it justice. A fitting tribute to the men, aircraft and ships involved and, in my opinion, is a 'must-read'. Rating: 5/5
