I always thought these books were cheap coffee table books. However, I am very pleased with the book for the price. It does not contain any technical data on the machines, all the photos are black and white, and I did notice a few typos. However, the book is just what I wanted in that it contains a lot of photos of the machines and their riders as well as provinding some interesting background data. I will study the photos in great detail. The book is 187 pages and contains over 250 photos. If you are interested in more than just the battle, you'll like this book. I have bought other books of this series and have been very impressed.
