A quality book, fine artwork, good details on many very interesting designs and their potential rivals & contemporaries. Definite recommendation for those interested in the subject area.
There is a but...
Any readers used to the more nuanced and mature informed commentary of the Secret Projects series and other books by the likes of Chris Gibson and Tony Butler may be be put off by the writers at best simplistic and at times ill informed comments and commentary. The position appears to be these aircraft were all perfect and who shouldn't have been cancelled and lets not worry about unimportant aspects like not being able to afford them or associated requirements being overtaken by critical events and developments.
The worst examples of this is the particularly flawed logic used to imply that (1) cancelling the B-70 directly lead to the Cuban missile crisis and (2) cancelling the B-1A directly lead to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan when anyone even slightly familiar with the Soviet perspective of these events knows that absolutely no such link existed.
Don't want to be too negative, generally a fine book as long as you can stomach it when the writer briefly goes off on a mad tangent.

4.0 out of 5 stars What if? 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase
A lot of information in here about projects that didn't happen. Of particular interest is the section on the X-20 DynaSoar. There are some interesting insights into Robert Macnamara and his obsession with ICBMs, which lead to the demise amongst other things of the B-70 and the F-108.

Also a very good section on the Canadair CF-105. For British readers, there is a section on the TSR-2 although there is little new here that hasn't been already published elsewhere.

In keeping with the 'what -if' theme of the book, there is some excellent speculative original artwork from the author (e.g. of a CF-105, TSR-2 and B70 flying in formation) and some period photography.

Superb book to be honest, if your interested in both the politics and engineering behind some of the most unfortunate aircraft projects that really SHOULD have continued ... Buy this book !

5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad overall 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Plenty of those nearly happened moments.
It's a good overall ,cover all so to speak.
If you have a keen interest in aviation;you'll no doubt have read about most if not all the projects within.
I've noted what other reviews have pointed out about some of the narrative,which is fair comment.
The good news if you want to know more about the golden age of jets.
It's still an excellent read.The computer rendered images are good and there some good original photos also.Good value for an hardcover book.
