4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but relevant, 29 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Full Circle: The Story of Air Fighting (Cassell Military Paperbacks) (Paperback)
For a pilot of Johnny Johnson's caliber and rank, this book has a few errors, and in some cases does not match with his tales from his other book, Wing Leader. Perhaps the typesetters had their own interpretation, but to have the FW 190 called a Fokker Wolf is a basic error, and I can't believe that Johnny Johnson couldn't identify an aircraft bty it's correct name, especially having spelled it correctly in his earlier book.
The book is interesting nevertheless, as it is one man's view of the evolution of air warfare, and all due respect must be given considering the achievements of the author.
Yes, some of it is blindingly obvious, and perhaps now seen with the benefit of hindsight, but it is a good reference guide to the newcomer to this genre.
