5.0 out of 5 stars One of the largest Air battles of WW2, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kursk: The Air Battle (Hardcover)
For a very good review that gives, what I believe is, a good 360 degree analysis of this title please look to Mr Howard Mitchell's review. For my part I shall endeavour convey my thoughts on this book.

I really liked this book as it is full of detail and that explores the weakness and strengths of the opposing air forces, with a critical eye. The examination of the paradigm shift in their respective fortunes as the battle progress is both illuminating and lesson that should be learned from History. We are given great anecdotal information about various units, their commanders and individuals who fought won and lost in an air war that until recent times was not written about extensively. An air war that was probably the largest campaign of the Second World War. The book deals volume of equipment used, the strategic need for re-supply, repair and the need for good intelligence so as impact one's opponent in the most effective way possible. You are supplied with great photograph evidence, always a plus point for me. At times, you may tire with the length and breadth of the statistical information that is contained within the pages, as you wish to move on with the narrative. This book that cannot be read once, you will need to visit this volume at least a second time to really appreciate it.

This edition is well worthy of a full five star rating.
