Well blended Sabre/Fury History

This book presents an outstanding history of the Sabre/Fury family of airplanes, with techical, historical and operational information blended well into a complete history. To be fully complete, however, I would add drawings or pictures of the original straight wing prototype (rare, but they do exist)... My only other comment is that I would like to see a larger color photo section for the price of the book.
Great aircraft technical review.

A must have for the aviation historian. Solid information on our first jet combat in Korea and beyond.

The F-86 Sabre....To aircraft lovers and historians, a NEW Sabre book has arrived and was well worth the wait!! Author Duncan Curtis has done his homework and has produced a superlative product! He has done a good balance of the Sabre history in the pages written. He has, for perhaps some readers, turned up new information and this makes for good reading. The photo content is excellent. The only minor problem is that the printer should have done more color for the price and Mike Fox's artwork should have been in color on pages 188/189. This book is a definite "get one" for your library.

In 1963 Ray Wagner published "The North American Sabre," (Doubleday) and not since then has anyone come even close to telling the definitive story of the F-86 Sabre until Duncan Curtis' effort. Wagner's book is long out of print, (Shame on Doubleday, it's their loss). So, if anyone wants to know about the Sabre, Curtis's book is the one to add to their library. I doubt, quite seriously, that anyone, ever, will be able to top the amount of research and effort and knowledge of the F-86 varients that has been recorded in this book. Way to go, Duncan!
