4.0 out of 5 stars good read, 15 Dec. 2016

Overall i thought this to be a good book , well illustrated and informative. My only criticism would be given the lack of combat this aircraft had, some more information on further developments of the HE162 would have been useful

Whilst it can be argued the Osprey format normally tries to be the proverbial quart in a pint pot, this one is a real example of this. I really skimmed over the subject. As such, it can only really be described as a primer. If it had been divided into WW2 and "modern" i think there could have been 2 good Vanguards not one mediocre one

This was i felt a good coverage of this final period of the war in europe. Steven Zaloga is back on form and whilst constrained by the usual length of the campaign series, it does what it needs to do.

Thought this was a very good addition to the Campaign series. Covers a period not fully covered before, good commentary and analysis. Good illustrations. Only quibble- felt maps could be better

I was very much looking forward to this addition to the series but was disappointed. Although a reasonable effort I am not convinced it adds much to what is available in other osprey titles
