Excellent title, covering the battles fought in the skies of Korea by these two iconic fighters, representing the top of the line in fighter technology at the moment in both Russia and the States. And also dispells with the myth of American pros versus chinese tiros, giving some insight on the involvment of crack Soviet pilots in the fray, which was not as one-sided as some might think.Very highly recommended.

A definite front-runner for best in Osprey's successful Duel Series, this is a brilliant look at the Korean War's epic tussle between the F-86 Sabre and the MiG-15. The book is divided into excellent chapters covering: the aircraft in question, their development and technical specifications; pilots and pilot training; tactics; analysis of combat; etc. All of this is complimented with a vast array of photographs and illustrations. All in all, this is a superb look at these two aircraft and the war they raged over Korea from 1950 to 1953.

Like all books in this range it gives a good overall blow by blow account of how they compared against each other. It is good for someone who wants to get an idea of what they were like. Bit shallow in overall account of the war situation but then it wasn't written to answer that part but worthwhile for all that.

An interesting and comprehensive book. Reason for 4 stars is that I'd have loved a bit more about the aircraft themselves - don't get me wrong, there is a lot in the book about their performance and history. Its just that I was wanting more - probably a bit unfair but something to put them in a broader context would have been good, e.g. their economics and wider use.

Very interesting with regard to the kill ratio between the aircraft.
When the best Russian pilots met the best US pilots, it seems that they were very well matched in these aircraft.
Could do with more combat reports .
