A good book, let down by its author,
This review is from: USAF F-4 Phantom II MiG Killers 1965-68 (Combat Aircraft) (Paperback)
This is quite an interesting book - it taught me some things I didn't know about the F-4. However, the author does not explain many of the acronyms or much of the terminology. It may be obvious to him, for example, that 'GIB' stands for 'Guy In Back' but I doubt many of his readers would understand quite so quickly.
The colour plates were great graphically but the captions which went with them at the back of the book (or should that just be 'BotB'?) were a little dry and soulless.
Good but not great, and certainly not a 'stand alone book' (i.e. something you can just buy and read without too much in-depth knowledge of the subject).
