...contains a large amount of good pictures in colour and black and white, which partly have been shot by the author himself and printed on good quality paper. They are pictures of the Phantom's in action but also on the ground, intercepted Russian planes, missiles, cockpit, target playing Canberra's, low flying and used flying maps etc, etc. The innumerable pictures from the RAF world really complement the book.Dave Gledhill settles himself with this book really amongst the better authors of aviation books. Great job and 'watch six'!!...this was only his first book!! --Aviation Reviews
