  • Like in other reviews, one has probably read the fact that this work omits aircraft noteworthy of being mentioned, such as the Junkers Ju 52 "Auntie Ju" Trimotor or the Douglas C-47 Dakota; then again, these are not "combat aircraft", but I can understand their dilemma being that I too am an avid aviation/WWII buff. There is one IMPORTANT aircraft that SHOULD HAVE BEEN included,however; many would agree with me on this, and it's almost a crime that it's inclusion was neglected: the plane Churchill labelled "The Scourge of the Atlantic"--a.k.a. The German Focke Wulfe FW 200 Condor. I was shocked NOT SEEING this aircraft because, although it was renowned mostly for its operations against convoys in the North Atlantic ( popularly known as The Battle of the Atlantic, where the aircraft coordinated with U-boat wolfpacks) the Condor still became a famous fixture in the annals of World War II aviation. Too bad! Still, this marvelous work compensates by adding obscure aircraft, including Italy's seldom mentioned Piaggio P.1011 four-engined bomber. All in all, the book deserves a five-star rating regardless!! EXCELLENT WORK!!!

  • I disagree with the wording "Complete," but it is admittedly close. Missing aircraft that saw operational service in WWII but are excluded that come to mind are Consolidated PBY, Short Sunderland, Westland Whirlwind, Wesland Landsyder, and the Dornier Flying boats. However, I am very satisfied with this book in that it attempted such a tall order, provided three-view orthographic drawings for each aircraft, and included a wide variety of aircraft from every country indiscriminately. Any ommissions were obviously unintentional, given that the nearly ubiquitous PBY was among them.

  • I had looked for an affordable "coffee table book" and didn't see anything new. I got this here used and it's just what I wanted. I'm a private pilot enjoying my old love of WWII aircraft (all my old books were gone long ago). This is a nice mix of pictures with brief text showing the development and issues of each one. I'll be reading this one (and enjoying the pictures) for a long time.

  • An excellent reference, nicely illustrated. It could use more tabular data, and more uniformity in what data is displayed. It is awkwardly over-sized. But coupled with other encyclopedias of WW II aircraft it is extremely useful.

  • This book is a fantastic compilation of illustrations of World War II aircraft...one of the best that I've seen. Initially this book was difficult to find, but my father and I have now been able to purchase about five copies between us. Well worth the price. I have given this book as a gift on more than one occassion. It is a real treasure. You will not be disappointed.

  • This book is written by three Italian writers/artists. The three-way views are real artwork. Great detail, great pictures and the write-ups are excellent.

  • O was expecting a very small book. I was presently surprised it was a very large book! My son loves it!

  • The book is advertised as a Complete listing of all WW2 Combat Aircraft and ignoring trainers, transports, and patrol aircraft/bombers was within an hour able to list at least 20 that were excluded and some of them I were surprised.

    Farman F221/222 bomber - first allied plane to bomb Berlin
    Commonwealth Boomerang - Australian home grown ingenuity
    Breda Ba.88 - The worst combat aircraft of WW2
    Nakajimaz J1N "Gekko" - A successful early Japanese night fighter
    Savoia-Machetti S.M.82 - Italian bomber version that carried up to 4,000kg bombs
    Martin 123 (aka US B-10) - used by the Dutch early in the pacific
    Consolidated B-32 - A crew member was the last American killed in air combat

    I also don't quite understand why patrol bombers were excluded as combat aircraft. The Fw 200 in a 9 month period destroyed around 331,000 tons of shipping, American Patrol Bombers of the USN dropped almost 13,000 tons of bombs on target and shot down 146 fighters and 213 bombers.

    Pros:
    Has a lot of aircraft and lots of great prints and pictures.
    Lists a number of unknown aircraft or prototypes.
    Does a pretty good job of describing them.

    Cons:
    Title is not correct.
    Lists machine gun armament as Machines Guns, instead of the caliber they were.
    Sorted by country, then the plane order is not logical
    Table of Contents is not accurate. There are a number of aircraft in the book that are not listed (Tupolev TB-3 as an example).

    If you are looking for a single book with all combat aircraft, get a copy of Jane's or Rand McNally Encyclopedia of Military Aircraft. If you are looking for a book to add to your library and at the right price then this would be a great addition
