5.0 out of 5 stars Aviation History at it's best. July 30, 2001
Jay Miller is renowned for writing some of the best books ever published on aviation history. He approaches his subjects with a depth of knowledge which is unsurpassed. The level of detail on each aircraft type is mind boggling, but please don't expect this book to be a collection of detail photographs- there are other books around that do that better. Quite simply this is a book for those who have a thirst for understanding and learning about the more obscure technical details of these immensely important experimental aircraft.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent descriptions of some fascinating planes July 25, 2001
As usual Jay Miller goes the proverbial extra mile to provide detailed information, often found nowhere else, on some of the most fascinating planes ever to fly. This book is for those with intelligence and education, who want more than a simplistic children's "picture book". Highly recommended!
