What I really liked about the book was that it included information on aircraft infrequently contained in most WW II aviation data books, such as trainers and reconnaissance aircraft. It also contains entries for the lesser known air forces such as Australia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Romania, and so forth. It also includes data for the design failures such as the Bristol Buckingham, Focke-Wulf Ta 154, Westland Whirlwind, Vultee Vengeance, Armstrong Albemarle, Avro Manchester, Blackburn Botha, and Brewster Buccaneer.
2. Although it is claimed that "all the major combat types of 1939-1945 are covered along with many minor ones", omissions still exist. An example is that there is no full entry of Seversky P-35 (which, for instance, saw direct combat actions in the Philippines during the early Pacific campaign), except for slight mention in passing under the Republic P-43 entry.
