"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Graff's writing is so good that even a person not inspired by aircraft will come to love these Flying Warbirds, and all readers will learn from as well as admire the book's outstanding images." - Travel for Aircraft, Seattle Post-Intelligencer



"This reasonably priced coffee table book is loaded with outstanding photos of nineteen historic military aircraft owned by the Flying Heritage Collection. An operational history accompanies each warbird, including where it was acquired, and restored. Flying characteristics and the choice of paint schemes and national insignia are described. The full color cockpit and engine photos are intriguing, and a personal favorite of mine. Historical black & white images enhance the readers understanding of the operational use of these now rare aircraft. The author does an outstanding job of blending eye catching photographs with a well written history that will hold the attention of every warbird expert, and casual reader alike." - AircraftWrecks.com



"I expected Flying Warbirds to be just another book of glossy photos and trite facts, the sort one normally finds in the bargain rack discounted well below the original price. After perusing the first few pages, however, it became readily apparent I had misjudged this book. Flying Warbirds is not just another throw-away book on WWII aircraft. Rather, this is the story of how Microsoft co-founder and military enthusiast Paul G. Allen created a non-profit organization, dubbed the Flying Heritage Collection, dedicated to preserving historically significant WWII-era warplanes. And this is no ordinary collection of planes gathering dust as static displays in a museum. These airplanes live. These airplanes fly." - Armchair General



"...packed with high-quality, large format images, 'Flying Warbirds' is a close look at the remarkable collection of Flying Heritage Collection" - Aviation Week



"Aviation historian Cory Graff presents a stunning pictorial history of the war's most iconic combat aircraft. Color photos and crisp narrative showcase the aeronautical histories of these aircrafts." - Military Officer
