By John Matlock on November 13, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is quite possibly the ultimate U.S. Air Force History book. It is written under the general guidence of Lt. Col Dik Alan Daso, USAF (Ret), Curator of Modern Military Aircraft National Air and Space Museum. The individual contributors, some 35 in number vary from retired military, professional historians, librarians, and more. All in all, individual experts to write on particular subjects of interest.

This is a large format book, and it contains a lot of pages. It begins with the first flights taken by the military in balloons and concludes with operations in Iraq. The book is arranged like a diary, with significant events in chronological order. A particular point of interest is the little pictures of the medals of honor won on those dates, along with a description of the actions of the winner.

In addition there are periodic two page spreads that describe significant activities, technical advantages, or historical points of interst regarding the Air Force.

It's a beautiful book, one that belongs in every military library.

This book was great and had all of its pages, but it had very noticeable wear and tear on the front and back cover.

Book says John Levitow won the Medal of Honor on November 8 2000 when that was the day he died. He received the Medal of Honor on May 14 1970. Book is alright. Reads like an almanac.
