"Each jet is discussed following a structure that discusses the development and design, testing, weapon systems and armaments, tactics and techniques, deployments and bases of operation. Add to this, first hand pilot and operations accounts from engagements in Iraqi, Bosnia, Afghanistan and other theatres of operation and you get some very exciting real-world stories of the capabilities of these jets as well as their impact on opposing forces." -Ken McDevitt, IPMS/USA
"... a superb book for those who want to learn more about [fighter jets], but don't want to be overwhelmed with stats. The pilot stories add a lot of spice to the book and the large number of photos add some great eye candy. It is a great addition to the library of a jet fanatic and one I can highly recommend to those wanting to learn more about the subject." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
"This book is full of well-researched information and personal stories. Author’s portrayal of the recent US Air Force fighters is indicative, he studied this subject for a long time and in this book examines some of the most iconic and recognized aircraft of the last 30 years, combining combat stories with photographs of the aircraft." -NeoPopRealism Journal

Concentrate all these arguments in only 256 pages it's no an easy task, but the author gives us an excellent synthesis and view of the today modern aviation, writing a book worth reading for the casual reader and enjoyable for the aviation fan. The book presents the same graphic design of the previous F-15 ENGAGED of the same author, and a stunning collection of air-to-air photos of the fighters that is absolutely amazing.
