Compiled from mission debriefing reports and eyewitness interviews, the book is what you should expect from a unit history - a day-to-day account of actions in which the group was involved including accounting for every kill and loss. This is a perfect resource for anyone who wants to know who fought with the 56th, the quantity and types of aircraft they damaged or destroyed and their war-time fates. It is a perfect mix of story - telling and pertinent data as far as I'm concerned.
On top of that the book is loaded with photos of the pilots and aircraft of the group. Many aircraft appear in multiple photos (a boon to the modeler or aviation illustrator) including close-ups of the nose art on many of the ships.
If you are looking for a romantic look at the life of a World War II fighter pilot, this is not the book for you. If, however, you are interested in hard dates, factual information about enemy encounters and the general operational history of the 56th, this is an excellent resource.
