Review:

If you need to know about the United States Army Airforce in World War II then, quite simply, you need this book. Martin Bowman has excelled himself as far as breadth of subject is concerned. The information contained within this book won't tell you everything you need to know about any one airforce, theatre of operations, or type of plane, but it is guaranteed to have SOMETHING about EVERYTHING. I am a Designer/Researche/Producer for a Computer Games firm, and I found this work to be of incredible use in our World War II aviation product. It provides a springboard to further information, and will really help you know what it is that you need to know. --By A Customer -

As the HeavyBombers.com web master, I get asked a lot of questions on a daily basis. Martin Bowman's "Handbook" never strays far from my desk. This is 270 pages of details. From his very handy section on AAF units through a great section on uniform items to a very informative appendix section - this is a great book to own. You won't go wrong with this purchase. --By A Customer
