What the reviewers said:

In the 10 years I have been writing this column I have seen hundreds of books. If I had to choose the one book that represented a publishing milestone, a stupendous effort, and a major source all in one volume, it would be this one.
— Peter Mersky, Naval Aviation News
Among the book’s manifold virtues for the enthusiast - and I suspect that all the information in it must have been compiled by someone with the dogged devotion to the research task that only a true enthusiast could bring and another could appreciate - is that as a part of the coverage of each conflict there is a table of aircraft units involved, as well as notes on individual airframes and their colours.
— Scale Aircraft Modelling
This is an immensely valuable single-source reference providing facts and figures on subjects ranging from the Greek Civil War to the Gulf War, and from Northern Ireland to Mozambique. ****
— Aircraft Illustrated
Vic Flintham has produced something that covers just about every small war that has taken place since World War 2, joined them all together and provided his readers with the most amazing set of facts and figures that can hardly be beaten for its comprehensiveness and skill in research.
— Aviation News
At first glance the title....might appear to be another skimming the surface coffee table work - not so, go seek it out and discover the depth of this monumental reference tool.
