Reviews

This is a splendid book, which supports the Valiant's groundbreaking place in aviation history. * Airfix Model World * This is an excellent book, into which one can dip at random and always find something interesting. * Aeroplane * A good book that fills a previously lamentable gap. * Britain at War *
