Good Book: Clash of Wings

by usshelm (WorldCat user published 2008-11-05) Good Permalink

This book is average in that it is your basic book on World War II in the air. And most of it I have read about, but it does have it's qualities in that it cover all World War II in detail which to me is a very defining fact about a book. all in all it is a good book.
