good experience

Previously had hardcover 1st printing. This softcover edition had updates including Desert Storm chapter. Highly recommended for aircombat aficionados.
Trash Obsession
This is a very entertaining book for fans of aviation, air combat, and tactics to use in flight simulators. Lots of pictures and diagrams, printed on glossy paper, easy to understand and follow, this book is a good primer for those who are looking to improve their air combat skills in flight simulators. It follows the history of air combat from WW1 to today's modern jets, and for each conflict it highlights the tactics used by pilots as they match their plane against the enemy. Norman Franks selects particular dogfights in each war to serve as examples of how fighter pilots put their aircraft's strengths to good use when battling in the skies. Speed, maneuverability, guns, durability ... all of these are taken into account.
This book knows its audience - mainstream America - and seeks to entertain and educate at the same time. Its a good book to keep around and appeals to fans of aviation of all ages.

This is a very good book covered the air combat history and tatics from WW1 to Gulf War. With charts and pictures, readers can find very usful information of the aircrafts, weapons, tatics plus background stories of each campaign and time period.
Since this books covers a wide range of time line, this is good for general readers who want to get comprehensive knowledge of air combat or readeds who just start reading materials in this field. For those who have more knowledge of air combat, this may not be the best for more depth of each time period.
Although with good coverage and materials, revision of typo is required if this book is going to be published again. Some of them are really obvious and may misdirected readers.
For summary, this is a good book for general readers' collection.
Daigrel
Other books are better for more detailed histories of air to air combat but as a start point this book is great. Well written, easy to understand and with excellent illustrations. Great place to start if you want a basic understanding of the history of air to air combat from WWI to Desert Storm.
