Good variety, good value

This book offers a good sample of paintings of famous aces or famous squadrons from a variety of artists. Some aces that are included are: Johnnie Johnson, Galland, Bader, Marseille, Hartmann, Boyington, Flying Tigers etc etc. Also included are some lesser known French, Italian and even Finnish aces. There are excellent brief narratives about the history of each subject to compliment the pictures. The styles of each artist soon become apparent and my preference is for the realism portrayed in Taylor's art work. Overall I think this book is good value for the price, especially if you have an interest in WW2 aviation.
