The artists include David Shepherd, Michael Turner, Frank Wooton and John Young whilst the authors include noted historians and RAF experts. Each battle or campaign has one page dedicated to the colour artwork and three pages of text by the author that includes a map. Overall this book is an interesting combination of historic record and aviation art.
