Images of War, US Military Helicopters, Rare Photographs From Wartime Archives

READ THE FULL REVIEW

A new addition to the very popular Images At War Series that includes mostly full colour photographs. The helicopter story has developed since 1945 and rotary wing aircraft have made some impressive advances which are nicely detailed in this new book, with some clear introductory text, good captions and extended captions, with some longer sections of text. As always the images are outstanding. – highly recommended.
