Booklist Review

The aircraft of 21 nations is covered in this sequel to Warbirds (1999), which focused on the U.S.


Library Journal Review

In this companion volume to Warbirds (LJ 11/15/99), which cataloged U.S. military aircraft, Fredricksen examines aircraft from the rest of the world. Thousands of aircraft have been built or adapted to military purposes, and the author has chosen carefully from the utterly obscure to the world-renowned to represent, in over 300 examples, the variety of machines in military use through the years. This second volume, again written for the casual investigator, includes a black-and-white photo and a short history for each aircraft and fills in the spaces with the same thorough resource lists to help students of aviation to expand their knowledge. The benefit of this approach, when aimed at the researcher having only a passing acquaintance with aeronautics, is that one can delve as deeply as necessary with only this volume, and its companion, as a start. The pair should be considered for any general interest library with aviation traffic. Mel D. Lane, Sacramento, CA (c) Copyright 2010.

Choice Review

Fredriksen, in an oversized book that is companion to his Warbirds (CH, May'00), provides portraits for 330 warplanes from around the world. The types of aircraft, WW I to the present, include fighters, bombers, transports, flying boats, trainers, helicopters, reconnaissance aircraft, and several lesser-known types. As in the 1999 volume, which was oriented to US planes, each entry is complete with one black-and-white photograph and information concerning physical dimensions (including weight), engines, performance, armament, and in many cases, pedigree. Fredriksen's work is again distinguished by its general bibliography and bibliography of aircraft, which are far more extensive than those in the work of his better-known predecessors Bill Gunston, Kenneth Munson, and William Green. A museum list, a list of aircraft journals and magazines, and a good index complete the work. A helpful, if pricey, general introduction, valuable for those holding the companion work. M. J. Smith Jr. Tusculum College
