Produced on sleek paper in an unusual format (10 1/4 by 10 1/4 inches), it features numerous color pictures and two full-page paintings of the F-86s and the men who flew them. Few, if any, of these photos have appeared before in print. The volume also includes three appendices that will gladden the hearts of students of the war.
