You're a prop partisan. Aunt Millie's a jet junkie. And she never fathomed your fascination with WWII warplanes.

Show Aunt Millie Storm of Eagles.

Subtitled "The Greatest Aviation Photographs Of World War II", Osprey's picture-packed "coffee-table" volume melds familiar photos with never-before-seen wartime shots – all in crystal crisp clarity.

Eight chapters chart the saga over 248 pages:

  • The Third Reich Moves On Europe
  • Battle for Britain
  • The Bear In The East
  • Waking the giant
  • War In The Med
  • CBI Theater
  • Liberating Europe
  • War In The Pacific

Each section includes a brief historical overview. Most spreads sport between two and four images – some in color. And extended, explanatory captions accompany illustrations.

Published in association with the National Museum of World War II Aviation, it's also a great way to introduce folks – including kids – to World War II aviation.

So the next time Aunt Millie raids your refrigerator, show her this lavishly illustrated survey. Even she'll enjoy this one!

My sincere thanks to Osprey Publishing for this review sample!
