The usual combination of color profiles and personl anecdotes tells the very unusual story of the Bristol F2B. At first glance, this was just another plainly-marked British WWI airplane, but its excellent performance was on par with contemporary single-seaters, and it could be considered one of the first true 'multi-role' aircraft. The unique operational concept...resulted in some very high scoring tail gunners. Its important service in Palestine in WWI is covered in its own section.
Aerospace Modeler (January 2009)
Jon Guttman's latest offering is a long-awaited title, since the Bristol F.2B is easily the most popular World War I two-seater among buffs and historians... After finishing Bristol Fighter Aces, any red-blooded reader will want to man his Brisfit and go strafe the Bray-Corbie Road.
Barrett Tillman, Aviation History (March 2008)
It is a superb book on the subject and one that I can recommend to you without reservation.
