This book is very well written, and conveys the sense of dedication and hopelessness that these men must have felt during the closing days of the war. The book is as much about personalities as equipment, but provides a wealth of information about the airplanes used. It will be extremely useful to modelers.
Robert Forsyth, International Plastic Modelers Society (July 2008)
Aviation Elite Unit books are a departure from the usual Aircraft of the Aces ... and focus on units and their histories instead of specific planes and fronts. Jagdverband 44 covers the squadron of experten ... shows off some of the specialized weapons the Me262 used and details some of the interesting jet to fighter combats that occurred. Air war enthusiasts will find [this book] enjoyable and interesting to read ... the color plates are invaluable references when painting [Me262] aircrafts.
Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)
All in all, this is a superlative book on the subject that will be treasured by both historians and modelers alike. It is one that I can recommend to you without reservation.

Again the text is exemplorary and achieves the perfect balance btween narrative and personal account to not only describe the history, but also to bring it to life.
