[I]t provides a comprehensive history of the Eighth, one spanning both the human and technical aspects of the story… It is marvelously illustrated… it is a good introduction to the topic. It provides all the information needed to finish with a clear understanding of what happened and why, without baffling a reader with technical jargon.
With The Mighty Eighth, Osprey offers modelers and historians a great deal of information to stoke our imaginations, springboards for more in-depth research, and source material for our research…I believe that for a modeler, this book is a treasure trove of images and source material, whether for individual aircraft or personnel equipment, or for dioramas. Recommended.
