The book provides a goodly number of photos of the aircraft and pilots who flew the plane. There are combat reports from both sides on flight operations and like all Osprey 'Aviation Elite Unit' titles, there are several pages of color profiles. Appendices include a full unit organization, a roster of pilots, biographies of some of the more notable personnel associated with the 163, a flight log of every combat sortie flown by 163s and a section on armament ... a fascinating read on an equally intriguing aircraft.
