Plenty of personal accounts from pilots talking about their experiences throughout the war, sprinkled throughout the book. There are also plenty of archive photos, along with a section colour artwork with 10 pages of beautiful colour profiles plus another 3 pages of squadron and more personal insignias.

This is another in the outstanding Combat Aircraft series and it follows the same successful format of previous Osprey volumes. It is filled with photographs and personal accounts. The colour profile section is notable for the variety of schemes the Folgores and Veltros wore in various air arms. There is also a colour art section on the gruppo and stormo insignia painted on the sides of many Macchi fighters. The level of editing is superb and the book reads in a logical and easy to understand format. I highly recommend this latest volume on a lesser known subject known as the Macchi C.202 and C.205V. It's a worthy addition to any military aviation historian or enthusiast's shelves.
