Praise

“…another superb read in the Duel series, a series that has really matured over the years. This is one of the better volumes in this reviewer’s opinion, and no matter how much you think you know about the subjects, you will learn more. It is a book I can easily recommend to you not only for the way it is written, but also for its excellent choice of period images and pilot stories.”
- Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (November 2012)

“…provides a fine in-depth survey of one of Hitler’s major offensives against London, and how Britain’s Gloster meteor 1 was the first jet fighter used against them. Vintage black and white photos accompany descriptions of combats and victories in a fine survey of the world’s first jet-against-jet battle, suitable for military and aviation libraries alike.”
- James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review (January 2013)

“Donald Nijboer superbly sets the stage with a brief preface on nascent jet propulsion technologies.  A compact chronology, design notes, technical remarks, strategic assessment and “Combatant” comments follow.  Then after two biographic sidebars, Nijboer’s effort crests with engaging accounts of V1 interceptions over 1944 Britain.”
