"Davies’ Red Eagles is a fitting tribute to [the pilots who died flying the Mi-Gs], and to all those who flew and supported the MiG training effort. His is a wonderful tale, superbly told, unveiling one of the last great unknown cold war stories." -Richard P Hallion, Air & Space (March 2009)
"…a notable achievement … a powerful survey." -California Bookwatch, November 2008
"…the book benefits from recently declassified information. …[The stories of] over 30 pilots and crewmen that participated in the unit … makes [for] an interesting read." – Air Classics
"Every once in a while, one runs across a book that simply sucks one into the story from page one until the end of the book. This is one of those … So good is this book that if you buy only two or three aviation books a year, this one needs to be one of those." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (October 2008)
"This is an engaging combination of an adventure story and a case study in military reform…Davies’ major achievement is his demonstration of the Red Eagles’ role in facilitating the USAF’s development into a potent instrument of air supremacy that remains important even in the current era of antiterrorism."- Publishers Weekly (July 2008)
