    I read this book through and it is quite informal. However, this sometimes lead to a dry, boring read. That occurs most often when a topic Is introduced as the topic constantly subdivides into many more topics and then you can become confused. But for the most part this book was a great read and I recommend it to any WWII enthusiast or air plane combat enthusiast.
