The F-15 is without doubt one of the best fighters in the world, with a staggering combat record to prove it. This book covers almost every aspect of this exceptional jet: it's development, different models, foreign (that is non-US) versions, combat records (up to the second half of the 90's), operator units and experimental versions, all very detailed and concentrated, often heavily technical.
The author aims high to discuss all these topics in one book, but fortunately for us, readers, hits the mark in an impressive way. 112 pages don't seem to be too much, but beware, the book is 8,5" x 11", printed with small letters - if you read it you feel like being bombarded with concentrated information. It's a good read, but not some light stuff for your leisure time on the beach - you need to be prepared to take on all these info, which includes tons of technical details.
The pages are packed with lots of photos and illustrations, most of them are black&white but there are many in color. They cover everything the text covers, leaving quite an impression. Reading the text and looking at the photos you can't help but wonder just how much work the author must have pushed into the writing of this book. Very impressive indeed.
Since the book was originally published in 1998, it cannot cover the latest 12-13 years of F-15 operations, but if you want to get a good and solid foundation for your F-15 knowledge, this is the book you have to read first - but only if you are a serious kind of F-15 fan.
Don't say I didn't warn you!
