Reviews

."..rich in events and anecdotes which take us not only through the history of the American experience with the B-57 but also through the Vietnam War itself. The book also fully documents the story of the Australian-crewed Canberra's as well as the brief but interesting use of the B-57 by the VNAF." - Bart Cusumano, "IPMS/USA

"B-57 Canberra Units of the Vietnam War "should be of great interest to enthusiasts of the early jet age and especially welcome among veteran crew members seeing their hitherto-unsung deeds finally getting their due." - "Vietnam "(June 2011)

"The Canberra is currently a very popular modeling subject, with recent well-received kits put out by Airfix, Classic Airframes and Italeri. The B-57 underwent numerous pint scheme changes during the course of the Vietnam War, many of which are detailed in specially commissioned plates, which will be of particular interest to aviation modelers." - "Flying Models "(April 2011)

"This volume ... includes a chapter on the Vietnam deployment of No. 2 Squadron, RAAF, with its Canberra B20s, which were attached to the US 35 TFW from 1967-71. The author has relied heavily on oral history and declassified sources to provide the story of an aircraft and the crews that contributed so much to that conflict, but which has been largely overlooked by historians until now." -Thomas Robertson, "Model Aircraft "(April 2011)
