Reviews

"Hunting for hidden treasures has always had wide appeal, but Nicholas A. Veronico brings entirely new dimensions to the genre. He provides in fascinating detail the past, present, and future of a number of great subjects fascinating vintage airplanes rescued from locations such as the English Channel, a frozen lake in Norway, and more. Hidden Warbirds II is a fundamental contribution to aviation history, well researched and well written, as easy to read as a novel, and absolutely loaded with facts." - Walter J. Boyne, USAF (ret.), author/historian and former director, Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum "Nicholas Veronico, the author of Hidden Warbirds as well as Hidden Warbirds II, is easy going and brimming with knowledge especially whenever relic warbird finding (wreckchasing) arises in the conversation. Hidden Warbirds was reviewed earlier, and what a great read it is with its variety of warbirds, places, people and stories. Happily, a sequel is slated for release this June and it is greatly promising indeed." - SeattlePI.com "What would a story look like if you began with a crusade to preserve the vanishing history of our greatest generation, added some modern-day Indiana Jones style archaeology and a global aviation scavenger hunt, and finished up with raise-from-the-dead restoration expertise that would shame an Egyptologist? The answer is Hidden Warbirds II. Once again Nicholas Veronico has provided a seamless blend of meticulous research and vibrant photography that documents some of the great archaeological adventures of our time." - Brad O'Connor, author of Stealth Fighter: A Year in the Life of an F-117 Pilot "exceptionally good reads especially if you're fascinated by vintage aviation." - Silodrome.com "Global and fraught with risk, the adventure stories in Hidden Warbirds II would do Indiana Jones proud. From icy Norway to the steamy outback, we are there, witnesses to epic treasure hunts and more the race to save the history of brave men." - Adam Makos, New York Times best-selling author of A Higher Call "Hidden Warbirds II continues the fascinating stories about these iconic aircraft that began in the critically acclaimed Hidden WArbirds. Illustrated throughout with more than 150 photos, including archival images and notably the before and after's as well as restorations, these Warbirds' stories have been painstakingly collected here in this outstanding follow up volume." - Warbird Digest "His passion for history and accuracy has produced another book devoted to World War II's historic aircraft wrecks without a bias. Each recovery has its own unique story and Veronico's writing refreshingly brings the reader each story. Hidden Warbirds II is rich and the reader is rewarded many times with each page. In fact, this book could serve as the only source for this blog for the remainder of 2014!" - Travel for Aircraft Blog "Nick's writing style is conversational and always engaging, and anyone who has the slightest interest in vintage aircraft is bound to find the stories of discovery in Hidden Warbirds II completely absorbing." - WarbirdsNews.com "The well-illustrated book is full of very readable stories of amazingly ambitious recovery projects which have led to long lost aircraft being brought back to life in museums. Definitely a good read for anyone who would like their eyes opened to the fascinations of aircraft archaeology." - Air Britain magazine "These books tell the absorbing tale of the discovery, recovery and rebuilding of Allied and Axis warbirds." - Aviation Week "It is a treasure trove of more than 20 stories of warbird recoveries and restoration. The book is well researched and an interesting read. More than 170 images, most in color, complement the informative text. As in the previous book, appendices provide excellent Internet resources for aircraft wreck and archaeology sites and Warbird restoration groups and aviation museums. Aviation buffs with enjoy this new Hidden Warbirds edition." - Tailhook Association Newsletter
