Review quote

"You would expect to have a lot of 'There I was' stories in the book and you'll find them here. These add a great deal of interest and allow the reader to see what combat was like during the conflict. The images chosen are superb and as color photography was coming into more widespread use, many of the images are in full color. There is also the usual profiles section that we've come to expect in Osprey aviation books. Overall, it is an excellent addition to the series and a book that no Corsair or Korean War enthusiast should miss." -Scott Van Aken, "www.modelingmadness.com "(April 2009)
