By Ray Bowden

"... It's one of the finest books I've seen"
(A.C. , New Windsor, NY -- crew chief 91BG)

"... fascinating, nostalgic and thought provoking..."
(H.F.L. , Pittsburgh, PA -- USAAF veteran)

"...unrestrained praise awarded."
(Ragged Irregular -- 91BGMA journal)

"...formidable work of reference ... will be compulsory purchase..."
(Wingspan magazine, March 1994)

"... an absolute MUST..."
(Flypast Magazine, March 1994)

"I was very impressed by the quality of the book and its printing. And I was taken by your writing ... your opening paragraphs and your approach to the subject held me ... now I have a different perspective of nose art, having looked at it in the past somewhat disinterestedly, without appreciation of what it might symbolize. Now that has changed."
(J.G. , San Diego, CA -- USAAF veteran)

"It is magnificent! The book is a treasure."
(B.S. , Shreveport, LA -- 91BG pilot, veteran)

"Your book is a work of art ... I can see many hours spent in research. Congratulations for a job well done!"
(J.B. , Garland, TX -- pilot, 91BG veteran)

"It is the best of all the nose art books I have seen. It was well planned and you obviously did a monumental amount of research ... It's a winner!"
(R.A. , LA, CA -- 91Bg veteran)

"The book is wonderful ... I think it is one of the most complete, detailed jobs I've ever seen."
(D.D. , St louis Park, MN -- 8AF veteran)

"I must say that none of my collection of books has given me more pleasure or provided me with greater interest than your new volume..."
(N.J. , Cumbria, UK -- aviation buff)
