I have been buying Squadron/Signal In Action books since they first hit the market back in 1971. They have always been an affordable way to get info regarding the subject that is helpful for the model builder and historian.

This is the third issue devoted to the F-15 Eagle. I did get the first version which was number 24 but it is buried in the library someplace so this review will not be a comparison. Aren't you all lucky.

David Doyle had done almost 100 books for Squadron continues the success of the series with a very informative and covers the full history of the Eagle from development through the Strike Eagle. The book follows the tried and true style of the In Action series with a small bit of written info followed by tons of pictures with great descriptions. Interspersed among the pages are some line drawings showing either side views of the versions or details such as the ejection seat.

One thing that has changed over the years is the inclusion of much more color photos and the lesser number of profiles. The color pics of the Streak Eagle are pretty neat but I would have liked a few more pictures of the smaller air forces that operate it but that is because I love small air forces.

There are 80 pages plus the two covers. The pictures are sharp and clear and of a good size so you can actually see the details.

Another nice book in the In Action series.

Thanks to David Doyle and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
