This is a new, hardbound publication that is comprised of the contents of four previously-released volumes in the "Duel" series from Osprey.  This compendium is edited by Tony Holmes and includes:

  • Part 1 (by Tony Holmes), Channel Clashes: Spitfire II/V vs Bf 109E (Duel 67)
  • Part II (by Edward M. Young), Hell in the Pacific: F4F Wildcat vs A6M Zero-sen (Duel 54)
  • Part III (by Dmitriy Khazanov & Aleksander Medved), Air War in the East: La-5/7 vs Fw 190 (Duel 39)
  • Part IV (by Edward M. Young), Ill-Fated Defense of the Home Islands: F4U Corsair vs Ki-84 'Frank' (Duel 73)

This book has been produced to very high standards, and it was a joy to hold and read through.  The hard binding is extremely sturdy, and all pages have a nice semi-gloss finish that just looks and feels first-rate.   Color paintings and profiles are done to a high standard as well, and photos are clearly printed.
