The MIG-21 has been built in greater numbers than any other warplane of the period since World WarII, although when it first entered service with the Soviet air forces in the 1950s it was dismissed rather scornfully as a useful but highly limited clear-weather interceptor. Since then it has been transformed into an extremely useful multi-role fighter. There is a small label on the inside of the front boards stating this book has been slightly damaged.

16 Whitehouse, Arch Tank : The Battles they fought and the men who drove them.... from Flanders to Korea.
UK Macdonald & C0 ( publishers ) Ltd 1961 1st Edition Hardcover Fair Poor Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
Fighting tanks are the most uncomfortable, unadaptable, unfragrant pieces of military equipment ever devised. they are expected to move on, fighting until they are blown up, burned out or shot to junk. There isn't a soft spot or a rounded corner anywhere aboard - inside or out. In this absorbing book - the first on the subject- the author tells the story of the tank's beginnings, of its role in World War 11, and its importance today. He recalls all the great tank battles and the men who fought them. The black boards show shelf wear and the text block shows heavy spotting to the page margins and edges. The DJ is torn and chipped and faded. Although not in the best of condition this is still a readable copy on this fascinating subject.
