The audio quality is terrible being from '82 and the nasal narration cuts into the content. I have found it very difficult to continue listening to what is probably an excellent book had it been narrated in an a more uplifting style and with the benefit of remastering.

This is a great book with lots of interesting information and first-hand accounts of dogfights, compiled by the author through first-hand discussions with the aces written about. It is impressively well researched. I've read a lot of books on WWII air combat and like this one very much. If you like WWII aviation history, I'm sure you'll like this.
I think the narrator is fine -- the problem, though, is that the recording quality is quite bad. It sounds like the tapes they digitized from are much worse for the passage of time (muffled sounding) or that person who did the digitization did a very bad job. Although the recording quality is bad, to me it is intelligible -- but I suggest you listen to a sample first to make sure you are OK with it.

This book is essential for anyone with an avid interest in military history and/or aviation. The descriptions are very detailed and give you a basis to vividly imagine the experiences of the profiled fighter pilots. From unconscionable skill of Marseille, to the undeterable Bader, to the machine-like Hartmann, this book is a great insight into the world of the fighter pilot.
The audio quality is not that great, with the volume fluctuating at times. But the reader is good enough not to refrain from going audio.
I highly recommend this item.
