Michael J. H. Taylor, author; cover photo of Saab JA-37 Viggen. Generally, this book is comprised of photos of most world fighters during the 1945-1985 era. I guess that works for a book published in 1984. The photos are generally quite good, representative of the aircraft, and are described by captions of varying length and worth. The F-84 coverage includes three B&W photos on pages 14, 15, and 39.

This book does not pretend to be comprehensive in its coverage of the various subject aircraft.

I have enjoyed this book, not so much as a comprehensive description of any aircraft, but rather as a leisure time perusal of the development of fighter aircraft through the years. Not a must-have for F-84 coverage, it is what it is -- a coffee table picture book.
