Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"The author discusses the development of both aircraft as well as their technical specifications and deployments during the Six Day War. Pilot training and tactics are also part of the story and one will find a few 'I was there' stories to add some spice to the book. As part of the appendices, there is a section on stats and analysis as well as a listing of MiG and Mirage engagements during the war. In all, a superlative inclusion to this series and one that I know you will find useful and informative." - Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness

"A pick for any serious military library." - The Midwest Book Review, October 2010

"...an effective evaluation of two classically matched adversaries. For anyone interested in supersonic jet warfare, it makes an interesting companion volume to earlier 'Duels,' such as Peter Davies' 2008 F-4 Phantom vs MiG-21: USAF & VPAF in the Vietnam War." -Jon Guttman, Aviation History (November 2011)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Although the opposing forces of the Six Day War were both flying comparable third-generation Mach 2 jet fighters, the pilots were trained to different standards, and were expected to utilize different tactics. Using the latest research, first-hand accounts, and specially commissioned artwork, Shlomo Aloni tells the dramatic story of the dogfights in the skies over the Middle East.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent overview 1 août 2010
Par Michael N. Satin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I must cordially disagree with Skyman's review of this book, or at least his conclusion. While he is quite right that it's a "technical/logistical compilation of aviation action", my understanding of Osprey's Duel series is that this is exactly what the books are supposed to be. As such, this is an excellent addition to the series about a subject in which I am very interested. I'm especially impressed by the author's ability to get information on the Arab/MiG-21 angle. This series requires a small, focused format and given those limitations I am very pleased by the book and impressed with how much Mr. Aloni has been able to pack into it.

I'd very much like to see an expanded treatment of air to air combat between Israel and the Arab countries in the jet age, especially during the Six Day War, but for what this book is supposed to do I think it is excellent. Thank you Mr. Aloni, and keep up the great work!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book 26 août 2010
Par Philip Sim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've been a fan of the 'Duel' series for quite a while now. Unfortunately, the quality of the books has been uneven. Some are good, while others are quite bad. This particular book belong to one of the better ones. The development of the two fighters (particularly the Mirage III), their technical aspects, their use in combat, were concise but well written. I learnt quite a few new details about the Mirage III and the Six-Day War in this book, which I had not come across in thicker tomes about the air war in the Middle East. For example, I did not know about the avionics problem the Mirage III had, which affected its combat performance. Only the training of the Israeli pilots and the use of manual over-ride helped to solve the problem. In short, it manages to pack quite a fair amount of information into such a compact format, more than I expected, frankly.

This is a worthwhile book to get even if your shelves are already filled with books on the Israeli-Arab conflicts, the Six-Day War, or the Israeli airforce.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Supersonic Jet Combat 25 septembre 2010
Par cpt matt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The French Mirage III and Soviet MiG-21 were both designed and built almost along the exact same time lines. Given the engine technology of the time and the intended uses of these planes as interceptors, it's no real surprise both have very similar size and performance. Which then, is the better plane? That is what the Duel Series is supposed to identify.

What I liked - if you read carefully, the author states the Mirage was better in the horizontal battle, the MiG-21 had a greater thrust to weight ratio, so it was better suited to the vertical battle. The French designed computer and radar were extremely unreliable and both fighters had to rely on manual means of aiming cannon. The Air to Air missiles of both sides were very primitive and virtually useless. Almost all of the Mirage kills came with the cannon. And here is the largest single difference of the two planes - the Mirage had 2x30mm cannon with 250 rounds. The MiG -21 had 1x30mm cannon with 30 rounds.

I really liked the color diagrams of the cockpits. There are some color photos; the B&W are clear & crisp. Brief history of both planes design, technical facts, some narratives of Israeli pilot's combat experiences. It certainly helped the Israelis that they were able to acquire a MiG-21 and test fly it prior to the 1967 war.

Downsides to the book - objectivity of the author lurks in the background, as well as very few narratives or perspectives from the Arab side. Why did the author chose to limit the comparison of these two planes by stopping at 1967? You may also want to read Osprey's Arab MiG- 19 and MiG-21 Units in Combat. That gives the Arab view of these combats. Later versions of the MiG-21 had better cannon and more successes against the Mirage III.

I would prefer the book address how each plane performed against the other throughout the entire career. Since this was largely a collection of stories from Israeli fighter pilots, it makes it look as if the Mirage III were vastly superior. These omissions are why I rated the book three stars. Superior training, tactics and aggressive pilots will always trump your opponent. What we're looking for here is an answer as to which is the better weapon. Ultimately, I think the authors are correct, but they overlook a lot of factors in arriving at the conclusion.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Duel between Mig-21s and Israeli Mirages 6 septembre 2010
Par Steven A. Peterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Another entry in the Osprey Publishing "Duel" series. Here, we see the French-made Mirages of Israel versus the MIG-21s of the Soviet Union engaged against one another in the Six-Day War of 1967. It ended up a mismatch, with the Israeli pilots doing a far better job than their Arab opponents.

As with others in the series, there is a structure to this book. First, it describes characteristics of the two jet planes. For one thing, the developmental history of the two--one Russian designed and the other French designed. Both--especially the Mirage--went through a lengthy evolution. Then, technical specifications of the two aircraft (there's a useful comparison in table format on page 31). The strategic situation is outlined, considering the runup to the six day war of 1967 and actual beginning of hostilities. Also, the training and readiness ofr pilots of the Israeli and Arab air forces is discussed. Then, the combat, where Israelis had by far the best of it. Finally, an analysis of the combat and statistical assessment of the outcome.

A brief but informative volume. . . .

Shilomo Aloni's Mirage III vs. MiG-21: Six Day War 1967 is a pick for any serious military library, offering a blend of first-hand accounts and surveys of the latest research to tell of dogfights over the Middle East. Photos and drawings in color illustrate the Mirage III aircraft and MiG 21 operations during the key aerial warfare scenarios of the times, making this a top pick for any military collection.
