Aircraft versus Aircraft by Norman Franks  
about:   Although the text and photos are great, it's the "diagrammatic paintings" that are the heart of this book. They clearly illustrate many of the great battles and aircraft match-ups from WW1 to the Gulf War (showing the set-up and maneuvers in an easily understood format). Very educational and nicely written as well.

about:   Bill McGuire wrote: ""This book tells the story of the 8th Air Force mission to Friedrichshafen, Germany of March 18, 1944, in which the 392nd BG lost 14 Liberators. Specifically, it is also about my Navigator dad's final hours, and how I first came to learn the details in the mid-1990s, secure his files, interview surviving vets and visit his old base in England, his burial place at St. Avold, France and the crash site in southwestern Germany (for his plane and two additional heavies.)

Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero versus B-24 Mitchell  
about:   Something about the lighting and rendering in this sim just blows my mind -- although European Air War is very "painterly" (as you said in the museum, like flying in a Robert Taylor painting), Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 is approaching photo-realism.
