The 100 Hour War


My copy of this paperback book on the Soccer War arrived in the post today, so I've had a quick flick through and will read it properly at the weekend. It is quite short but packed full of detailed information, cracking photos and some lovely colour profiles of the aircraft involved in the conflict between El Salvador and Honduras in July 1969. 

It's a gold mine of stuff for air wargaming and very much worth grabbing if you are interested, especially as it's an absolute bargain if you shop around a bit. I am absolutely chuffed with this book as you can probably work out by my enthusiastic review. There are several other interesting titles in Helion Publishing's Latin America@War series and somewhere over the horizon there will be a volume on the Alto Cenapa War too. Excellente!
