Considering the premiere role and length of service of the F-15 Eagle, it is perhaps surprising that it appears as late as title number 183 in the Squadron/Signal "In Action" series.

F-15 Eagle in Action tackles the challenging task of covering all variants and operators of this Air Superiority Fighter in its 50 pages.

This book follows Squadron/Signal’s popular “In Action” format with Don Greer cover art, two colour pages with ten profiles as a “centrefold”, helpful line drawings and specifications spread over 50 pages in landscape format. As with the rest of the series, the real backbone of these books are the multitude of photographs - in this case more than 110 - packed between the covers. These photos are captioned in detail, and essentially tell the story of the F-15.

Although the F-15 Eagle could hardly be accused of too much variety of camouflage and markings, the author has managed to find plenty of variety as some relief from the expanse of grey. These include prototypes, commemorative aircraft and foreign operators.





The "In Action" series continues to provide low-cost primers to a wide range of aircraft subjects. As someone who does not have any dedicated F-15 books, I welcome "F-15 Eagle In Action" as my first reference source on this type.

"F-15 In Action" will be especially useful as an introduction to the F-15 family of fighters.


Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
