"Hunting for hidden treasures has always had wide appeal, but Nicholas A. Veronico brings entirely new dimensions to the genre. He provides in fascinating detail the past, present, and future of a number of great subjects and fascinating vintage airplanes rescued from locations such as the English Channel, a frozen lake in Norway, and more. Hidden Warbirds II is a fundamental contribution to aviation history, well researched and well written, as easy to read as a novel, and absolutely loaded with facts." - Walter J. Boyne, USAF (ret.), author/historian and former director, Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum
