Two of the most important airplanes used by the Italian Air Force, from the mid-fifties to the early seventies, are the subject of this monograph. 

The F-84F and RF-84F are the assets that introduced the use of atomic weapons in Italy and allowed the formation and development of aerial reconnaissance. Both Republic fighters served in the "golden age" of the Air Force, when the numbers of available aircraft were such as to require the establishment of large departments, the Aerobrigate, to manage large quantities of airplanes and personnel. In addition, the Thunderstreak was used by two of the most famous Aerobatic Patrols formed by departments of the Air Force before the establishment of the Frecce Tricolori, the Red Devils, and the Thundering Jets, told in two dedicated chapters. 

This is a fascinating story that will not fail to thrill readers.

"What makes this book stand out are the photos. They are large, well lit, and very nicely positioned. They very much show off the individual unit markings and these are accompanied by full color profiles of the units involved."
