Books get recognition through reviews.  Aviation History has earned this attention:  

"Aviation History
is without peer or competition.  Any book that can bring aviation history to life the way this one does deserves to be described with superlatives."  — Barry Schiff, AOPA Pilot

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics awarded its 2003 Gardner-Lasser Aerospace History Literature Award recognizing Aviation History as “the best original contribution to the field of aeronautical or astronautical historical non-fiction literature published in the last five years.”

The Society for Technical Communications recognized Aviation History with four awards:  Award of Excellence for books, two Awards of Distinguished for cover design and for manual/book design, and Best of Show Award for manual/book design, at the Rocky Mountain Chapter's Technical Art, Publications, & Online Competition.

"Chronicling mankind's journey from dreaming about flight to achieving and developing it is a daunting task in one book, but Anne Millbrooke, a pilot and historian who specializes in science and technology, accomplished this challenging feat in Aviation History."  — Chad Trautvetter, Aviation International News

"The author supplies an in-depth analysis of various aspects of aviation often glossed over in aviation books."  — Nanette Scarpellini, Journal of Air Transportation

Aviation History
"is an informative, intelligently structured, and highly readable overview of the science, technology, and art of flight.  The book is valuable as both a textbook and a ready reference source for novices and experts alike."  — Paul Lagasse, H-Net (Humanities and Social Sciences Online Network)
