This publication is in soft cover and is a full black and white, and colour glossy publication in standard soft cover A4 format.  It covers the complete story of the Avenger in service with the Royal Netherland Navy.

This book contains 36 pages with at least 52 rare black and white, and 12 colour photographs.  The quality of some of the photographs is sometimes is a bit grainy and I am guessing that some of these came from private photograph collections. Also include is 15 colour profiles depicting the colour schemes used while in service.
Throughout the book the aircraft is depicted throughout its service and many configurations and colour schemes.

One of the final pages provides a brief summary of the service and fate of each and every Avenger in Royal Dutch Navy Service.

This is an excellent publication on the Avenger in the service of the Royal Dutch Navy, and it compliments perfectly the Dutch Decals sheets 1/72 scale DDPS7072 and 1/48 scale DDPS7048 Royal Netherlands Naval Air Service TBM Avenger.
