"McCaffery tells of those forgotten flyers and their deeds with gripping prose... Hell Island is a most readable and valuable contribution to air accounts of those frantic times. Not only does McCaffery, a fine writer of air history, score with the account, he achieves a bulls-eye."

- Les Peate Esprit de Corps

"McCaffery goes beyond the Canadian involvement to provide a general account of the siege. Hell Island is recommended for budding enthusiasts of aerial combat literature."

- Cameron Pulsifer Canadian Book Review Annual

"McCaffery has carved out a place for himself as one of Canada's most successful authors of aviation history."

- Paul Morden Sarnia Observer
