This book celebrates the achievements of some of the world’s most remarkable Aces. Thirty full-colour paintings from Osprey’s best selling Aircraft of the Aces series have been reproduced here for the first time, and new text by Aircraft of the Aces series editor Tony Holmes introduces the ace pilot featured in each painting and describes the action depicted. From World War I to Vietnam, this gripping and visually spectacular volume brings together some of the greatest and most daring feats in the history of military flight. Colour aircraft profiles and aircraft specifications complete each one of the book’s thirty chapters.
The book has two exclusive bookplates which include the following signatures: Neville Duke, Bob Doe, Tom Neil, Ron Pottinger, Bob Foster, Michael Cwynar, Peter Ayherst, Jack Storey, John Surmann, James Edwards, Jack Rae, Gunther Rall, Jakko Hillo, Joe McGraw, James Luma, Oscar Boesch, Buds Anderson, Mike Gladych, Don Bryan, Kyosti Karhilla and Don Strait.
