Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 44 : Gloster Gladiator Aces

Never before has a single book been published devoted exclusively to the intrepid, and disparate, band of pilots who could claim to be Gladiator aces. Flying the ultimate British biplane fighter, pilots in China, Finland, East Africa, North Africa, Western Europe, the Mediterranean, Norway and the Middle East all scored the prerequisite five kills to become aces. The first individuals to do so were fighting marauding Japanese fighters and bombers attacking targets in China in 1938. Future RAF aces such as Sheen, Tuck and Carey will also be featured in this book during their 'peacetime' flying in the final years leading up to World War 2, for most early-war aces 'cut their teeth' in Fighter Command on the Gladiator. Text by Andrew Thomas with illustrations by John Weal.
