Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 67 : Sopwith Pup Aces of World War 1

The Sopwith Pup was the forerunner of the hugely successful Sopwith Camel, which duly became the most successful fighter of World War 1. The first proper British fighting scout, the first Pups of the Royal Naval Air Service, arrived on the Western Front in 1916. The Sopwith Pup was regarded as a 'nice' aeroplane to fly and the pilots who used it in combat gained much success during the first half of 1917. From January 1917 onwards, The Royal Flying Corps also used the Pup. The final combats involving this machine occurring in December 1917. This book describes the combat careers of the successful Pup aces, how they flew and how they fought. Text by Norman Franks with illustrations by Harry Dempsey.
