Osprey Special Editions (Aviation) : Aircraft of the Aces : Legends of the Skies

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 book 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. Text by Tony Holmes with illustrations by Iain Wyllie and Mark Postlethwaite.
