Product Description

Review

"This book is yet again what one comes to expect from the Osprey "Aces" series. A well-written narrative of this particular part of the War, interspersed with many stories about individual aces (many in their own words). All this is complemented by nicely-done color plates, lots of good photos, and a few useful appendices." --IPMS/USA

I really enjoy reading the Osprey books as they provide an excellent source of information for amateur historian such as myself. Even better now that many titles are available on Kindle

Lots of interesting information for Supermarine Spitfire afficionados and potential colour schemes for flight sim skinners

Great detail but poorly written, appearing to have been taking piecemeal from pilot logs.

Well, usually I don't write reviews... ...but this one forced me to.
The 3 Stars I give are for the profiles and the accumulated stats for the pilots who flwew the "Spit" in hte last year of the war...
...but... The Narrative is VERY exhausting ins repetive and exhausting phraqses "firing a one second, two second etc. burst into the enemy planes which srashed/cartwheeled/turned on over it's back and crashed into the ground etc.". I am german and very much able to understand and to read in english and I also have got a big library, partly filled with english-language releases (much Osprey also). What annoys much more is, that all the accounts were given approx. 90% one-sided. Means "On this morning this pilot or Sqn. despatched 3, 7, 13 enemy planes etc." but there are very hardly to find any "againsts". Also I only can find the "Aces"-List". What about the comperative LOSSES to get any insight about the equality of the fighting. I just found VERY few releations which is on one side a pity, but on the other side also makes you feel like reading a "Hero"-like pamphlet. Next thing is; what annoys me pretty much is the scrapping by of the so called "aces". Pilots who got 3 own destructions plus fired some shots into 4 other planes were made aces... In the Luftwaffe at that time, those kind of pilots were mere newbies who flew from no 6- 12-coded planes but not leading squadrons at all etc. The were DOZENS of german aces who had 50+x confirmed vics onthe western front (or the mid or NA) and nobody even knows their names today... Of course there were really notable late war pilots like Johnson or also Beurling or even Plagis. But not that many and none came even close the "50" (not 5!).
