5.0 out of 5 stars The magnificent men and their flying machines in WW2, 28 July 2002

This review is from: Gloster Gladiator Aces (Osprey Aircraft of the Aces) (Paperback)
Compared to it's successors, the Hurricane and the Spitfire, the Gloster Gladiator hasn't been much published. This book shows that this plane deserves far more than it got attention-wise. Quite a few of the great names (amongst them British "Ace of Aces", St. J. Pattle) flew Gladiators, the RAF's last fighting biplane and one of the best ever produced. This is a distinction that only the Italian Fiat Cr42 could hope to match as you learn in this book, one of the few about this plane since the classic "The Gloster Gladiator" from Francis K. Mason in 1964, which set the standard about publishing this plane for the last 38 years. This year not only saw this book by Andrew Thomas -which focuses mainly on the men who flew the Gladiator-, but a book by Alex Crawford as well, with a focus on the Gladiator itself...
