Format: Paperback
Another interesting title from Images of War series and another IoW book with same problems as most of the titles in this series suffer from. Un-informative captions and crap quality photos are the biggest problems with this book (and series). Most of the pictures in my copy are blurry, soft and way too light. One must wonder how this publisher keeps on turning out books of such low quality. With little effort this could have been a good read. 4 stars for the selection of photos, 1 star for the quality of photos.

The thought of rare photographs was enough to make me buy this book. Taking into account the age of the photos, the publisher can be forgiven for the poor quality. What can't be forgiven are the numerous mistakes in the captions associated with the photographs, the most glaring being the reference to aircraft being FE2b whereas they are most probably Avro 504! Possibly forgivable for a non-enthusiast is the confusion of Curtis JN4 for the same Avro 504. And so the list goes on.
The only redeeming items are the photographs of 2-seat Sopwith Camel Trainers -although one has to wonder if they are, in fact, what they purport to be!

unfortunately this book is full of obvious errors. page 27 shows a sopwith 1 1/2 strutter not a trainer sopwith camel. page 28 does not show the same aircraft as stated but a sopwith dolphin.page 37 shows the aircraft depicted on page 38 and not an avro 504 as stated.the worst error occurs on pages 106 to 110 inc. the aircraft shown are clearly tractor biplanes and therefore cannot be fe2b's as stated as these were pusher biplanes! a very basic error. I think this book should be withdrawn and corrected and anyone who bought a copy should either be refunded their money or offered a corrected copy. a great pity this as up to now pen & sword have usually produced very good books (I have bought quite a few over the years) but their reputation has now been somewhat damaged by this very poor effort.

One of the worst R.F.C.books I have ever had. Many photographs are NOT of the aicraft shown in the captions and I most certainly would not recommend buy it !

2.0 out of 5 stars Bill Scrivens 3 Sept. 2013
By GoldensToo@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Author (or editor) needs to take a remedial aircraft identification class. Consistently misidentifies Curtiss JN-4s as Avro 504s using British serial numbers instead of correct Canadian serial numbers. Other incorrect identifications - Gotha G V instead of Blackburn Kangaroo (pg. 24), Avro 504 instead of Bristol F.2b (pg. 25), "trainer version of Camel" instead of Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter (pg. 27), "second photo of same aircraft" (referring to picture of "trainer version of Camel") instead of Sopwith Dolphin (pg. 28) - list goes on and on. Author also incorrectly refers at least twice to United States Air Force (which did not come into being until 1947) instead of correct Aviation Section, U.S. Signal Corps. Quality of photos is addressed in the introduction (some very bleached out) but they are very interesting - too bad captions are also of such poor quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars They know not what they did. 29 Oct. 2015
By Jim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The best I can say is that this book does contain photos of the RFC (and RAF, RCAF) in WWI, some of which I see in this book for the first time. I cannot understand how the author and editors (if there were any) could so consistently misidentify the aircraft depicted, especially since the same aircraft are sometimes said to be different types ((SIA 7B as an Avro 504, then the next page correctly identified, JN-4s often as Avro 504s, Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter as a "trainer version of the Sopwith Camel" because it has " two cockpits." Most of the photos are not of aircraft, but personnel.

Two stars is generous.
