I am a great fan of Osprey publications and this one is no exception. It covered an area of aviation history that I was not familiar with. The mix of personal experiences, colour plates and period photos made this a great ref book for anyone interested in WW2 history or just the curious like myself, highly recommended.
I bought this book to help me trace the final location and moments of my namesake. This book not only helped me to take me a big step nearer to my personal goal but also taught me a great deal about the men and the aircraft, recomended reading.
Another fine work by Osprey but as ususally 96 pages aren't enough to explain all, and some info is dated by more recent discoveries. Also osprey fails to put authors not fully dedicate to the subject in writing such books, althought they do a very good job, the series could gain more if written by a somewhat more expert in the subject and by some more 200 pages, a nice book if you buy the entire collection, as they complement each others.
An excellent article of Allied pilots who flew the various variants of the Typhoon/Tempests fighter bombers. This book is dedicated to pilots who were able to attain status of Ace while flying Typhoons and Tempests.
