Description
A richly illustrated history of over 55 of World War II’s greatest combat pilots and flying aces, sure to thrill aviation enthusiasts and history buffs alike. Profiling the men and women who fought in the skies above Europe, North Africa and the Pacific on both sides of the conflict. From the iconic names of the RAF’s Douglas Bader and ‘Johnnie’ Johnson to many less familiar but equally fearsome fliers, including pilots from the USAAF, British Commonwealth, Germany, Soviet Union, Poland, Japan and other Allied and Axis forces. With atmospheric photographs, the fascinating profiles give a privileged glimpse into life in the cockpit. This poignant record captures the skill, bravery and daring demanded of young pilots of the Second World War.
