Aircraft of the Aces - Legends of the Skies by Tony Holmes

Aircraft of the Aces - Legends of the Skies

Author: Tony Holmes
New copy
Publisher: Osprey Publishing

Size: 9.5 x 11 inches
Hardback - First Edition
Voucher value: 15

This book is a follow up to Osprey’s highly successful ‘Aircraft of the Aces - Legends of World War 2’. It follows the same format in that it uses the cover artwork of their well known Aircraft of the Aces book series as the cornerstone of its illustrations. This time however Iain Wyllie is joined by renowned artist Mark Postlethwaite (and for a couple of the paintings Keith Woodcock) plus several other artists who have contributed aircraft side profiles. This volume showcases 33 paintings, each being used to help tell the story of a particular aviation Ace spanning World War I to the Yom Kippur War.

A full review can be found in the Book Review section of the site under Themed Books.
