Book Description

Following the enormous success of 'Aircraft of the Aces: Legends of World War 2', this book celebrates the achievements of some of the world's most remarkable Aces. Thirty full-colour paintings from Osprey's best selling Aircraft of the Aces series have been reproduced here for the first time, and new text by Aircraft of the Aces series editor Tony Holmes introduces the ace pilot featured in each painting and describes the action depicted. From World War I to Vietnam, this gripping and visually spectacular volume brings together some of the greatest and most daring feats in the history of military flight. Colour aircraft profiles and aircraft specifications complete each one of the book's thirty chapters.

J2M Raiden and N1K1/2 Shiden/Shiden-Kai Aces by Tony Holmes J2M Raiden and N1K1/2 Shiden/Shiden-Kai Aces, Paperback (April 2016)

Although seen as a replacement for the A6M Zero-sen carrier-based fighter, the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden was actually designed as a land-based naval interceptor optimised for speed rather than manoeuvrability. Despite suffering heavy losses, the units equipped with new fighter proved that the N1K could more than hold its own against P-38s and F6Fs.
