Legends of World War 2
Legends of World War 2 by Tony Holmes
Book DescriptionDevised by Tony Holmes in 1994, The Aircraft of the Aces is indisputably the most successful aviation series in Osprey's 30-year history. The globally acclaimed artwork of Iain Wyllie has appeared on the cover of each book, and these specially commissioned paintings have become a key ingredient to the series' success. In celebration of the aces of WWII, their aircraft, and the unique illustrations which have so unerringly captured them in action, Osprey has produced Aircraft of the Aces: Legends of World War 2. Thirty full-colour paintings from thirty Aces books are featured, with information about the actual aircraft depicted, their pilots, and the action in which they are involved. Contemporary black and white photography and colour profiles complete this unique and beautiful book.
