Legends of World War 2 by Tony Holmes

Book Description

Devised 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.

Books By Author Tony Holmes

War Over the Steppes by Tony Holmes War Over the Steppes, Hardback (October 2016)

This titanic clash between the pilots of the Third Reich and the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1945 remains one of the greatest conflicts in modern history.

Spitfire by Tony Holmes Spitfire, Hardback (May 2016)

In the year that the Spitfire turns 80, passion for the RAF's best-loved fighter is running at an all-time high. This book reveals the history of the most iconic of British aircraft. It is suitable for aviation enthusiasts.

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.

Harrier by Tony Holmes Harrier, Paperback (February 2016)

A comprehensive and compelling guide to one of the most popular wartime planes.
