I was disappointed that 'Spitfire mark I/II aces' was based more on the plane and the upgrades it went through than the aces that flew them. There is 75% information on the M. /II and the improvements that it underwent and 25% information on the aces. But the book does have a few aces such as George 'Grumpy' Unwin, Desmond Sheen and more.

Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series combines full colour artwork, the best archival . The last chapter gives an operational biography of the top 12 Spitfire Mk V aces. The text is well illustrated with colour paintings, scale drawings and a large number of rarely seen b/w photos

Ex-RAF aircrew, Dr. Alfred Price works as an aviation author and defence analyst. The text is well illustrated with colour paintings, scale drawings and a large number of rarely seen b/w photos. The 12 pages of colour paintings depicts individual aces aircraft in profile and ace pilots in flying gear. I was disappointed by the lack of an index and ce.

Initially produced in haste to combat the arrival of new German fighters (the Bf 109F and the Fw 190) on the Channel front, the Mk V had been created simply by pairing a Mk I or II fuselage with the new Merlin 45 engine - so successfully that some 6479 airframes were eventually built.

Spitfire Mk Is and IIs served only briefly in the frontline with the RAF, but their pilots were responsible for achieving impressive scores against the Luftwaffe during 1940/41. This volume details the RAF's first aces of World War 2 who helped stem the German tide during Britain's struggle for survival in the bitter years between 1939 and 1941. Early-mark Spitfires were notorious for their light armament, overheating engines and short range, but during the dogfights over Dunkirk and south-east England, then the first tentative sweeps across France, many pilots achieved scores of note.

As always with Osprey, an excellent book filled with a lot of information and explanations of day to day warfare in the air.

Giving up the obsolescent Gladiators, Furies ect. in '40-41, the pilots began training in the newer and more advanced airplane, the Spitfire. The first Spitfires to enter service early in the war had their shortcomings, such as range, armor and hard hitting armament (even though the 8 .303 cal. stayed with the fighter for most of the war). The pilots of the new plane ued their planes hard against the Germans during BoB (Battle of Britain).

I was disappointed that 'Spitfire mark I/II aces' was based more on the plane and the upgrades it went through than the aces that flew them. There is 75% information on the Mk.I/II and the improvements that it underwent and 25% information on the aces. I would recommend this book for someone who wants to read more about the plane than the aces.
But the book does have a few aces such as George 'Grumpy' Unwin, Desmond Sheen and more.

Very helpful and informative book about the Spitfire Aces of the time period. Excellent resource. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the subject.

EXCELLENT OVERVIEW OF EARLY SPITFIRE OPERATIONS. AN EXCELLENT ADDITION TO THE OSPREY ACES SERIES.ONE IMPROVEMENT WOULD BE AN APPENDIX LISTING THE PILOTS AND THIER SCORES IN THESE AIRCRAFT.

Alfred Price is the doyen of Spitfire authors, having published at least a dozen books on the aircraft, so it was probably hard for him to come up with new angles to cover. In this book he succeeds admirably, covering the combat use of the first two versions of the Spitfire, and giving brief bios of several important aces who flew the aircraft. Price covers both the build-up to the Battle of Britain, and the Spitfire's important part in that epic struggle. Best of all is the visual material. Among the many photos of pilots and aircraft are several I haven't seen before. There are forty well executed color side profiles of aces' Spitfires; although the Dark Green and Dark Earth color schemes of most of the aircraft can get a bit boring, they are an invaluable aid, particularly to modelers. A fine job.

Most of the Ospery titles have been very good. But this one was lacking something. It needed to cover more of the pilots who flew the planes rather than the plane. There were some BOB aces that weren't mention who did quite well.
The Ospery series is one of the best available, and well worth looking up. This book though doesn't cover the aces well enough.
The Hurricane Aces 39/40 book was superior to the Spitfire Mark I/II Aces. The Hurricane Aces book has more pages and there was more emphasis on the aces particulary about how many aces were kiled and/or wounded. There was too much technical data on the Spitfire and one chapter was totally to two of the Spitfire aces. Should have been more information about how many Spitfire Aces there were and how many were killed or wounded during 1939/41 period.
