This is the fourth in a series of books published by Grub Street on the air aces of World War I, and is the culmination of the work done by Norman Franks and Russell Guest on the British two-seater bomber pilot and observer aces, along with the addition of Gregory Alegi to the group, so that the Italian aces are finally included, including the biographies and scores of the Italians pitted against the Austro - Hungarian and german airmen above the Piave and Alpine regions of Northern Italy and the details of the Russian and Belgian aces. This final book in the series makes the series a truly complete record of all the known aces of the Great War of 1914 - 1918.
It is a hardcover volume with its original dust jacket, which is encased in a nice this plastic cover to protect it. The cover is red cloth with gold gilt writing and the dust jacket has protected it well over the years. It retains its original price tag on the back of the dust jacket of $47.95 and is in good condition, with a strong binding and tight pages. It includes black and white glossy illustrations of photos of some of the aces in the center. The pages are free of writing and there is minor foxing inside the front cover and on the page edges, which is visible only when the pages are shut. The publisher is Grub Street of London, 1997. This is a nice find for the collector and a great work for those interested in the stats and the biographical details of the World War One Aces. This would be a great addition to your library or collection.
