OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 12: SPITFIRE MARK I/II ACES 1939-41

by Dr. Alfred Price. Illustrated by Keith Fretwell
 

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.

OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 18: HURRICANE ACES 1939-40

  by Tony Holmes. Illustrated by Keith Fretwell


The Hawker Hurricane was the RAF's first monoplane fighter, and it dragged the air force into a position where it could defend Britain in its 'hour of need'. Prior to the Battle of Britain, a number of squadrons equipped with the fighter had seen action firstly in the 'Phoney War', and then during the disastrous campaign in France. Pilots like 'Cobber' Kain had achieved impressive scores in the face of overwhelming LUftwaffe forces, and although the RAF lost no less than 386 Hurricanes during the Blitzkrieg, it gave many pilots valuable experience. Hawker fighters outnumbered Spitfires during the Battle of Britain by three to one, and downed far mor aircraft. Overseas, a handful of pilots put up stiff resistance against Germany's Italian ally in Libya and Egypt, and also over Malta.

RONALD BERRY: HULL'S SPITFIRE ACE

by Don Chester


Air Commodore Ronald "Ras" Berry was one of the RAF’s top fighter aces. Berry fought with the Royal Air Force throughout the war, starting with the Battle of Britain with No. 603 Squadron where he made his reputation as an excellent fighter pilot, shooting down three Messerschmitts in a day. His story is illustrated by numerous photos, mainly from Imperial War Museum collection, which include a formal portrait of Berry as Wing Commander in North Africa. Another image is of Berrys Spitfire Mk. IX, coded EN199, which has recently been restored by the Malta Aviation Museum at Ta’Qali
