Each book provides a full combat history of a fighter or bomber unit that earned particular distinction in action, in a text supported by eyewitness accounts. Aircraft profiles and scale drawings illustrate the machines they flew. Books in Osprey’s Aviation Elite Units series provide an authentic insight into World War II’s greatest units, celebrating the men and machines that won each unit its ‘elite’ status. The unsung heroes of each unit are identified, and their stories are told as well as those of their more glamorous ‘ace’ counterparts. Featuring at least 40 specially commissioned aircraft profile drawings per book, and illustrated throughout with contemporary black and white photographs, books in the Aviation Elite Units series are a valuable reference resource for military model makers, remote control model makers, and aviation history enthusiasts.
