Format: Paperback
This volume from the Battleground Europe series provides details on the airfields and airmen of all protagonists associated with the great battle of the Somme, one of the more pivotal moments in WWI aviation history! As in other volumes from this series, author Michael O'Connor tells the story of airmen and their battles and final resting place. If you cannot go to France and study the aviation "battlefield" of the Somme, this book is the next best thing! I find the complete series to be exciting and essential history for any WWI aviation enthusiast! Here are links to the other books: AIRFIELDS AND AIRMEN OF THE CHANNEL COAST (Battleground Europe) AIRFIELDS AND AIRMEN : YPRES (Battleground Europe) Airfields & Airmen of Arras (Battleground Europe) and Airfields & Airmen: Cambrai (Battleground Europe). Michael O'Connor also has a special volume dedicated to the "Red Baron" Manfred von Richthofen that is also excellent! In the Footsteps of the Red Baron (Battleground Europe). These books are essential for any serious WWI aviation scholar!
