5.0 out of 5 stars Osprey's Croatian Aces of WW2, June 7, 2003
This review is from: Croatian Aces of World War 2 (Osprey Aircraft of the Aces, 49) (Paperback)
One of the latest in Osprey's "Aircraft of the Aces" series, this is the first English language work that I have come across that deals in detail with the exploits of Croatian fighter pilots in WW2.
I think that the authors have made excellent use of a large and wide variety of published sources, as well as much unpublished material and eye-witness accounts from the families of the airmen in question.
The text begins with the Royal Yugoslav Air Force and its fight with the Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica in 1941, moves on to cover the independent pro-axis state of Croatia and its volunteer "legion" fighter unit, 15/(Kroat)./JG 52 on the Eastern Front 1942-44 and back on home soil in 1944-45, attempting to defend Croatia in a motley collection of French, Italian and German fighters. It finishes with a "Hall of Fame" detailing the 21 Croatian pilots who achieved "Ace" status.
I was particularly fascinated by the many newly related first-hand accounts of battle, both in Russia and over Croatia.
Also, the 8 pages of new colour profiles and over 100 photos sourced in Croatia serve to complete what I found to be an excellent, most comprehensive look at this "forgotten" Axis air force.
