Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series combines full colour artwork, the best archival contemporary photography, and first hand accounts from aces to bring history's greatest airborne conflicts to life.
About the Author
Jerry Scutts has worked in the field of aviation publishing since the late 1960s, writing over 40 books that have covered a broad spectrum of subject matter ranging from US Navy floatplane fighters in World War 2 to the exploits of the USAF's Phantom IIs over Vietnam. His specialist areas are the Luftwaffe and the US Army Air Forces in World War 2, and he originally appeared on the Osprey list as long ago as 1977, when he wrote the second volume in the now much sought after Air Cam Air War series –- many of the jacket illustrations in this series were also painted by him. Jerry has been a regular contributor to Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series since its inception in 1994.

Eventually having to escape North Africa to Italy when the Allies landed in Operation `Torch', the Germans were pleased to have the Italians lend a hand (and protect their home land) in Italy, with such planes as the G.55, Mc.202/205s battling alongside the Bf-109s, the Germans held on at the MTO as long as they could. But with the Aliied landing of Sicily, then the surrender of Italy, the German units from Africa were now fighting in Germany.
The second book from Osprey, I found this book a worthy read. Jerry Scutts explains about the beginning of JG-27, then goes throughout the war of aces, places and planes. I liked the setup of this book. Pictures of the desert, aces and planes. Color plates of Bf-109s from the E class to the G, plus 6 pilot plates including, of course, Hans-Joachim Marseille.
There are 80 pages of facts I found very useful. There is 2 pages dedicated just to Marseille's record day! In all, I found this book well worth the cost.
