Allied Fighter Aces
I've just finished reading this paperback which I picked up for £3 in the local Oxfam bookshop. It was in pristine condition so a bit of a bargain. It turned out to be a very good read too, although it didn't last that long and was a bit on the light side.
However, as a general overview of the development of fighter tactics from the Allied perspective, it was a jolly good read. It reminded me of the book written by Johnnie Johnson 'The Story of Air Fighting' which I read years ago.
There's another book in the series which deals with Luftwaffe Fighter Aces, so I'll have to keep a look out on ebay for that one too. If you're looking for a good place to start when it comes to WW2 air warfare, then you can't go far wrong with this one.
