Another book in the very popular Images of War Series, this time looking at the ‘Aces’ of the Great War from 1916 to 1918.

A very affordable volume with many remarkable images of war.
The outstanding Lynx has reached retirement age and is being replaced in RN service by the ‘super’ Lynx under its new name Wildcat. That speaks volumes for the ability of the Lynx.

All you need to know about a great aircraft, very highly recommended.
