Overview
 
Aircraft of the Aces 89. The Italian aces of WWI have gone down in history as the irrefutable masters of the skies in the battle against their Austro-Hungarian enemies. In this often forgotten theater of warfare these remarkable pilots gave the Italian forces an undisputed air superiority and left an enduring legacy as extraordinary men. Uncovers these fighters' incredible and sometimes tragic histories, and brings to life the exploits of such famous aces as Baracca, Ruffo and Piccio and the lesser known Riva, Sabelli and Nardini. Letters, diaries and unpublished photographs shed light on previously unknown personal and unit insignia while exposing many myths and setting the record straight. Includes appendices; 96 pages.
