In the first of a two-part study covering all of the naval fighter pilots to achieve ace status during World War I, author and artist Jon Guttman examines the elite members of the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS). The first to employ Sopwith's excellent line of scouts, such as the Pup, Triplane and Camel, some of the RNAS pilots such as Raymond Collishaw, Robert A Little and Roderick Stanley Dallas rated amoung the most successful fighter pilots in the British Commonwealth. This book covers all of the members of the RNAS who 'made ace'. The Second Volume will cover the naval Aces from the other participants in the war.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is well recommended for modelers, aviation historians and people who enjoy combat stories. It is a great addition to the 'Aces' series and I am looking forward to Part II." --Clare Wentzel, IMPS

"Part 1 mainly focuses on Britiain's Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS), while Part 2 covers the remainder, including Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, Italy and Greece ... These new additions to the 'Aircraft of the Aces' series will offer enthusiasts and modelers a wide range of types and markings for future projects, Having watched Osprey's growing list of such works for more than 16 years, I can say that these two books are packed with the most fascinating details I have yet seen." --Peter B. Mersky, Aviation History (November 2012)

"Authoritative research and good presentation and an excellent selection of profiles brings this story of the Great War in the air to life. I highly recommend this book." --Frederick Boucher, AeroScale
