Présentation de l'éditeur

Flying aircraft such as the Macchi 200-202, Fiat G.50 and biplane Fiat CR.42, the Italian fighter pilots were recognised by their Allied counterparts as brave opponents blessed with sound flying abilities, but employing under-gunned and underpowered equipment. Following the Italian surrender in September 1943, a number of aces continued to take the fight to the Allies as part of the Luftwaffe-run ANR, which was equipped with far more potent equipment such as the Bf 109G, Macchi 205V and Fiat G.55. Flying these types, the handful of ANR squadrons continued to oppose Allied bombing raids on northern Italy until VE-Day.

Biographie de l'auteur

Giorgio Apostolo runs the leading Italian aviation publishing company GAE, and has become the recognised authority on the Regia Aeronautica during World War 2.

Italy's part in the air war during World War 2 is often overlooked and undervalued, especially in English- and German-language publications. Lire la première page

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid Info 25 février 2002
Par Stephen Fedor - Publié sur
That anything publishable would come out on this subject is a wonder. In this case, it took a supreme level of dedication by the authors to produce this volume. Many other reviewers have given it 5 stars, so I'll avoid repeating them.
The main virtue to me is the meticulous search for historical truth. Not easy, when facing incomplete official records that also were subject to shifts in method. The authors chose to go after ORIGINAL sources. While this limits their being complete (a bit much to expect in any ace study), what you do get has withstood their rigorous methodology: Brief ace profiles; an overview of Italian fighter operations; fresh photo illustrations; high quality a/c profiles -- that you can trust.
There isn't much in English on Italian air ops, nor aces. So this entry not only breaks new ground for English-speakers, it is as authoritative as the best of any in the Osprey series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Italian Aces of World War 2 23 janvier 2001
Par Karl Pople - Publié sur
A fascinating review of an often overlooked subject that is long overdue. I knew the Italian Air Force fought with bravery and tenacity during the war, but had no idea they had produced over 50 pilots who scored five or more victories! Not only do the authors, Giorgio Apostolo and Giovanni Massimello, give the reader an overview of the war, but also organization of the air force by wings (Stormos). A Stormo analysis consists of breakdowns by Gruppos (Groups) and Squadriglie (Squadrons). Also a Squadriglie by Squadriglie review of types flown, the Fiat G.50 and G.55, also the Fiat G.32 and G.42 series, the last biplanes flown in the war! And fighter types produced by Macchi and Reggiane. Tragically, we learn of the executions of pilots who flew "up north" for the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana, or ANR, by their fellow Italian citizens as reprisals after the war had ended because they had sided with Mussolini. The color profiles are superb, as we have come to expect from this series, 40 different fighters flown by the aces. My only complaint is the lack of color profiles concerning pilot uniforms and flying garb, but judging by the photos,(many never before seen), the Italian pilots wore whatever was comfortable for the theater of operations at the time. In closing, a "must have" for any modeller or historian!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 it was high time ! 9 janvier 2001
Par roberto rensi - Publié sur
Excellent addition to an excellent series. The Italian participation in air operations in WWII is all too often omitted or misrepresented. Italian records, especially about WWII aces, are extremely rare and incomplete, therefore comprehensive publications like this one are precious. The text provides a good and balanced overview of a very complex story; maybe more could have been said about the different theaters where the Regia Aereonautica fought and about specific combat experience. Nevertheless, the photos and drawings are very good. It will remain as a reference text.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Great Addition to the Aircraft of the Aces Series 5 décembre 2000
Par "bluewaterops" - Publié sur
Once again Osprey has ably filled in the history of the top Italian pilots that flew for the Axis (AND THE ALLIES) during World War II. Since many of the detailed records of the top Italian aces were destroyed or lost when the Italians joined the Allies in 1943, this book uses great personal interviews with the surviving members of the Italian Air Force to craft an accurate assessment of the top pilots and their aircraft. The pictures gathered from the personal collections of the pilots are unique and great source of reference for modellers. Also the artwork of the aircraft is as usual stunning.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It could have been better...but 26 juillet 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
I give this book 5 stars mainly because it addresses a subject rarely considered in English--Italy's military performance in WWII. It was a good, if sketchy, introduction to a fascinating and neglected part of the war. For every 1,000 books on the Wehrmacht there is one on the Italian armed forces. Yet Italian forces, poorly equipped, wretchedly led, with little motivation and without rational strategic leadership, fought well to the bitter end...though you would not know it from the vast bulk of literature on WWII. So I pay tribute to the authors, though I still wish for a real history of the Regia Aeronautica in the war, not just a skimpy recitation of its aces.
