Aviation Elite Units

Aviation Elite Units books provide a full combat history of a fighter or bomber unit that earned particular distinction in action, providing an authentic insight into the world’s greatest units, celebrating the men and machines that won each unit its ‘elite’ status. In a text supported by eyewitness accounts, the unsung heroes of each unit are identified and their stories told – alongside the tales of their more glamorous ‘ace’ counterparts.

Featuring at least 30 specially commissioned aircraft profile drawings and illustrated throughout with contemporary black and white photographs, Aviation Elite Units series are a valuable reference resource for military model makers, remote control model makers, and aviation history enthusiasts.
