The author...did a great job narrating the stories of Griffon Spitfire pilots... The stories were backed up with well-researched technical materials as well, providing information on the Griffon Spitfire fighters which allowed the pilots to engage in the actions told in the book. Like most Osprey books, there were many rare photographs and detailed illustrations that would satisfy even the most demanding Spitfire modelers. Griffon Spitfire Aces is a great look for the fans of WW2-era aircraft and aerial combat.

This book details those aces in the usual Osprey manner, with lots of personal accounts to go along with the chronological history. There are plenty of photos to complement the text, and the color profile illustrations highlight the colors and markings of various ace's aircraft.
Chris BanyaiReipl, Internet Modeler (May 2008)
The aircraft, according to the author (who is currently on active duty with the RAF)...played major roles after the war in the conflicts in Malaya and Palestine. First-hand stories from the cockpit, previously unseen photographs, and profiles of Spitfire aces complete this account of the most powerful Spitfire variant ever built.

Overall, this is a superb book and one that Spitfire fans and modelers alike will find invaluable. As with all Osprey titles, one that I can highly recommend and one you can purchase with confidence.
