A superb reference book for all collectors of, or with interest in, Regia Aeronautica, Aviazione Legionaria and Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana.

There are period photos of the everyday life, and adventures of pilots and personnel on a variety of war fronts and campaigns. In addition, there are images of aircraft in detail as well as candid photos of aces such as, Italo Balbo and high profile figures such as German Knight's Cross recipient Italian General Giovanni Messe. Furthermore, the colour gallery contains previously unpublished images of period Italian Air Force headdress, uniform and accoutrements, all from private collections, so an ivaluable refrence aid to collectors.

The book and dust jacket, whilst technically second hand, is in what appears to be unread condition. Published in 2009 the current retail price from publishers Schiffer books is $70.00 or £56.00 and second hand copies on Amazon are £43.00 We are offering rather better value here! We have just this one copy available and when it is gone it is gone.
