A series of books written and illustrated by leading military aviation specialists, building into a connected history of the operations of the world's major combat air forces – the men, the missions, the machines, the markings.

 

What modeling madness is writing about the Airwar series : 

In 1968, Osprey started its publishing with the Arco-Aircam Aviation series. This ran into the early 1970's. Incorporating a basic text, many photos, and many color profiles, this series was readily accepted by modelers ; copies can still be found at used book shops, swap meets, and the like. Three years later, Osprey branched out into uniforms with its “Men-At-Arms”series which continues today and has recently reached Volume #375.

 

Osprey’s publications are familiar to most modelers and include the Vanguard, Elite Warrior, Aircraft of the Aces, Elite Units, Combat Units, and Essential Histories, to name a few. But one series is near and dear to many modelers’ hearts : the Airwar series, issued between 1977 & 1979. By the early 1980s, this series had virtually disappeared from dealers’ shelves. Long out-of-print, Osprey has now reprinted those 24 volumes. The authors list includes many experts in their respective fields.

A color art cover with useful detail (some of which were quite novel. #12, for example, has a color cover of a USAAF P-51 engaging Rumanian IAR 80's! )

Approx. 46 pp. of good text, with many, many good photos intermingled.

A center color section containing :

  1. drawings of flight crew & one ground support person ;
  2. 3 side views of assorted aircraft ;
  3. a color four-view of an aircraft ;
  4. detail drawings of unit insignia, nose art, personal markings, etc. ;
  5. a drawing of a piece of ground support equipment–jeep, staff car, ambulance, AA-mounting, bomb trailer, refueling truck, bulldozer, etc.

 

 

This book traces the combat history of British fighter units. Major aircraft types are all covered, and their missions detailed. Aircraft markings and aircrew uniforms are shown in full color illustrations.


Alex Revell has been interested in WWI aviation since the age of six, when he began reading the famous John Hamilton series of aviation classics. Other interests intervened in his teens, but he began serious aviation research in the early 1960s. Primarily interested in people and their role in the 1914-18 air war, he traced and interviewed many ex-members of the RFC/RAF/RNAS and is particulary proud that many of them became personal family friends. An internationally acknowledged researcher into the history of the RFC/RAF and RNAS during WWI, Alex Revell has had many articles published in specialist aviation magazines and the journals of Cross and Cockade International and The First World War Aviation Historical Society, of which he is a founder member. His has written a number of aviation-related WWI titles over the years. Alex Revell’s latest book, British Single-Seater Fighter Squadrons on The Western Front in WWI was recently awarded ‘Book of the Month’ in Aeroplane Monthly. A retired engineer and also a jazz musician of international repute, Alex Revell lives in Cornwall with his wife Linda and three Burmese cats.
