It is now more than 40 years since Fighters over the Desert was published, and nearly as long since this was followed by Fighters over Tunisia. Both volumes have long been out of print and collectors' items, but, despite much prompting, Christopher Shores has resolutely refused to permit their reprinting until he amassed so much more information. He has also long nursed a desire to expand the coverage to encompass the operations of the other types of aircraft involved in this interesting and important theater of war - the bombers, reconnaissance aircraft and maritime units.

British and Empire Aces of World War I by Christopher F Shores( Book )

"At the outset of World War 1 the British had some 110 assorted aircraft, used mostly in the visual reconnaissance role. With the advent of faster and more agile single-seaters, the Allies and their adversaries raced to outdo each other in the creation of genuinely effective fighters with fixed forward-firing machine gun armament. It was not until 1917 that the British developed a truly effective interrupter gear, which paved the way for excellent single seaters such as the Sopwith Camel and the RAF S.E.5, later joined by the Bristol F.2B - the war's best two-seater fighter. This volume traces the rapid development of the fighter in World War 1 and the amazing exploits of the British and Empire aces who flew them."--Back cover
