No one writes about air combat as well as Eric Hammel, he has a gift for taking the reader right into the cockpit, where they can feel the adrenaline and sweat.

In his Aces series, he has collected the first-person accounts of WWII Aces, while providing the historical context for each story. In the first volume he presents the stories of 40 Pacific Aces.

These books helped ignite my love of Military History. A must read for anyone interested in air combat.
