Sopwith Camel Aces of World War 1, Paperback

Sopwith Camel Aces of World War 1 Paperback

Illustrated by Harry Dempsey

Part of the Osprey Aircraft of the Aces S. series


Responsible for destroying 1294 enemy aircraft between June 1917 and November 1918, the Camel was the most successful fighting scout employed by either side in terms of the sheer number of victories that it scored.

The Camel was renowned for its sensitivity and need for skill and experience, and casualties amongst pilots undergoing training on the type were very high.

More than 5490 examples were constructed, and this work covers its combat use on the Western Front, in Palestine, on the Italian front, in the Home Defence role in the UK and in Russia.
