    Two late comers to the RAF, the Typhoon had many problems in service early. It became a deadly low-level fighter-bomber, I think it was the RAF equivalent of the fighter-bomber P-47 of the USAAF. Between the two, German tanks, vehicles, and troop convoys were given no rest from the Allied air forces in the European combat theater.

    Excellent! Plenty of info on the pilots and planes, situations they encountered, and war records. One Wing Co. had 2 Tempests at his private mounts! Even detailed scale plans are included.{1/72nd} Very happy I purchased this.

  • By Sonny Burnett on November 28, 2010

    Osprey books are great photo albums but they aren't the story telling kind of book I was expecting. That was my mistake. They do have a small amount of storie relating to each pilot but very short in nature.If your looking for storie's about missions throughout a pilot's tour or the war these are probably not what your looking for. They tend to follow an aircraft's war career instead of the pilots.But again nice photo's.

  • By A customer on December 8, 1999

    Inside this series approach, this book is very good. Chris THomas did a marvellous job. I only missed an explanation for tha confirmed kills of Pierre CLostermann who, in his book "THE BIG SHOW", tells that he has 33 victories, but RAF only gives him 11 (a very wide gap! )

  • By peter trisonic on January 30, 2015

    Very good - compliments the new 1/24 scale model from Airfix I have to build!

  • By D. P. Broer on June 26, 2002

    It's common practice to pack these planes together - Typhoon and Tempest at War, Typhoon and Tempest in Action, - and so now the exploits of the Typhoon and Tempest Aces. And they are listed all, including Mr. Pierre Closterman with just 11 kills, as the other reviewer already noticed. Makes you long for "French Aces", doesn't it? But Mr. Closterman does get mentioned on pages 69 and 70, and you get a photograph of him and his plane as well.What I especially liked, apart from the pilot stories, was the the last part of the book with the bibliography on page 96, the explanation that goes with the forty superb colour plates and the scale drawings of the various Typhoon versions - the Typhoon was well known for the teething problems in the first versions which gets a nice coverage - culminating into the beautifull sleek Tempest.
