Reviews

"The Republican side of this aerial confl ict is well researched and told by Rafael A. Permuy Lopez, the deputy director of the magazine Ares Enalyus [Military History]. As with other titles in Osprey's 'Aircraft of the Aces' series, Spanish Republican Aces is nicely illustrated and made more complete by Julio Lopez Caeiro's 24 color profiles. It is recommended." --P.K., Over the Front (Winter 2012)"Spanish Republican Aces perfectly complements OSPREY's Aces of the Legion Condor (Aces 99) and Fiat CR.32 Aces of the Spanish Civil War (Aces 94) ... Robustly recommended." --David L. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com"...a fascinating look into a subject for which there has been little written. A book that I know you will find as interesting a read as did I." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
