The Air VCs
| Total Clicks: 2832 | Report Broken Link |
(VCs of the First World War)
by Peter J. Cooksley
Hardcover: 204 pages
Publisher: Alan Sutton Publishing, Ltd. (February 1998)
Language: English
ISBN: 075091212X

Of more than 600 Victoria Crosses awarded to British and Empire servicemen during the First World War, nineteen were awarded to airmen of the newly formed Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service. Of these, four were posthumous awards and all but one of the total were to officers. Some of these valorous airmen were from humble backgrounds and with limited education, others were collegiate men from wealthy families, but in the words of one senior officer they all had in common 'the guts of a lion'. The aircraft they flew were as varied as their individual character and social background, ranging from the BE2 and Morane 'L', to the SE5 and Nieuport Scout. The Air VCs continues the established style of Sutton Publishing's successful 'VCs of the First World War' series and provides fascinating insights into the lives of these bravest of the brave, and of the circumstances in which they won their country's highest award for valour.

Volume II on the German Navy & Central Power Air Services. Another First. The FIRST book to cover in detail the Imperial German Navy and Central Powers (Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman Turkish, and Bulgarian Air Service) flight training requirements, flight badge award criteria as well as badge construction details. The book provides exact information on how to identify the many fake badges on the market and gives information on the firms that produced these rare badges. A must for the serious WWI German aviation and Central Powers collector or historian. This is the follow on and matching book to Volume I on the Imperial German Army Flight Badges and Commemorative Airship Badges which was another first and has done extremely well with collectors. Do not buy another badge until you read these books.
