About the Author
Praise For Spitfire Aces of Burma and the Pacific…
"Spitfire Aces of Burma and the Pacific by Andrew Thomas provides a good look at Spitfires and their pilots in some of the less publicized actions of WWII... The book describes 54 aces through the usual Osprey blend of good text, archival photos, and well-rendered color profiles."
- Air Classics (September 2009)
"...a comprehensive history of the elite fighter pilots and the aircrafts that they flew. Andrew Thomas is one of Britain’s leading RAF researchers..."
"If you're looking for compact, convenient coverage of Spitfire operations against Imperial Japan, grab Thomas' book."
- David L. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com (May 2013)
"In addition to the usual superb collection of period photos, there are several pages of color profiles of the aircraft discussed in the book. The appendices include a full listing of men who were successful against the Japanese while flying the Spitfire as well as their tallies. In all, it is a book that should find a lot of interest with Spitfire fans in particular and those whose interest is in this theater of war in general. A great read that I know you will enjoy."
