Coincidentally, this latest offering in the Osprey series arrived at the same time. It is the usual very concise general overview of its subject, complete with many excellent photographs and colour plates by Harry Dempsey. I never stop being impressed with the amount of information contained in these books. There are two pictures of Lanoe Hawker, and many mentions of him in the text, but he is missing from the List of Aces at the end of the book. Nevertheless, this is a good starter for the serious student, but not in the same league as the Society’s offering!
