French fighter pilots inflicted more than half the losses suffered by the German air service in the Great War, and the French aces accounted for nearly half of those. Based on extensive research, noted French aviation historian David Méchin has documented the personal stories of these aces in the French Aviation Aces Encyclopedia with text, photos, detailed victory tables, and color profiles. Those stories are told in depth for the first time in English in this landmark series of books. Volume 8 tells the stories of 20 aces from Paul Santelli to Pierre Wertheimer, and includes one of the most effective French aces, Paul Tarascon, with 401 photos, 14 in color, 11 color graphics, and 48 color profiles in its 298 pages. It also covers 4 pilots who are special cases, such as pre-war pilots Eugène Gilbert and Célestin Pégoud, and two more aces who became aces after combat in two wars.
