The Blue Devils : U. S. Navy and Marine Corps Aces of the World War I. Navy and Marine Corps Aces of the World War II. by Mark Styling and Barrett Tillman. When America was plunged into war in the wake of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the first aircraft to take the fight to the Japanese were manned by naval aviators flying from Pacific Fleet aircraft carriers that had miraculously escaped the carnage in Hawaii. Escorting bombers attacking the Imperial Japanese Navy, a handful of Wildcats succeeded in fending off attacks by the superior A6M Zero-sen fighter.

As a painter of flight simulator aircraft, this book helped find correct painting and markings on WWII birds. Also I was able to use a lot of the statistics listed through out the book, as well as squadron data on featured squadrons. Very informative.
Osprey Publishing occasionally slaps together several related titles, puts them in hardcover format and comes up with a new title. BLUE DEVILS is one such title, being a combination of WILDCAT ACES OF WORLD WAR 2, HELLCAT ACES OF WORLD WAR 2 and CORSAIR ACES OF WORLD WAR 2. The first two were done by Barrett Tillman in 1995 and '96; the last by Mark Styling in 1995.

I have mixed feeling about Osprey's strategy. I have no qualms in recommending ANY book by Barrett Tillman; he's simply one of our finest military aviation authors. Likewise Mark Styling, who's also a talented artist, has turned in some fine efforts. And, yes, it's nice to have all three titles under one cover.

However, since I already have all three books in paperback, I don't have a burning desire to shell out more money for this 'three-fer' conglomeration. Aside from that, the book drops Mark Postlewaite's great cover artwork! Also, the continuity within BLUE DEVILS would have been improved if they had run the F4F and F6F volumes sequentially rather than F4F, F4U, F6F.

So, if you don't own any of the titles, by all means, buy BLUE DEVILS. All three books are solid, well-researched, well-written and nicely-illustrated histories of USN/USMC aces. If you already own the books, you can pass on this one.

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, this is a combination of three prior Osprey titles on the F4F, F6F, and F4U. Much of the text is by Barrett Tillman, one of the better authors contributing to the Osprey series. Although this combined volume's title indicates that it focuses on U.S. naval aviation, the coverage inside retains information on each aircraft in Fleet Air Arm service, in enough detail that the title's "U.S. Navy and Marine Corps" emphasis isn't really accurate. The profiles are hit-or-miss; neither illustrator working on the F4U got the profile of the aircraft correct (note the canopies and cowl cooling vents compared to the various photos).
