Our customer reviews This book is clearly not titled "Hungarian and Bulgarian Aces of World War 2" as anyone who bothers to look at the accompanying cover image can plainly see. This Osprey Aircraft of the Aces series book covers the Hungarians only. Buy this book expecting to read about the Bulgarian aces and you will be sorely disappointed.

Osprey Aircraft of the Aces series number Seller Inventory SKU Language: English. Brand new Book. Hungary's air arm grew up in secret during the s, as the country was forbidden from building its own airforce following the defeat of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in World War 1. In June , Hungarian pilots joined Germany in the invasion of Russia where they fought on until Bulgaria, on the other hand, never declared war on Russia, although it supported German efforts in Yugoslavia and Greece by declaring war on the Western Allies.
From late through to mid Bulgarian pilots attempted to defend industrial and military sites from American bombers, but by July the Bulgarian armed forces had surrendered to the Russians. This book commemorates the 20 aces who hailed from Hungary and Bulgaria.
