Book review by Gary Sheffield.
Above the Trenches - A Complete Record of the Fighter Aces and Units of the British Empire Air Forces 1915-20 first appeared in 1990 and was a mine of useful information.
This Supplement consists of more of the same: brief biographies of pilots omitted from the original book, plus other information that the indefatigable authors have unearthed in the intervening years. This was obviously a labour of love for the authors, and is a 'must' for aviation buffs.
