Sopwith Camel - Jon Guttman. When the average person hears about World War I in the air, among the first names that come readily to mind is ‘Sopwith Camel’. Its iconic status may be somewhat exaggerated, but there is no question that the Camel was among the most produced, versatile and ubiquitous combat aeroplanes of its time, serving over land and sea from England to Mesopotamia, as well as post-war Russia.

A British icon of World War I aerial combat, just as the Supermarine Spitfire is for World War II, the Sopwith Camel might more aptly be compared to the equally iconic (if one is Japanese) Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero. A superb dogfighter in the hands of pilots who mastered its vicious idiosyncrasies, the Camel also packed a considerable punch for its day as the first British fighter with twin machine guns. It has been credited with the most aerial victories of any fighter type of the conflict, but that statistic is somewhat misleading - and further muddied by the heavy losses Camel units suffered in 1918, as higher performance types began to eclipse the plane. Nevertheless, Camels appeared on several battlefronts to the end of the war and beyond - during the Russian Civil War, for example - and performed remarkably well in a variety of other roles, including as a ground strafer, night fighter, night intruder, and carrier-based fighter.

Considering the length limitations of the Vanguard series this title delivers a fairly complete summary of the career of this iconic aircraft. The developmental history includes a lot of spin-off aircraft like the monoplane version, Comic night-fighter versions, trench strafers, and a 'parasite' version to be launched from airships. Aside from the Western Front and Italy, most interesting for me was the coverage of the Camel's service in far-flung theaters like Mesopotamia, the Greek/Turkish theater, and the Russian Civil War. The color fold-out on the back cover is a nice touch. I'd like to see more Vanguard titles like this on other WWI aircraft. The only improvements I could suggest are 3-view drawings of alternate versions (for modelers) and a table comparing the performance stats for the Camel (for wargamers).

A nice addition to anyone's collection of WW I literature. Jon Guttman always delivers the truth, although he may lack a bit of vitality sometimes win it comes to telling a story. Just the facts, ma'am! Book was in excellent condition. Great illustrations and info on probably World War Ones' most famous fighter. Curse you, Red Baron!

If you have an interest in this area, this is a cheap and easy way to get a ton of info, It is well organized and talks a lot about what really happened and how claims for 'kills' were made. a long list of names and units are available and he clearly has done his research. if you are a Sopwith F-1 guy, this is a good one for you.

"Camel!" Camels accounted for more Allied aerial victories than any other Allied fighter plane of WW1. It had to be handled very carefully in the air, but once its pilots learned the Camel was a demanding mount, it was the scourge of the Kaiser's Flying Corps.
