Volume 1 of Italian Aviation Units of WWI Published

In 1999, noted Italian aviation historian Roberto Gentilli published his landmark book I Reparti dell’aviazione italiana nella Grande Guerra, or Italian Aviation Units in the Great War. The book had 494 pages and about 320 photographs, and was in Italian. This landmark work was the first comprehensive account of Italian WWI aviation to be published. From the standpoint of English speakers, the issue was the language. Well, Roberto and Aeronaut have partnered to publish an expanded, English language edition.

Today, Aeronaut announces volume 1 of this 5-volume set. Volume 1 has 262 pages, 277 photos (25 in color), and 62 color profiles. All five volumes have been laid out; the remaining four volumes are just awaiting their profiles; with publication of all four remaining volumes planned to be completed in May. In total, the five volumes will have more than 1,500 photos, most previously unpublished, and include more units than the original volume. Roberto’s set of books will provide the most comprehensive coverage of Italian aviation of the Great War.

All the best,
Jack Herris

i have read the Italian version of the book you mention and i have found much of James book to be the same text
