The first volume in their story, it deals with the involvement of the Italian air force units as they became involved in the Spanish Civil War ... The story also gives a good indication of the international involvement in the Spanish Civil war, with pilots from Italy, Spain, Russia, Germany, as well as America and the UK all taking part.To close with, there are 5 pages of good quality colour aircraft profiles, all featuring the Italian Fiat CR32 biplane fighter.
