Even before America entered World War II, RAF Aces were battling the Axis forces over Europe. Americans wanted to read adventures of these aviation heroes, and Standard Magazines (aka, Thrilling Publications) sought to meet that demand with a new air-war publication which hit the newsstands in August of 1941. For one thin dime, readers could experience the stalwart heroism of the flying men of the R.A.F. as they battled Nazis in the war-torn skies of England and Europe. The magazine lasted for thirteen issues, ending in the summer of 1944, as the Axis was beginning to topple. Relive those tales of high-flying heroism! RAF Aces now returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
