Israeli Mirage and Nesher Aces (Aircraft of the Aces) ebook

The Israeli aerial kill exchange rate and overall air-to-air performance was phenomenal

The Israeli aerial kill exchange rate and overall air-to-air performance was phenomenal. Although the Israeli pilots were flying Mach 2 fighters, they lacked any modern radar equipment and their MiG-21 flying opponents should have had a performance edge over them. This book details their most signifcant engagements, many of which were essentially World War 2 style dogfights fought with jet aircraft.

The book has piqued my curiousity about the Nesher and answered a lot of questions I had of the Israeli Mirage. It has provided me excellent information on how to model, paint and finish an IDF Mirage. Also, it was an enjoyable read on the combat exploits of both fighters.

Although the acquisition of the Mirage came as no great surprise in light of the special diplomatic relationship between France and Israel at that time, the IDF/AF’s insistence that the Mirage III interceptor should be turned into a fighter-bomber was controversial. Like most first generation Mach 2 fighters, the Mirage III was developed as a point-defence interceptor to counter high-flying bombers carrying nuclear weapons.

Enjoyed this book about Mirage and Nesher aces. A lot of great information. Starting the F-4 book by the same author.

Each chapter describes the battles the Mirage and Nesher pilots were involved in ... fine. But ... as the author has chosen to structure his book this way, each chapter needs a map at the start of it to better understand the huge volumes of text and photos to follow.
Lots of great photos and incredibly detailed and extensive monologues of actual dogfights. If it had a few maps to get the text into context, it would get a 5.

Perfect in every respect!!!! Many thanks!!!!!

This is a very good book about the IDF Mirage and Nesher. Until I read this book, I did not know of the Nesher fighter. The book has piqued my curiousity about the Nesher and answered a lot of questions I had of the Israeli Mirage. It has provided me excellent information on how to model, paint and finish an IDF Mirage. Also, it was an enjoyable read on the combat exploits of both fighters. I hope Osprey publishes more books like this.

The air battles between the Israelis and Egyptians paved the way for fighter designs and tactics after the '73 war as a lot of assumptions of reliance on hit and run engagements, use of missiles vs cannon, and high altitude/speed encounters were debunked by the air battles which saw close range dogfights with a need for cannon. This is why this book, along with others written on the battles between the '67 Israeli victory and the '73 Egyptian victory have been very insightful in their relevance to today's air-combat doctrine. I read Slomo's book after ready several other books relating to the air wars between both sides. However I find his research to be all from the Israeli side and therefore written with extreme bias and false accounts/statements which would be naturally the case if researching and reporting from one side of the players in the wars. Also, it comes across that the Egyptian fighters were extremely inept, given the fact the majority of the Egyptian victories were either credit towards AAA fire or not mentioned at all. Contributing to the delusional one sided kill-ratio was the fact that the IAF would be credited with a kill "...without a shot being fired" (pg 34). It's counted as a 'kill' not just when actually shot down, but when an Arab fighter crashed, while engaging a Mirage, and not actually shot down as, "Over the years, quite a number of Arab fighters crashed while engaging Shahaks, either hitting the ground during low flying or spinning out of control, usually due to pilot error" while being pursued. "...but in later years the attitude changed. Arab fighters lost in combat because of pilot error were...credited to the squadron, and they became known as 'squadron kills'. This admission questions the validity of the fantastically high IAF combat kill claims. Also, although the '67 attack was a resounding victory and achievement for the IDF, the author falsely mentioned that there was only 1 air-to-air loss when several other unbiased published historians report losses between 10 and 11, including the admission of the IAF themselves (as per the more objective historian's research by Daivd Nicolle and Tom Cooper on the subject matter).

If you're a fan of cheer leading the IAF with little interest for details on accurate kills/losses and omissions from the other-side of the author’s focus and more interested in cheer-leading one side one side with little regard for details for historic accuracy then this book is for you.

It’s extremely one sided and exaggerated towards the IAF's side of the conflict. Almost no comprehensive or objective analysis or accounts and it's riddled with historically inaccurate claims and assumptions. It is full of colorfully written accounts and details of the IAF pilots' stories but it's certainly not a go-to if you're looking for a comprehensive overview of the conflict as it lacks accounts from the Egyptian side. Therefore it fails to mention almost any IAF losses which would be of interest to any historian looking for accuracy over one-sided cheer leading. The glaring one is the false claim that only one IAF pilot was lost in '67 in air-to-air combat when at least 10 confirmed IAF kills were confirmed by the Israeli air force’s own admission and based on several published reputable authors/books. Also, it was revealed that there are IAF claimed kills that were a result of EAF planes crashing via spin or other mishap irrelevant of the fact that they were not actually shot down. This surely provides insight as to why the IAF kill ratio claims seem soo fantastical. Overall, it's theatrically written but lacks journalistic cross-checking and verification of accounts for accuracy.
