Chris has written more than 22 books such as Bloody Biscay, Brothers in Arms and The Luftwaffe's Blitz, that have been critically acclaimed for their research and been published in Swedish, Hungarian, Spanish and Czech as well as in English. He has already written several books for Osprey. He lives in Buckinghamshire, UK. Chris Davey has illustrated more than 70 titles for Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces, Combat Aircraft and Elite Units series since 1994. Based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, and one of the last traditional airbrush artists in the business, he has become the artist of choice for both USAAF fighters and RAF subject matter, proving his undoubted skill when dealing with large aircraft subjects such as the Halifax and Sunderland.
