If I wanted to "try" A Wing and a Prayer: Bombing the Reich before I buy, are Hunters over Korea: A Solitaire Game of Air Combat over Korea (1950-1953) or Thud Ridge: A Solitaire Game of the Air War over North Vietnam similar in game play? How are they different? Is one better?

How about Aces of Valor: Aerial Combat during WWI? Is this similar or a different system?

Thanks!
Mark

AWaaP is the PnP's if they had an actual rules editor come along and fix all the ambiguities and streamline all the die rolls (in the PnP's). But the PnP's still feel like fan projects compared to AWaaP which feels and plays like a professional game which, with the v2.2 rules, is first class from front to back.
You can download the AWaaP v2.2 rules and charts from the LnL website, look that examples of the map and cards online. That will give you a very good idea of how the game plays mechanically.

Everything else is your own personal perspective on "narrative" and "fun":
Draw a mission card, organize your squadron and crews, fly the mission, survive events-flak-fighters, make it back home, reorganize your squadron.
If you are really into this campaign there is more than enough "narrative" to suck you in. If you are a general WW2 or air war fan it might not be enough, your mileage may vary on that point.

That being said will always recommend and support people buy and play the Berserker PnP games.
