Pusher Aces of World War 1
Guttman, Jon
ISBN: 9781846034176
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE88. Pusher fighters, designed with the engine at the rear and the machine gun at the front, may have looked ungainly, yet they were able to hold their own remarkably well against their German counterparts. This is the story of the unusual pusher and its many aces, including Lanoe Hawker VC, who formed and led Britain’s first fighter squadron before dying in a ten-minute duel with Manfred von Richtofen, American ‘cowboy’ ace Frederick Libby, third-ranking French ace Charles Nungesser and the aggressive Belgian ace Fernand Jacquet. Packed with colourful artwork of a variety of pusher designs, paint schemes, and camouflage from many different nationalities, this book guides you through the twists and turns of this bizarre yet surprisingly successful fighter during World War 1. Contents; Chapter 1: A Simple Solution; Chapter 2: More Dangerous Than They Looked; Chapter 3: Britain’s First Fighters; Chapter 4: The Fighting ‘Fees’; Appendices: Aces, Squadrons and bases.  As New

Spad VII Aces of World War I
Guttman, Jon
ISBN: 1841762229
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE39. Built by the 'Société Anonyme Pour l’Aviation et ses Dérivés', (SPAD), the SPAD VII was the first successful fighting scout design to emerge from the company that had traded as Duperdussin pre-war. Flown ‘from the off’ by aces Paul Sauvage and Georges Guynemer, the scouts made an immediate impression. Indeed, the latter pilot was so impressed that he dubbed the Type VII the ‘flying machine gun’. The first of two volumes on SPAD aces, this book tells the whole story from the ace perspective. By the time production of the SPAD VII ended in the final months of 1918, around 6000 examples had been built, and Allied aces on every front had enjoyed success with the type.  As New

Vulcan Units of the Cold War
Brookes, Andrew
ISBN: 9781846032974
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE72. The best of the three RAF jet bombers in the early years of the Cold War, the Vulcan was designed as the Avro 698, and possessed fighter-like manoeuvrability at low level despite its size. First flown in August 1952, the Vulcan entered service in February 1957. Most were equipped to carry the Blue Steel stand-off missile, but in 1966 around 50 Vulcans were re-deployed in a tactical low-level bombing role. Three flew during the Falklands War, and the last Vulcans in service were used as aerial tankers until April 1984. This book examines the design of the Vulcan, exploring the improvements made to its engine and its evolving combat role. The illustrations include many in-flight photographs and detailed colour profiles. This is a timely examination of a distinctive and ground-breaking aircraft. Contents; Forging the hammer - development of the Vulcan; Cold War deterrent - high level lay down; Long range stand-off; Low level sanctuary; Colonial adventures; The Versatile Vulcan (MRR and tanking); Black Buck - the Falklands bombing; SEAD missions.  As New

P-36 Hawk Aces of World War 2
Persyn, Lionel, Stenman, Kari, Thomas, Andrew
ISBN: 9781846034091
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE86. The Curtiss P-36 was considered a revolution in performance design in comparison to other US fighters. Yet by the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor the P-40 was increasingly supplanting the P-36, which the US then exported to France under the guise of the Hawk 75. Flown by the French, captured by the Germans, sold to the Finns, transferred to India and Africa, and even incorporated into the RAF, the Hawk 75 saw service in every theatre of operations and in a variety of combat environments. This book depicts the fascinating life of a plane that fought on both sides in the war, with colour artwork, photographs and first-hand accounts. Contents; Chapter1 In the Beginning; Chapter 2 The Battle of France; Chapter 3 In African Skies; Chapter 4 Defending Finland; Chapter 5 The Rising Sun; Chapter 6 ‘Old Soldiers Never Die’; Appendices.  As New

Fairey IIIF: Interwar Military Workhorse
Jarrett, Philip
ISBN: 9780946958726
Ad Hoc Publications  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 248 pages, 491 photographs, 20 line drawings, 31 colour profiles. Few interwar military aircraft gave such widespread and valuable service as the Fairey IIIF. From Great Britain to North Africa, the Middle East and Far East, it was to be found, in both landplane and seaplane form, serving at RAF and Royal Navy bases and on board aircraft carriers, capital ships and cruisers. Its versatility enabled it to perform a variety of roles - general-purpose aircraft, ambulance, bomber, carrier-borne or catapult-launched reconnaissance seaplane, gunnery spotter and target tug and glider-target launcher. The IIIF also found military buyers in several countries, serving in Argentina, Chile, Greece and New Zealand in small numbers, and it proved useful as a test-bed for engines, silencers and naval equipment - a sure sign that it was a capable and reliable aeroplane. The greatest accolade bestowed upon the IIIF, however, was that it was the chosen mount for Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) and Prince George when they flew with the Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm. Here, Philip Jarrett, one of our foremost aviation historians, has gathered together an astonishing collection of almost 500 photographs of this versatile aircraft, the vast majority of which have come from private archives and are hitherto unpublished, and supplied an original and incisive commentary to accompany them, the whole providing the most detailed appraisal of the Fairey IIIF ever to appear in print.  As New

F4U Corsair Units of the Korean War
Thompson, Warren
ISBN: 9781846034114
Osprey Publishing  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM78. The definitive account of F-4 Corsair Units deployed in the Korean War, this book tells the story of the 26 US Navy Squadrons, most of which were carrier based, and the 6 Marine Corps F-4 squadrons that flew combat missions against the North Koreans. Drawing from a vast repository of personal interviews with F-4 pilots, the author paints a harrowing picture of the deadly combat of this often forgotten air war. Included in this volume is the story of Lt Guy Bordelon, the US Navy's sole ace of the Korean War, who flew an F4U-5N night-fighter against the night raiders sent up by the Korean Air force. Backing up the text is a vast number of previously unpublished private photographs that bring the stories of these pilots to life. Finally the book contains extensive appendices that detail every unit deployment by carrier, air group, Corsair model and tail code. Also included is a detailed list noting every Corsair lost in the war, with tail number, pilot, date of loss and the unit.  As New

US Navy A-1 Skyraider Units of the Vietnam War
Burgess, Rick; Rausa, Zip
ISBN: 9781846034107
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages, COM77. Designed and built as a carrier-based attack aircraft in 1944, the A-1 reached frontline units too late to see combat in World War 2. With the advent of jets in the late 1940s, the Skyraider was seen as a dated throwback to the golden age of piston-engined naval aviation. Despite its days seemingly numbered, the A-1 proved to be a huge success in the Korean War. Remaining in production through to 1957, some 3,180 Skyraiders had been built by the time the last one left the Douglas plant. Nicknamed the ''flying dump truck'', the A-1 remained a key component in naval air wings into the 1960s, allowing the aircraft to play its part in the escalating conflict in Vietnam. Both A-1 attack and EA-1F airborne early warning aircraft saw action in Southeast Asia from 1960 through to 1969, when the last examples were finally retired from carrier decks. The A-1s in particular bombed targets in both North and South Vietnam, despite the aircraft being highly vulnerable to enemy flak and fighters. Co-written by a two-tour Vietnam War combat veteran in the A-1, this is the first book that focuses exclusively on the aircraft's service in Vietnam, providing a must-have volume for Vietnam aviation enthusiasts.  As New

The same company then designed the PWS 10, which was the first indigenous Polish fighter to enter service. Finally the PZL P.7a was the first of the classic Pulawski gull-wing monoplane fighters to see service, soldiering on right up until 1939 although it was obsolete by that time. The service use of all three aircraft is described, illustrated with many photos and full colour profiles. The PWS 10 also saw service in Spain, and this chapter in the type’s history is also described and illustrated. An invaluable guide to three classic inter-war fighters, with complete details of the colours and markings applied during their service.  As New

Mushroom Model Publications  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 152 pages. The Yak-23 was the final development of the highly successful Soviet fighter series which began with the Yak-1 in 1940. Its immediate predecessors were the Yak-15 and Yak-17, both simple jet-powered versions of the wartime Yak-3, but the Yak-23 was an updated all-metal version of the basic design. It saw service with several Warsaw Pact air forces, as a lightweight fast-climbing interceptor.

This book describes the development and operations of the Hs126, and is illustrated with many photos and colour profiles, plus scale plans.

Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG125. The Bell Huey Cobra was the very first purpose-designed helicopter gunship to become operational and to see combat.

F-100 Super Sabre at War

ISBN: 0760328609
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 127 pages, 160+ photos and illustrations. The first supersonic fighter in not just America but the world, the F-100 Super Sabre marked a real revolution in aircraft design. A celebration of this truly remarkable fighter, F-100 Super Sabre highlights the many firsts in a long and distinguished career: The Super Sabre preceded the Soviet Union's Mig-19 into the supersonic arena by as much as five months. It was the first operational jet fighter to exceed Mach I in level flight. And in its heyday the F-100 set a raft of speed and altitude records. The first in a noble line of fighters soon to be known as "The Century Series," the F-100 had the F-102 Delta Dagger, F-104 Star Fighter, F-105 Thunderchief, and the venerable F-160 Delta Dart as stablemates. In authoritative text and pictures, technical drawings and photographs, F-100 Super Sabre details the aircrafts every variation, her weaponry, and equipment. The book is a fitting tribute to the fighter nicknamed "Hundert" or more affectionately, "The Hun"--an aircraft loved by nearly everyone who flew or tended her and respected by all.   As New

Huey Cobra Gunships
Bishop, Chris
ISBN: 1841769843
Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG125. The Bell Huey Cobra was the very first purpose-designed helicopter gunship to become operational and to see combat. Designed in the mid-1960s as an "interim solution" for an armed escort and close-support weapon to support the US Army in the Vietnam War, it is still being manufactured and improved in the 21st century, making it a success far beyond the wildest dreams of its creators. In this book Chris Bishop discusses the origins of the Huey Cobra, the innovations to its design throughout the years and its major combat uses in numerous theatres, including Vietnam, the Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s, US Persian Gulf escort operations, Lebanon 1983, Panama 1989, the Gulf War 1991 and in the current conflict in Iraq. Contents: Introduction - Origins and Development - Variants - Cobra in Action - Foreign Cobra Users - Conclusion - Bibliography - Color Plate Commentary - Index.  As New

RF-8 Crusader Units over Cuba and Vietnam
Mersky, Peter
ISBN: 9781855327825
Osprey Pub Co  1999 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages. COM12. Although the Crusader was built first and foremost as a Navy interceptor, as has often been the tradition with US fighters, a photo-reconnaissance variant was also produced by Vought. The photo-bird's first operational test came in the autumn of 1962 when its overflights of Cuba alerted the world to the likely presence of medium-range ballistic missiles on the Caribbean island. The recce Crusader's next action came during the long years of the Vietnam War. This volume is the second of two in the Combat Aircraft series devoted to the Crusader, the first title (again by Peter Mersky) having covered the F-8 fighter variants, and their MiG-killing exploits, during the Vietnam War. Contents: Introduction - Cuban Crisis - Early Operations in South-East Asia - 1965-68 - Missions and Losses Mount - Getting the Coverage - 1972-75 - The Last Campaigns - Appendices.  As New

Pfalz Scout Aces of World War 1
VanWyngarden, Greg
ISBN: 9781841769981
Osprey Pub Co  2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE71. The Pfalz Flugzeug Werke, located at Speyer am Rhein in Bavaria, was the third in the great triumvirate (along with Fokker and Albatros) of German fighter manufacturers in the Great War. When World War I broke out in 1914, Pfalz initially produced copies of the Morane-Saulnier parasol monoplanes for the German air service. With the advent of the famed Fokker Eindeckers with their synchronized machine guns, Pfalz entered the fighter market with the Pfalz E.I and its successors, all monoplanes which were similarly armed. Though never as as numerous as the Albatros or Fokker designs, the D III/IIIa was flown in combat by many well-known aces: Werner Voss, Carl Degelow, Erich Löwenhardt, and the balloon buster Fritz von Röth, among others. This book examines the little-known aircraft flown by these incredible men. Contents: Introduction, The Pfalz Monoplanes, The Pfalz D III Enters Service, A Home-Grown Fighter for Bavaria, The Workhorse, The Pfalz D VIII and D XII.  As New

Osprey Pub Co  2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, 81 photos, 20 color profiles, 4 1/48 scale drawings. ACE67. The Sopwith Pup was the forerunner of the hugely successful Sopwith Camel, which duly became the most successful fighter of World War 1. The first proper British fighting scout, the first Pups - the Royal Naval Air Service - arrived on the Western Front in 1916. Although regarded as a ‘nice’ aeroplane to fly, pilots who used it in combat gained much success during the first half of 1917. The Royal Flying Corps also used the Pup from January 1917 onwards, with the final combats with the machine occurring in December of that year. This book describes the combat careers of the successful Pup aces, how they flew and how they fought. Contents: Origins of the Pup, With the RNAS in 1916, RNAS and RC in ‘Bloody April’, Summer 1917, Autumn 1917, Appendices.  As New

Designed in a great rush at the end of 1917 just in time to take part in the German standard fighter competition held in January/February 1918, the D VII easily walked away with first prize. As Germanys premier fighter unit, von Richthofens JG I (led by Hermann Göring in the wake of the 'Red Baron's' recent death) received the first examples of the D VII to reach the frontline in late April. Built to oppose the new generation of French SPAD XIIIs and British SE5a's and Camel fighters, the D VII was arguably the best all-round fighting scout of the Great War.   As New

Responsible for destroying 1294 enemy aircraft between June 1917 and November 1918, the Camel was the most successful fighting scout employed by either side in terms of the sheer number of victories that it scored. The Camel was renowned for its sensitivity and need for skill and experience, and casualties amongst pilots undergoing training on the type were very high. More than 5490 examples were constructed, and this book covers its combat use on the Western Front, in Palestine, on the Italian front, in the Home Defence role in the UK and in Russia.  As New

SPAD XII/XIII Aces of World War 1

ISBN: 9781841763163
Osprey Pub Co  2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, 100+ photos, 57 color profiles, 5 scale drawings. ACE47. This book details the exploits of the pilots who flew the hugely successful SPAD XIII and the trickier SPAD XII. Built in response to the combat inadequacies of the SPAD VII, the XIII first entered service with the French Aviation Militaire in late 1917. Despite suffering engine unreliability, the XIII enjoyed great success on the Western Front, where it was flown by numerous French, American, Italian and Belgian aces, including Eddie Rickenbacker, leading US ace of World War I. The SPAD XII, meanwhile, was the product of numerous improvements to the SPAD VII model. Entering service in July 1917, the aircraft boasted a single-shot 37 mm Puteaux cannon, which had to be hand-reloaded in flight! Tricky to fly, the XII was only issued to experienced pilots, and was flown briefly by a number of aces.   As New

Undoubtedly the most famous fighter type to see service on either side during World War 1, the Fokker Dr I was a revelation when it entered service on the western front in 1917. Manfred von Richthofen’s JG 1 ‘circus’ was the first Jasta to completely re-equip with the new fighter, and in the skilled hands of its numerous aces the Dr I proved a formidable opponent. The Dr I remained in service on the Western Front until replaced by the superior Fokker D VII in May 1918. Just weeks prior to that, however, Germany’s leading ace, the great ‘Red Baron’, had been killed at the controls of a Dr I.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 100 pages, 113 photos, 40 color profiles, 25 1/72 scale drawings. ACE33. The French Nieuport company provided the Allied air forces with the first true fighter scout of World War 1 in the shape of the diminutive XI of 1915. Based on the Bebe racer, built for the abandoned Gordon-Bennett Trophy of the previous year, the aircraft utilised a sesquiplane (lower wing much smaller than the upper wing) arrangement which gave the XI extreme manoeuvrability. It was the only scout respected by the all-conquering German Fokker E-series of 1915-16, and was flown by French, British, Russian, Belgian and Italian aces. The XI was replaced from May 1916 onwards by the bigger and more powerful XVII. which proved to be one of the best fighters of World War 1.

ISBN: 9781841762630
Osprey Pub Co  2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM29. Having honed their piloting skills on the subsonic MiG-17 and transonic MiG-19, the Vietnamese Peoples’ Air Force (VPAF) received their first examples of the legendary MiG-21 supersonic fighter in 1966. Soon thrown into combat over North Vietnam, the guided-missile equipped MiG-21 proved a deadly opponent for the USAF, Navy and Marine Corps crews striking at targets deep into communist territory. Most of the VPAF’s 12+ aces scored their bulk of their kills in the MiG-21, which was then the best fighter produced by Russia’s premier fast jet manufacturer, Mikoyan Gurevich. Well over 200 MiG-21s were supplied to the VPAF, and the numerous models and the schemes they wore are chronicled in great detail in this unique volume.  As New

 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, 86 photos, 65 color photos, 6 1/48 scale diagrams. ACE72. The entry of the United State’s premier jet interceptor into the Korean War was triggered by the ever-increasing presence of the Soviet-built MiG-15 south of the Yalu River. The possibility of the USAF losing air supremacy over the Korean Peninsula was unacceptable. The 4th Fighter Wing got the call for combat in Korea. They were made up of a combination of new pilots right out of jet training and the older combat veterans of World War II vintage. This combination of pilot types wrote and re-wrote the text books on jet warfare. Of the 40 jet aces that the war produced, the 4th Wing boasted 24 of them. This book details these incredible pilots and the planes they flew.

Attack Of The Drones: A History Of Unmanned Aerial Combat

ISBN: 0760318255
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 127 pages, 162 photos mostly in colour. Slight shelf wear to cover. On November 4, 2002, an MQ-1B Predator unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) took out an al-Qaeda SUV with an AGM-114 Hellfire air attack missile 100 miles east of the Yemeni capital of San'a. This marked a turning point in military history. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) had taken the offensive, and were now performing as unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs). But this attack was not the first use of a UAV in combat. The idea and technology of unmanned aircraft began with vehicles such as the Kettering Bug of World War I, and evolved through the first generation cruise missiles during World War II and the decade following. This book chronicles the evolution of unmanned, remotely piloted reconnaissance aircraft to their modern use in offensive combat operations.  Very Good

However the Spitfire's higher performance and smaller silhouette meant that it was more than twice as likely to survive contact with the enemy.  As New

The period covered in this volume was considered to be the 'glory years' for the Jagdwaffe - fresh from the experience gained in the Spanish Civil War - and for the Bf 109 in particular. Many famous pilots scored their first kills in the classic dogfights staged over Poland, Western Europe, the Channel and finally southern England. Some 40 Knight's Crosses were awarded in 1940 alone. However, after sweeping all before them in support of the Blitzkrieg across continental Europe, the Bf 109E pilots were to suffer badly during the Battle of Britain, the result of poor tactics inflicted upon them by the Luftwaffe High Command, and their mount's less then generous range.  As New

Air War in the Falklands 1982
Chant, Christopher
ISBN: 8483726009
Osprey Aviation/Delprado Spain 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 63 pages, 67 photos & maps, 16 colour aircraft profiles. The war fought between the United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982, for the possession of the Falkland Islands was probably the last 'colonial' war that will ever be undertaken by the British. This book shows how the key to British success was the speed with which the British gained and then maintained air superiority over the islands and the waters around then with their small force of Sea Harrier STOVL warplanes, which operated from two aircraft carriers. Though subsonic, the Sea Harrier and its Sidewinder AAM were a combination altogether superior to Argentina's mix of supersonic and subsonic warplanes with older weapons, and this advantage was emphasised by the significantly greater tactical acuity of the British pilots. The Argentine pilots fought with considerable piloting skill and enormous courage, and scored a number of stunning successes against British warships, but ultimately they could not prevent the British landing and the following land campaign that resulted in complete Argentine defeat. Contents: Error compunds error, The Task force heads south, Dominance of the Sea Harrier, Enter the Exocet, The battle for East Falkland, Overall British Superiority.  As New

Commonly referred to as the "Viper" by its aircrews, the F-16 has provided the US Air Force with its air defence capability for the last twenty-five years. The aircraft is a major export success and is in service with the air forces of Turkey, Israel, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea and Singapore. It has been steadily developed and improved and is available armed with a wide variety of combat systems for both air defence and ground attack missions. Its single afterburning turbofan allows a healthy top speed of 1,320 mph (2,124 kph) and a combat radius of up to 923 miles (1485 km). The aircraft is extremely agile with good all-round visibility from the generous bubble canopy. It has justifiably earned the reputation of being the world's favourite fighter.   As New

Among the most legendary Soviet combat aircraft of the Great Patriotic War was the Ilyushin OKB Il-2 Shturmovik, the world's first specifically designed ground attack aircraft. The Il-2 was a highly successful combat aircraft despite both the heavy losses it suffered at the hands of the Luftwaffe and its many technical shortcomings. This publication deals with the later Type 3 variant, fitted with a swept-back wing, and its derivatives, including the Il-2KR spotter aircraft and the UIl-2 two-seat trainer.   As New

ISBN: 9788389450500
Mushroom Model Publications Poland 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages, 184 B&W photos, 27 colour illustrations. The story of the Slovak Air Arm's 13th Squadron is recounted, from its formation following the break-up of Czechoslovakia, through combat on the Eastern Front as part of JG.52, to homeland defence against the USAAF and then action against its former allies, the Germans. With its history maligned and discredited under Communist rule, the true story of this very successful fighter unit can now be told. Mostly flying Bf109s of various versions, the unit also achieved the final biplane aerial victory, as late as 1944, when an Avia B.534 shot down a Ju52.  As New

By the time North Korea attacked its southern neighbour in 1950, the B-29 had been reclassified a medium bomber. Many of its crew members had fought their war and settled down to raise families and begin careers only to be recalled to fight another war on a distant Asian peninsula.  As New

Dorr, Robert F.
ISBN: 1855325012
Osprey Pub Co University Park, Illinois, U.S.A. 1995 
 Soft Cover New book, 99 pages, ACE04. The first virtually all-jet war, the conflict in Korea saw F-86 Sabres of the USAF take on MiG-15s of the North Korean and Chinese air forces. Although the Allied pilots were initially taken aback by the ability of the communist fighter in combat, sound training and skilful leadership soon enabled Sabre pilots to dominate the dogfights over the Yalu River. In all 39 F-86 pilots achieved ace status, and a number of these are profiled in this volume, as are notable pilots from the US Navy, Marine Corps and Royal Navy and, for the first time, the handful of MiG-15 aces. Also includes 56 full colour plates of the Aces aircrafts.   As New
