F-100 Super Sabre at War
Gardner, Thomas E.
ISBN: 0760328609
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2007 
4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 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

Copies were also produced in China, with further variants coming from this source, equipping many Asian and African air forces.

ISBN: 9781841761626
Osprey Pub Co  2001 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM25. The erstwhile enemy of the USAF and US Navy during the nine years of American involvement in the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese Peoples' Air Force (VPAF) quickly grew from an ill-organised rabble of poorly trained pilots flying antiquated communist aircraft into a highly effective fighting force that more than held its own over the skies of North Vietnam. Flying Soviet fighters like the MiG-17, and MiG-19, the VPAF produced over a dozen aces, whilst the Americans managed just two pilots and three navigators in the same period. Contents: Establishing the VPAF; Training; MiG-17; MiG-19; MiG-21; Appendices; Full Ace Listing; Confirmed Kill Listing; Commentary on the Colour Profiles.  As New

Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2006 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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.

RF-8 Crusader Units over Cuba and Vietnam

ISBN: 9781855327825
Osprey Pub Co  1999 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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

8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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

Osprey Pub Co  2003 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, 100+ photos, 61 color profiles, 5 scale drawings. ACE53. 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

Osprey Pub Co  2002 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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

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 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 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

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.

His recruits included his elite 4th Wing pilots, and by the end of the war, the 51st had two pilots who achieved the status of 'Double Ace' as well as the highest scoring ace of the war, Joe McConnell. This book describes the 51st Wing’s tenure with the Sabre that led to their high scoring sprees of 1953. Contents: Flying the New 'E' Model Sabres; Sabre Tactics Versus MiG Tactics; Profiling the 51st Wing Sabre Aces; Personal Accounts of MiG Kills by the Aces; Appendices.  As New
