B-17 at War
Yenne, Bill
ISBN: 0760325227
Zenith Press USA 2006 
4to - over 9" - 12" tall Soft Cover New book, 127 pages, 165 photos, many in colour. Slight shelf wear to cover. Not only the greatest bomber ever built, the B-17 "Flying Fortress" is also a symbol of American military, industrial, and economic might soaring as it never had before. Veteran aviation writer Bill Yenne documents the hits and misses of the B-17's development, the deployment of the different models - from the first prototype in 1935, the YB-17, to the final version in 1944, the thirteen gun B-17G - the missions flown, and the men who flew them. Extensively researched, B-17 at War tracks the roles and impact of the Flying Fortresses and their crews, detailing each critical mission in the Pacific, Mediterranean, and European Theatres of World War II.  Very Good

Attack Of The Drones: A History Of Unmanned Aerial Combat
Yenne, Bill
ISBN: 0760318255
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2004 
4to - over 9" - 12" tall 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

B-24 Liberator Units of the Eighth Air Force
Dorr, Robert F.
ISBN: 8483724952
Osprey Aviation/Delprado Spain 2001 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, 62 photos, 24 color aircfraft profiles, 6 1/96 scale drawings. The B-24 Liberator was built in greater numbers than any other US warplane, yet its combat crews live, even today, in the shadow of the less plentiful but better-known, B-17. Accounts of the 'Mighty Eighth' in Europe, and indeed many of the books and films that emerged from the greatest air campaign in history, often overlook the B-24, even though it was in action for as long as the Flying Fortress, and participated in just as many perilous daylight bombing missions.   As New

RAF Aces of the Battle of Britain
Holmes, Tony; Price, Dr Alfred
ISBN: 848372345X
Osprey Aviation/Delprado Spain 2000 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, 56 photos, 25 color aircraft profiles, 6 color uniform illustrations. The Hawker Hurricane was the RAF's first monoplane fighter. Hurricanes outnumbered Spitfires during the Battle of Britain by three to one, and downed more aircraft. From July to October 1940 Fighter Command squadrons claimed 2,475 kills of which 1,393 were downed by Hurricanes. 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

Ju 88 Bomber Groups on the Western Front
Weal, John
ISBN: 8483725924
Osprey Aviation/Delprado Spain 2001 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, 64 photos, 24 colour aircraft profiles, 13 scale drawings. Undoubtedly the most versatile German aircraft of World War 2, the Junkers Ju 88 served as a fighter, bomber and patrol aircraft on every front on which the Luftwaffe fought. Blooded in action during the Blitzkrieg, the Ju 88 soon proved to be a formidable opponent for the beleaguered Allied air forces. This book is the first of three volumes which will cover the Ju 88's extensive wartime service in the bomber role, and it details the aircraft's early campaigns, through to its extensive use in the night Blitz of 1940-41. Contents: 1939-40, the Wunderbomber years; 1940-43, trial by fire; 1944-45, decline and dissolution.  As New

Bf 109D/E Aces of the Blitzkrieg
Weal, John
ISBN: 8483722194
Osprey Aviation/Delprado Spain 1999 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Soft Cover New book, 63 pages, 51 photos, 29 colour aircraft profiles, 4 colour uniform illustrations, 9 1/72 scale drawings. 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 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 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

Airlife Pub Ltd United Kingdom 2003 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages. The world's most popular, most sought-after, multi-role fighter flew more sorties than any other aircraft during Operation Desert Storm, the revolutionary aircraft that has continuously evolved to meet global needs. 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

4to - over 9" - 12" tall Soft Cover New book, 41 pages, 200+ photos, 17 colour illustrations, fold out sheet of 1/72 scale drawings. 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.

Mushroom Model Publications Poland 2007 
8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 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
