Ju 87 Stuka

Airlife Pub Ltd United Kingdom 2004 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, 69 photos, 17 colour profiles. In the first three years of Word War Two, the word Stuka became synonymous with terror. Across the face of Europe, troops and civilians alike quailed under the banshee wail of the Junkers 87 dive bomber as it plummeted towards its target. By 1943 the Stuka's day as a dive bomber was virtually over but it came into its own as a tank buster on the Russian front, where it fought to the bitter end. This book tells the story of the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka, the units that operated it in its many campaigns, and the men who flew it into combat.  As New

Typhoon Wings of 2nd TAF 1943-45
Thomas, Chris
ISBN: 9781846039737
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM86. The Typhoon was the RAF's chosen heavyweight fighter-bomber to support the British and Canadian Armies during the invasion of northwest Europe. A specialist in the aircraft (his father flew them in WW2), author Chris Thomas has done much research on the Typhoon's operations with 2nd TAF during this crucial period of the war. His research reveals for the first time the extent, and chronology, of the struggle to equip 18 RAF and RCAF squadrons in time for D-Day, and how this feat was only narrowly achieved. These 18 squadrons (later increased to 20) were organised into highly mobile, self-supporting wings that provided devastating close support for the British and Canadian armies in their advance across northwest Europe. Thomas' book analyzes the tactics employed by the Typhoon squadrons during these epic events, supported by the words of the pilots themselves. These battles were by no means one-sided, with the Typhoons' nemesis - the highly effective German flak units - exacting a terrible toll on 2nd TAF units. Indeed, some 400 aircraft and 150 pilots were lost during the Normandy campaign alone. Losses such as these led Air Chief Marshal Sir Harry Broadhurst, Air Officer Commanding 83 Group (which controlled more than half of 2nd TAF's Typhoon squadrons), to remark 'I suppose that flying one of these aircraft was the most dangerous task the Air Force has ever asked anybody to do'. Along with photographs and diagrams, the book includes artwork by the author as well, making for a comprehensive and authoritative guide.  As New

Sopwith Triplane Aces of World War 1
Franks, Norman
ISBN: 9781841767284
Osprey Pub Co  2004 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, 100+ photos, 45 color profiles, 4 scale drawings. ACE62. The inspiration behind the iconic Fokker Dr I, Sopwith's Triplane was built as a replacement for the company's hugely successful, and much loved, Pup. Thanks to its massive wing area, the revolutionary Triplane boasted an unmatched rate of climb and greatly improved manoeuvrability. Indeed, when the type made its combat debut in late 1916, the Triplane could easily out-fight any other aircraft operated by either side. Used exclusively by the Royal Naval Air Service and the French Navy, theTriplane had a far greater impact on the aerial war over the Western Front than its meagre production numbers really deserved. Pilots such as Ray Collishaw, Bob Little and Roderic Dallas all enjoyed success in the bloody struggle for aerial supremacy over the Western Front in 1917. The first volume in print devoted exclusively to Triplane aces, this book includes numerous first-hand accounts, detailed appendices, more than 90 rare photographs and over 40 all-new colour profiles and planforms. Contents: The Sopwith Triplane Scout, Naval Eight, No 9 Naval Squadron, No 10 Naval and the Black Flight, Appendices.  As New

Victor Units of the Cold War
Brookes, Andrew
ISBN: 9781849083393
Osprey Pub Co  2011 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM88. Of the three jet bombers that formed the RAF’s V-Force in the early years of the Cold War, the Victor was perhaps the most technologically advanced. First flown on 24 December 1952, the Victor entered service in B 1 configuration in November 1957. Further improvements were introduced with the B 2, which was optimized for high altitude. Most B 2s were equipped to carry the Blue Steel stand-off missile, but eight were modified in the strategic reconnaissance role because the Victor 2 was then the longest-ranging aircraft in the RAF. The Victor ceased to be a low-level bomber after the nuclear mission was taken over by the Royal Navy’s Polaris submarine force in the late 1960s. Thereafter, Victor 1s and 2s continued in frontline service as airborne tankers, supporting operations such as the Falklands War and the Gulf War until the last Victor flight took place on 30 November 1993. Contents: Introduction, Chapter One - The Victor Emergent, Chapter Two - High-level Cold War bombing, Chapter Three - Skybolt and Blue Steel, Chapter Four - Low-level Operations, Chapter Five - Middle East and Far East adventures, Chapter Six - Versatile Victor (MRR and tanking), Chapter Seven - Victor Ludorum (Falklands, Desert Storm).  As New

Mustang Aces of the 357th Fighter Group

ISBN: 9781846039850
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE96. The 357th Fighter Group produced 42 aces, more than any other group within the USAAF. It was also the first group in the Eighth Air Force to be equipped with the P-51. Thanks to this fighter and the talented pilots assigned to the group (men such as Bud Anderson, Kit Carson, John England and Chuck Yeager) the 357th achieved a faster rate of aerial victories than any other Eighth Air Force group during the final year of the war. It also claimed the highest number of aerial kills - 56 - in a single mission. The group was awarded two Distinguished Unit Citations (the unit equivalent of the Medal of Honor). Written by Chris Bucholtz, this book is crammed full of first-hand accounts, superb photography and some of the most colorful profiles to be found in World War II aviation.   As New

ISBN: 9781841768489
Osprey Pub Co  2005 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM57. After the attacks on 11 September 2001, Apache units made significant contributions to the Coalition campaign against Taliban and al-Qaeda forces in Afghanistan. Functioning as the 'killer' part of US Army Hunter-killer teams, Apaches sought out and brought overwhelming firepower to bear on Taliban and al-Qaeda forces, as well as providing direct support to Coalition troops on the ground. Apaches spearheaded the advance of the 3rd Infantry and the 101st airborne divisions into Iraq, engaging in some of the heaviest fighting along the western axis of advance. Weather and enemy fire took a heavy toll on Apaches operating in Western Iraq, but the resilience and flexibility of the Apache was central to the success of this campaign.   As New

Osprey Pub Co  2001 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM26. For every American fighter pilot involved in the Vietnam War, the ultimate goal was to 'kill a MiG'. In eight years of conflict 43 Vietnamese Peoples Air Force aircraft were claimed by US Navy and US Marine Corps Phantom II crews, and one single ace crew produced. Navy Phantom IIs scored the first kills of the Vietnam War, in April 1965, as well as scoring the last in January 1973.

US Army AH-1 Cobra Units in Vietnam

ISBN: 9781841766065
Osprey Pub Co  2003 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM41. Bell’s AH-1 Cobra was the first dedicated helicopter gunship to reach frontline service anywhere in the world. Developed as a private venture by the manufacturer, and based on the mechanics of the ubiquitous UH-1 Huey, the Cobra proved a huge success once introduced into combat with the US Army in 1966. Built as a key weapon in the Advanced Aerial Fire Support System concept of 1965, the AH-1 was one of the few aircraft to reach the combat zone after actual combat experience went into its design. The AH-1 helped reduce the losses being suffered by vulnerable troop transport helicopters by providing effective fire suppression during airmobile operations. This book explores its history, technology and crew.   As New

ISBN: 9781841766522
Osprey Pub Co  2004 
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE058. In 1939, Slovakia signed a protection agreement with the German Reich and joined the attack on Poland, where its Avia B-534-equipped fighter squadrons claimed their first kills. In October 1942, having made do with obsolete aircraft, the Slovaks were equipped with Bf 109Es and eventually acquired 43 Messerschmitt fighters. The Slovaks would claim over 215 kills. Although it supported German efforts in Yugoslavia and Greece, Bulgaria did not declare war on Russia. First seeing action in August 1943, Bulgarian fighter pilots used their Bf 109Gs to good effect. From late 1943 through to mid-1944, the Bulgarian pilots attempted to defend the country from American bombers, and Stoyanov and Bochev made ace during this period.   As New

8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, COM43.
