This book is probably the most comprehensive study of naval aviation and the importance of the fighter to provide defence to a fleet. The author has produced extensive notes, bibliography, data and index to help the reader find a way through the considerable amount of detail on naval aviation from the major navies – Most Recommended
The author had a distinguished career in aerial photographic Interpretation and this is his seventh book, drawing from that considerable experience. The author has based his lavishly illustrated work on captured German war photographs showing what they knew about Russian strength and activity on the Eastern Front. Highly Recommended
A splendid selection of war artist illustrations with vivid text. This is a fascinating book that brings out the carnage of WWI as the opposing armies engaged in a terrible war of attrition. Highly Recommended
A new addition to the Images of War series, covering the Patton tanks of the Cold War. This is a fascinating book that reveals the development from the M47 to the M60 and the specialist support variants. Good text and outstanding images, a Must Read book.
A new addition to the Images of War series, extending the coverage of the Waffen SS. The text is confined to a brief but informative introduction and to photo captions. The strength of the book is in the outstanding selection of images.
Had this book only covered the Special Duties Service and its radio intercept stations, it would be a very important addition to the available knowledge on one of the most important but covert parts of activity during WWII. The author has covered much more including details of RAF Mosquito squadrons and her later service for the OSS. Most Highly Recommended.
This book has come to print partly because of a pact between two pilots. In the event of the diarist dying, his comrade would continue the diary. The number of American volunteers joining the RAF during the Great War was mostly due to impatience at the US sending warplanes to Europe. Highly Recommended.
World War 2 was the first war to include the widespread deliberate targeting of civilians, and particularly of children, anywhere in accessible enemy territory. Millions were evacuated from British cities to the greater safety of the countryside and the more remote areas. This large scale movement of people is reviewed in this study, using the voices of those who were there. Highly Recommended.
The title is slightly misleading because this book covers art applied to land, sea, and air vehicles of WWII, but also includes vehicle art in WWI and after WWII. The publisher has produced many books with large photographic content, reproducing in monochrome and full colour. This book falls into that category. The text flows and is very informative, but the illustration is essential and impressive. http://reviews.firetrench.com http://adn.firetrench.com http://bgn.firetrench.com http://nthn.firetrench.com Continue reading
A great story from a great lady. Few have had the privilege to fly a Spitfire. Even fewer have been women and now Mary Ellis flies a Spitfire again at 100 – Outstanding. This is an account by one of the young ladies who served their country in time of war, flying combat aircraft between factories, repair centres and RAF airfields, showing great courage. Just don’t miss this fantastic story. Very strongly recommended.
