This is a worthy addition to the highly popular Images of War series. Himmler had hoped to eventually replace the German Army with SS troops. He failed to achieve that but the Waffen SS became an important element in the German land forces – Highly Recommended.
The author is a former Tornado pilot who has researched and spoken with former comrades to produce an excellent and unique account of the Tornado GR1 and its part in the 1990-1991 Gulf War. The Tornado was born as a multi-role swing-wing combat aircraft for use in Europe against any Soviet threats. Later marks are still in frontline service but the story of the GR1 has not previously been told well – Highly Recommended.
The authors are both experienced tactical pilots who have served in the USAF & Schreiner flew F-4G Wild Weasels during the desert campaign. This is a very important book that looks into the largely untold story of the electronic war that is critical to modern air warfare – Highly Recommended.
This book is both incredibly good value for money, and the definitive account of the design and development of the iconic Vulcan V-Bomber. Anyone who has seen and heard a Vulcan at low level will never forget this fantastic aircraft – Most Highly Recommended.
The author served as a navigator in the RAF and flew with the Phantom from Germany, also serving in Conversion training units, and commanded the Falklands Phantom detachment. The text provides a detailed view of Phantom operations during the Cold War and is supported by a great many photographs through the body of the book, including some stunning full colour images – Most Highly Recommended.
The publisher has been producing a number of aviation history series that feature rare archive images. This book is one of those books and has a fine photo content. The photographs in this case mostly show the image from the gunsight, or more accurately gun camera – Highly Recommended.
This book corrects the serious neglect of its subject. The author has demonstrated that a historian needs only dedication and hard work to research a subject and present it in print. The result is a unique and definitive work that will be of enormous value to other historians, enthusiasts and the families of German WWI POWs – Highly Recommended.
With the huge number of histories of WWII, a truly unique book is extremely rare. This is one such book. The author has assembled a diary written by her late father, a collection of his photographs, and a collection of family letters, which she has woven into an enchanting book that tells a unique story – Most Highly Recommended.
This is a most interesting book, both for its content and the way in which the autobiography has been salvaged and updated by Vickers’ commentary. Blinker Hall was one of the great heroes of WWI but almost totally unknown because he was Director Naval Intelligence – Most Highly Recommended.
