  • A-6 Intruder Units of the Vietnam Warby Rick Morgan; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 15.95

    Designed in the years following the Korean War and then manufactured for over 30 years starting in 1960, the A-6 quickly became the most capable attack aircraft in the US Navy's stable. The first squadron, VA-75, made its initial deployment directly into combat in south-east Asia in 1965, and, over the next eight years, ten US Navy and four Marine... more...

  • Israeli A-4 Skyhawk Units in Combatby Shlomo Aloni; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    The light and agile A-4 Skyhawk was the first modern American jet to be offered to the Israeli Air Force, marking the point where the US took over from France as Israel's chief military supplier. Deliveries began too late for the A-4 to fight in the Six-Day War, but it soon formed the backbone of the IAF's ground-attack force. From 1969 to 1970 it... more...

  • F-86 Sabre vs MiG-15: Korea 1950-53by Doug Dildy; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    With the North Korean People's Air Force virtually wiped out in the opening weeks of the Korean War, and the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force not yet ready for combat operations, the Soviets reluctantly allowed their swept-wing MiG-15s to support the communist logistics channels from China into North Korea. The devastating effect of these... more...

  • AV-8B Harrier II Units of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Stormby Lon Nordeen; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 15.95

    The AV-8B is the only tactical aircraft that can deploy with Marine forces on amphibious assault ships and provide air cover and close air support separate from large deck aircraft carriers. When Iraq invaded Kuwait in August 1990, a coalition of nations launched Operation Desert Shield in order to defend Saudi Arabia, and the Harrier II was among... more...

  • P-40 Warhawk Aces of the Pacificby Carl Molesworth; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    The first USAAF fighters to engage the Japanese in World War 2, a handful of P-40s rose to defend Pearl Harbor from attack on the morning of 7 December 1941. Warhawk units were also heavily involved in the ill-fated fight to stem invading Japanese forces in the Philippines and Java between December 1941 and April 1942 and again in the Gilbert and... more...

  • 23rd Fighter Groupby Carl Molesworth; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 16.95

    Famous for the fearsome sharksmouths that adorned their planes, the 23rd FG fought a guerrilla war against the Japanese, steadily moving pilots and aircraft from one remote air base in China to another to keep the enemy off balance. Because China could only be supplied by air from India, there were constant shortages of aircraft, fuel and ammunition... more...

  • P-40 Warhawk Aces of the MTOby Carl Molesworth; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    Thrown into action following the Torch landings of late 1942, the 'green' American pilots flying the obsolescent P-40F suffered cruelly at the hands of seasoned German fighter pilots flying superior machines. Those that survived learnt quickly, and a handful of Warhawk pilots succeeded in making ace by the time the Axis forces surrendered in North... more...

  • Israeli F-4 Phantom II Acesby Shlomo Aloni; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    The American manufactured F-4 Phantom II was used by the Israelis in air-to-ground missions, as an attack aircraft, and air-to-air missions as a fighter. Despite performing both roles with equal success the Israeli reliance on the Mirage III and Nesher delta fighters meant that the F-4 was used most regularly in its air-to-ground role. The kill total... more...

  • 57th Fighter Group - First in the Blueby Carl Molesworth; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 16.95

    Organized in January 1941, just as the United States was building up military forces for its inevitable entry into World War II, the 57th Fighter Group was the first USAAF fighter unit to go into action in North Africa. It went on to establish a number of other 'firsts' during its illustrious combat history in this theatre. Flying P-40 Warhawks, the... more...

  • A-10 Thunderbolt II Units of Operation Enduring Freedom 2002-07by Gary Wetzel; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    A relic of the Cold War, the A-10 Thunderbolt II first saw action in Afghanistan during the near-disastrous Operation Anaconda campaign in March 2002, initially flying from an airfield in Pakistan and then from Bagram.
