  • F6F Hellcat vs A6M Zero-senby Edward Young; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 15.95

    In the key Pacific War battles of the Marianas Turkey Shoot, Leyte Gulf, and in and around Japan itself (from late 1943 through to VJ-Day) the principal fighters involved were the F6F Hellcat and the A6M5/7 Zero-sen. The former was Grumman's successor to the pugnacious Wildcat, and its creation was shaped by the combat experiences of Naval Aviators... more...

  • M1 Abrams vs T-72 Uralby Steven Zaloga; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2011; US$ 14.49

    The Gulf War bore witness to a number of deadly encounters between these two great adversaries. Heavily armored, highly mobile and capable of killing at over 2500m the M1 Abrams is, to this day, a veritable fighting machine. Superior to both Iraq's Soviet era T-55 and T-62 tanks, nearly all sources claim that no Abrams tank has ever been destroyed... more...

  • Nieuport 11/16 Bébé vs Fokker Eindeckerby Jon Guttman; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 18.95

    The Nieuport 11 boasts an important place in the technology race against German aircraft in World War I aerial warfare. It eventually led Nieuport to produce the first plane flown in large numbers in aerial combat by the United States. The appearance in July 1915 of Germany's Fokker E I, armed with interrupter gear that allowed its machine gun to... more...

  • Spitfire V vs C.202 Folgoreby Donald Nijboer; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 18.95

    The inability of the Italians and Germans to invade Malta proved decisive for Allied victory in the Mediterranean during World War II, as the islands provided the Allies with a base from which to project air power. Early Italian efforts to pound the islands into submission were supplemented by major German forces from January 1942 and in a few weeks... more...

  • F6F Hellcat Aces of VF-9by Edward Young; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 15.95

    After Pearl Harbor, the US Navy's VF-9 carrier fighter group formed, seeing action in North Africa, The Marshalls, Kwajelein, Truk, the Marianas Turkey Shoot and on to Tokyo and Okinawa. VF-9 was activated in March 1942 as part of Carrier Air Group (CAG) 9, one of the many air groups the US Navy was hurriedly forming in the aftermath of the Japanese... more...

  • USAF F-4 Phantom II MiG Killers 1965-68by Peter Davies; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    The USAF introduced the F-4C Phantom II into the Vietnam War (1955-1975) in April 1965 from Ubon RTAB, Thailand. The F-4C/D soon became the Air Force's principal fighter over the North, destroying 85 MiGs by the close of 1968. This book describes how the USAF turned a gunless naval interceptor into an opponent to the more nimble VPAF MiGs. It explains... more...

  • Iranian F-4 Phantom II Units in Combatby Farzad Bishop; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    Different versions of the jet have provided the backbone of the frontline strength of the Iranian air force since the 1970s, and whole generations of Iranian pilots and ground personnel have been trained to fly and maintain them. Indeed, the type bore the brunt of active combat operations during the long war with Iraq. Iranian F-4 Phantom IIs were... more...

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

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    In the 1970s the USMC bought the AV-8A Harrier from the UK to test V/STOL concepts for close air support. A successful funding battle was subsequently fought in the 1980s to secure military, political and economic support to expand this concept to develop and field the second generation AV-8B Harrier II from the late 1980s onward. The AV-8B was, and... more...

  • US Navy PBY Catalina Units of the Atlantic Warby Ragnar Ragnarsson; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    Several books have been written about US naval air patrol operations in World War II (1939-1945), but none do full justice to the role played by patrol squadrons of the US Navy in the longest, most bitterly fought campaign of the war, the Battle of the Atlantic. From the Arctic to the Equator, anti-submarine aircraft of the US Navy patrolled both sides... more...

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

    Osprey Publishing 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 (1967), but it soon formed the backbone of the IAF's ground-attack force. From 1969 to 1970... more...
