  • Mustang Aces of the 357th Fighter Groupby Chris Bucholtz; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    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... more...

  • 4th Fighter Group - Debden Eaglesby Chris Bucholtz; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 16.95

    Formed around a nucleus of pilots already seasoned by their experience as volunteers in the RAF's Eagle Squadrons, the 4th Fighter Group was established in England in October 1942. Initially flying Spitfires, the Debden Eagles went on to fly the P-47 and P-51, becoming in July 1943, the first Eighth Air Force fighter group to penetrate German air space.... more...

  • Aces of the 325th Fighter Groupby Tom Ivie; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 15.95

    American pilots flew P-40 Warhawk, P-47 Thunderbolt, and P-51 Mustang fighters over Noth Africa, Sicily, and Italy in the World War II Mediterranean Theater of Operations as part of the 325th Fighter Group. The 325th FG was activated under General Order number 50 on 30 July 1942 and set up training operations at Theodore F Greene Field in Providence,... more...

  • Morane-Saulnier MS.406 Acesby Kari Stenman; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 22.95

    French World War II fighter design was cut short by the fall of France, but the MS.406 also saw service in Vichy French colonies and Finland. The MS.406 was an important aircraft not only because it was built in larger numbers than any other French fighter of the period, but also because it was the first modern fighter in the Armée de l'Air inventory.... more...

  • Iranian F-14 Tomcat Units in Combatby Tom Cooper; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    So formidable an opponent did the Iraqi airforce consider the F-14 that during the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988), they ordered their pilots not to engage F-14s and the presence of one in an area was usually enough to empty it of Iraqi aircraft. Officially losses where tiny; only one F-14 was lost in aerial combat (to a MiG-21), one to a control problem... more...

  • C-47/R4D Units of the ETO and MTOby David Isby; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    The C-47 units of the USAAF were an integral part of some of the most dramatic episodes of World War II (1939-1945): the airborne assaults in North Africa, Sicily, Normandy, southern France, Operation Market Garden and the crossing of the Rhine. The mass fratricide off Sicily, the night drop for D-Day and the Bastogne supply missions are also covered,... more...

  • C-47/R4D Skytrain Units of the Pacific and CBIby David Isby; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    C-47 is an aircraft that remains a popular favourite and an acknowledged classic design, carrying out missions every bit as strategically important and as dramatic for the aircrew as those of the fighters and bombers. The C-47's wartime operations paved the way for post-war military air transport. It also demonstrated how the USAAF was able to invest... more...

  • B-2A Spirit Units in Combatby Thomas Withington; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    The B-2A ?Spirit? was an aircraft conceived to fight the Cold War (1946-1991) but which has proved invaluable to both the ?New World Order? and more recently the ?War on Terrorism?. The combination of low-observability, precision strike, range and payload flexibility has made the ?Spirit? the weapon of choice when America hits its enemies at the start... more...

  • Down to Earth Strafing Aces of the Eighth Air Forceby William Hess; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 15.95

    'Like The Long Reach, Down to Earth is a message from the battle at its height, told in their own words by the men who fight' - this is how Brig-Gen Francis Griswold, VIII Fighter Command, ends his introduction to this book. His official endorsement reveals just how important a document Down to Earth was to the teaching of tyro fighter pilots... more...

  • 354th Fighter Groupby William Hess; Chris Davey

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 16.95

    ?I think the success of the 354th as the leading group in the European theatre for aerial victories is due to several things. First was the initial training of the squadrons before deployment to England. Colonel Ken Martin nurtured the group from its infancy, and all the excellence that later showed through could be placed at his doorstep. Despite... more...
