The devastating effect of these... more...

    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...

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 15.95

    Unable to conduct ground operations on the European continent until Allied strength was fully marshalled for a full-scale invasion, the British government based its grand strategy on a protracted campaign of aerial bombardment of Germany's cities in order to bring the Third Reich to its knees. At the heart of this strategy was the emerging technology... more...

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 13.95

    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...
