  • The US Eighth Air Force in Europeby Martin Bowman

    Pen and Sword 2013; US$ 9.99

  • General Dynamics F-111 Aardvarkby Peter Davies; Henry Morshead

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 15.95

    No project combined radical innovation and political furore quite like the F-111 program. It was intended as the world's biggest, most expensive defence procurement plan when it began in 1962. The aim was 'commonality'; the equipment of the USAF, US Navy and several foreign customers with a single type of fighter. It produced a superb strike aircraft... more...

    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 15.95

    An improved version of the Allison V-1710 engine gave rise to the Curtiss H-87, which began life in 1941 as the P-40D and featured a completely redesigned fuselage. The shorter and deeper nose of the new fighter gave it a decidedly snub-nosed appearance compared to the earlier P-40 models. Curtiss continued to tweak the H-87 for the next... more...

    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.

  • 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.
