    Osprey Publishing 2013; US$ 15.95

    The Japanese High Command realized that the loss of Okinawa would give the Americans a base for the invasion of Japan.

  • AV-8B Harrier II Units of Operation Iraqi Freedom I-VIby Lon Nordeen; Jim Laurier

  • 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...

  • Lockheed A-12by Paul Crickmore; Adam Tooby

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 15.95

    During the early years of the Cold War, the most effective way to gather strategic intelligence about the Soviet Union and its allies was manned overflight. Lockheed's U-2 was spectacularly successful in this role. Much to the concern of President Eisenhower, its shape meant that it could be tracked on Russian radars. Given the highly sensitive nature... more...
