Terence Dalton Ltd, Lavenham, Suffolk, 1990, first UK edition, hard bound (lacks dj), , VG CONDITION , 7 x 9, x, 180 pages, illustrations, appendices, index. -----------------------------------The delightful Kenley Common had definite advantages when in 1917 the Royal Flying Corps was seeking sites for Aircraft Acceptance Parks, which were to be responsible for assembling and testing aeroplanes destined for squadrons in France. Opposition to the takeover of the common under the Defence of the Realm Act was swept aside and what seemed likely to be a temporary establishment was quickly set up as an important link in the chain of supply. ---------------------------------------After the signing of the Peace Treaty in 1919 it was made clear that because its situation "rendered it of great importance in connection with the future air defence of London" Kenley would continue in being as a Royal Air Force station, and between the wars biplane fighters based at Kenley became, well known ...

London, Ian Allan, 1978. first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11, glossy page stock, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 128 pages, prof. illustrated in B&W photos, drawings, and several pages of color profiles. ............................................... In this second volume of their penetrating survey of Bomber Command's aircraft in World War II, James Goulding and Philip Moyes cover the introduction into service of the great classic heavy bombers — the Lancaster, the Stirling and the Halifax — as well as the development of the types which, had the war continued, would have succeeded them. In their first volume the authors dealt with the evolution of the bomber aircraft which, though designed in the peace of the mid-thirties, enabled Bomber Command to carry the battle to the enemy in the desperate early days of the war. In this volume they examine how the lessons of that period influenced the design of the later bomber types and how British industry faced up to the ... Read more

London 1993, Ian Allan, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1/2, glossy page stock, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 128 pages, well illustrated. ------------------------------------------------It was Winston Churchill who summed up the importance of the role of Fighter Command during the dark days of the Battle of Britain, when all that stood between Britain and potential defeat were the squadrons of Fighter Command, when he commented that 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few'. The 'Few', the men of Fighter Command, whose careers were graphically portrayed in the film 'The Battle of Britain' were based at airfields, like Tangmere and Biggin Hill, that have entered into legend. ----------------------------------------------------In his latest book, which complements ideally his earlier volume of RAF bomber airfields of World War 2, Jonathan Falconer examines the history of the various Fighter Command bases occupied by ...

London 1987, Arms & Armour press, UK first edition, , hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6x9, 288 pages, illus, maps, appendice, bibliog, index. ------------------------- The Battle of Britain - the first great battle between nations to be decided entirely in the air - was a struggle between very unequal opponents. The RAF's trained fighter pilots were inexperienced and in short supply; its fighter tactics were outmoded; and its most numerous fighter was inferior in both performance and number to that of the Luftwaffe. To overcome such handicaps in the heat of battle, the burden of responsibility fell upon the pilots and their squadron commanders. -------------------------------Many books have been written about the Battle of Britain; few have examined the course of the conflict from the point of view of the fighter squadrons themselves. Squadrons were the basic combat units in RAF Fighter Command; their combat effectiveness was a factor of crucial importance tr ... Read more

The history of helicopters in the Royal Air Force starts at the point when they were first employed operationally in 1950 in Malaya. The earlier period, when autogiros gave way to helicopters with no real operational capability, is outlined in the Prologue.'-------------------------------------------------------- Thereafter the history is divided into four phases, the first (1950-52) dealing mainly with the Casualty Evacuation Flight in the Far East, which proved the readiness of the helicopter to enter the field of military operations and laid the foundation for the subsequent expansion.--------------------------------------------------------------- In the second phase (1953-60) an enthusiastic growth of the helicopter forces was neverth ...

William Morrow & Co. New York 1963, 1st Edition. VG/VG. condition, 5 1/2 x 8, hard bound in dj, 272 pages. --------------------------JOHN JENNINGS has long been known for his masterful tales of brave ships and daring sailors. For the present novel his canvas is the broad sweep of the Western Pacific and Indian Oceans. In these waters, during the early days of the First World War, a single German raider, the light cruiser Emden, kept the whole Allied fleet in turmoil. Here is a dramatic retelling of her last fateful cruise. It is also the poignant story of her crew and a captain who still believed that warfare was conducted by rules and that there was a code of honor even between bitter enemies. Putting out from Tsingtao, China, her home port in August 1914, the Emden was soon detached from the main German fleet. Her mission: to operate as a solitary raider against Allied shipping in the Orient. As the record of her prizes mounted so did the wild rumors about the Emden's daring feats and extr ... Read more

David & Charles 1988, paper reprint edition, 5 x 8, VG CONDITION, 270 pages, illus, index. ......................................................................... Highly professional crack troops are as old as war itself. This book tells the stories of some of the most exciting of the raids carried out by well trained surprise strike forces. These effective raids have often altered the course of war, out of all proportion to the size of the forces involved. Richard Garrett provides linking commentaries with each raid and this puts them into perspective and adds up to a concise history of this branch of warfare. A book that reveals the drama, horror and excitement of war at its personal level, it traces the development of the military strategy that Churchill called 'the butcher and the bolt policy: • Illustrated with authentic photographs • Exciting real-life accounts • Strategies and military tactics analysed and explained

London 1997, Arms & Armour Press, UK First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11, 160 pp, 250 illus. ------------------------------------------------------ The Allied bombing campaign directed at Nazi Germany's war economy was a unique event in history and will forever remain so. It was the first time that military forces had been able to attempt such destruction from the skies and, with advancing technology, aviation has not required to use such numbers of bomber aircraft to achieve the same aims since. The strategic offensive was not a well photographed event. Official film of the aircraft, the personnel and the raids were limited to what could be undertaken in the frenzy of live war and during what were, on many occasions, night-time flights. Private use of cameras was much frowned upon but did exist and enabled subsequent generations to better appreciate how the bombing squadrons operated. This is the purpose of this pictorial account - to give a flavour of t ... Read more
