ZEPPELINS OVER THE MIDLANDS

(Subject: Aviation - General) On 31st January 1916 nine Zeppelins of the Imperial German Navy bombed the Midlands, opening a strategic bombing campaign designed to cripple British war production. It ended in total failure. The main target was Liverpool but none of the Zeppelins reached it. On foggy Monday night several major Midlands towns were bombed and 70 people killed. A lot is known about the military aspects of the raids but much less is known about what happened on the ground. Through intensive research the author has been able to identify many of the victims and give the full story of these events for the first time.

By Christopher Shores and Giovanni Massimello

(Subject: Aviation - General) The third volume in this series returns to November 1942 to explain the background to the first major Anglo-American venture – Operation Torch, the invasion of French North Africa. It deals with the fratricidal combats which followed the initial landings in Morocco and Algeria for several days.

STUKAS OVER THE MEDITERRANEAN, 1940-1945

By Peter C. Smith

(Subject: Aviation - General) The Ju 87 Stuka dominated the opening campaigns of World War II. It was a primary weapon of German Blitzkrieg tactics and the concept of lightning warfare. Together with the panzer, it transformed air and land warfare, with countries falling in days and weeks, rather than after campaigns lasting years. With more than 100 photographs and detailed commentary, this book examines the role of German and Italian Ju 87s in such diverse campaigns as the attack on Yugoslavia, the battle for Crete and operations by the night flying squadrons.

By Jeffrey Ethell

(Subject: Aviation - General) Although the Luftwaffe achieved a great deal of success in North Africa between 1940 and 1943, it was hampered by the constant demand for men and machines elsewhere, logistical problems, such as a crippling lack of fuel, and the harsh desert conditions.

THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN: AN EPIC CONFLICT REVISITED

By Christer Bergström

(Subject: Aviation - General) Published for the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this is the most thorough examination of the topic ever written. Illustrated with maps and rare photos, plus a colour section depicting the aircraft, this impressive book lays out the conflict as seldom seen before. The battle was a turning in point in military history, and arguably in the fate of the world. By late summer 1940 Germany had conquered all its opponents on the continent, including the British Army. Hitler had only one remaining objective - the British Isles themselves. However, before he could invade, his Luftwaffe needed to wipe the Royal Air Force from the skies. Thus took place history's first strategic military campaign conducted in the air alone. There is no doubt that it was the unparalleled efforts of The Few that won the battle.

CARRIER OPERATIONS IN WORLD WAR II

By J. D. Brown and Editor David Hobbs

(Subject: Aviation - General) Between 1939 and 1945 the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm grew from a small force into a powerful strategic weapon. British carrier-based aircraft fought in the Home, Mediterranean, Eastern and British Pacific Fleets. Operations in the Pacific between 1941 and 1945, were part of the greatest maritime war in history. By March 1945 the United States Fifth Fleet with its associated Marine Corps formations was probably the most efficient and effective instrument of war deployed in the pre-nuclear age. This new work contains material from two volumes from 1968 and 1974, merged with notes for a third which David Brown prepared but never published before his death.

By Graham M. Simons

(Subject: Aviation - General) The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was the primary bomber used by the USAAF in the firebombing campaign against Japan in the final months of World War Two. Famously, it carried out the atomic attacks that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki and also served in large numbers in the Korean War. The B-29 remained in service with the USAF throughout the 1950s, as well as with the Royal Air Force who named it the 'Washington'.

A HISTORY OF THE MEDITERRANEAN AIR WAR, 1940-1945: VOLUME TWO. NORTH AFRICAN DESERT FEB 1942-MAR1943

By Christopher Shores and Giovanni Massimello

(Subject: Aviation - General) This volume picks up the story as the 8th Army was forced back to the Gazala area, roughly mid-way between the Cyrenaican/Tripolitanian border of Libya and the frontier with Egypt. It covers the army's disastrous defeatin June 1942, and the loss of Tobruk. The costly efforts of the Allied air forces to protect the retreating British and Commonwealth troops is examined in depth. This period was ameliorated somewhat by the arrival of the first Spitfires. Rommel’s Afrika Korps was defeated at Alam el Halfa at the start of September, and then at El Alamein in October. Joined by the first units of the United States Army Air Force, the Allies began to achieve a growing ascendency over those of the Axis.
