Land Rovers in British Military Service-
12407MIL
For anyone interested in the coil-sprung Land Rovers that have served (and still serve) with the British armed forces, this book is a must. It covers first-generation Range Rover and Discovery models, as well as the One Ten, Ninety and One Two Seven, their Defender successors and, of course the Wolf XD derivatives. Coverage deliberately ends at 2007 to respect current military sensibilities. This unique and extensively illustrated book describes and illustrates British military use and adaptations of these vehicles, and also contains comprehensive vehicle lists and contract details. The book is a sequel to British Military Land Rovers, the leaf-sprung models, by the same two authors (published by Herridge & Sons in 2015).

Africa@War 33: Showdown in Western Sah
90359AVI
The former colony of Spanish Sahara saw frequent outbursts of tribal and ethnic rebellions already while ruled by colonial authorities, in the late 19th and through early 20th Century. Its vastness and distances de-facto dictated the application of air power in response. While most of these attracted next to no attention in English-language media, at least the large-scale operations of the Spanish colonial authorities of the late 1950s became notable for the final combat deployment of the famous Messerschmitt Bf.109. Narby, their common history as former French colonies resulted in a short war between Algeria and Morocco, which in turn prompted an arms race that lasted well into the 1980s. Following much more action than was ever reported in the media, and amid growing resistance from natives and increasing international pressure, Spain withdrew from Spanish Sahara in 1975, indirectly opening a new chapter of this part of the world, which is going to be covered in Volume 2. Warfare in Western Sahara has in many ways become exemplary for modern-day counter-insurgency efforts in Africa and elsewhere. This is so in regards of this conflict being mis-declared as a part of some larger, external conflict - like the Cold War - in regards of the concept of an insurgency applying motorized forces to deliver often spectacular `hit-and-run' attacks; and in regards of a conventional military reacting with a combination of earth berms and air power. Illustrated by over 100 photographs, dozen of maps and 15 colour profiles, Showdown in Western Sahara, Volume 1 offers a fascinating study of the military aspects of this conflict, warfare strategies, tactics and experiences with different weapons systems.

Real Colours of WWII-Aircraft
00385AVI2
The Real Colours for aircraft models could not be introduced without releasing a special book devoted to this subject. Renowned researchers Maciej Góralczyk, Gerald T. Högl, Jürgen Kiroff, Nicholas Millman and Mikhail V. Orlov teamed up in order to produce the most up-to-date reference book on the aircraft colours of the main WWII adversaries: Germany, United States, Great Britain and Soviet Union. The resulting study is a comprehensive guide to the colours and camouflage schemes, presented on 292 pages and illustrated with 42 colour profiles, several document reprints, and 390 b/w and colour photos, many of which are very rare. Included is the latest information on the Luftwaffe’s late war colours, which have been reproduced as scale colours on the basis of the original paint factory recipes by Gerald T. Högl and Jürgen Kiroff. For the very first time, the unparalleled research on the Soviet Air Force colours done by Mikhail V. Orlov is introduced to the non-Russian readers. Nicholas Millman’s archival research brings us accurate reproduction and description of the colours used by the USAAF, US Navy and RAF/FAA.

FAQ 3: Frequently Asked Questions of%2
00286MIL2
This new Super-Book, like its predecessors in this same series of technical manuals called “FAQ”, is dedicated to modelling military vehicles and the techniques used for assembling, painting and weathering. The difference with the previous book is that we have moved on in the timeframe and this book is a complement of the previous ones. It also explains some new techniques that have appeared these last years, mainly to use in modern vehicles but that can be also used in vehicles of all eras. The most complete book for military vehicles edited until now. The materials that make up modern vehicles and weapons have changed considerably since World War II. Materials that were out of the question on a technological and industrial level back then are now commonplace. The use of these new materials and the manufacturing and assembly methods reflect on the way we paint and weather these models; they require a different approach. Like many other things in life, in the end the purpose is to take up new challenges. In this book we present some of those challenges.

Cold War 1945-1991 Vietnam''s Final
28456AVI
On March 30, 1972 some 30,000 North Vietnamese troops along with tanks and heavy artillery surged across the demilitarized zone into South Vietnam in the opening round of Hanoi’s Easter Offensive. By early May South Vietnamese forces were on the ropes and faltering. Without the support of U.S. combat troops – who were in their final stage of withdrawing from the country – the Saigon government was in danger of total collapse and with it any American hope of a negotiated settlement to the war. In response, President Richard Nixon called for an aggressive, sustained bombardment of North Vietnam. Code-named Operation Linebacker I, the interdiction effort sought to stem the flow of men and material southward, as well as sever all outside supply lines in the first new bombing of the North Vietnamese heartland in nearly four years. To meet the American air armada, North Vietnamese MiG fighters took to the skies and surface-to-missiles and anti-aircraft fire filled the air from May to October over Hanoi and Haiphong. With the failure of its Easter Offensive to achieve military victory, Hanoi reluctantly returned to the negotiating table in Paris. However, as the peace talks teetered on the edge of collapse in mid-December 1972, Nixon played his trump card: Operation Linebacker II. The resulting twelve-day Christmas bombing campaign from 18–30 December unleashed the full wrath of American air power. More than 2,200 attack sorties, including 724 B-52 sorties alone, were flown by Air Force and Navy aircraft delivering 15,287 tons of bombs that laid waste to the North Vietnamese capital. Railyards, military storage depots, power stations, and bridges, as well as radar and communication sites, airfields, and anti-aircraft defences were pummelled day and night. Linebacker II would prove to be decisive: a ceasefire agreement was signed on 23 January 1973.

Tankograd The First T-34 Birth of a
TMFT34MIL
The Soviet T-34 medium tank was undoubtedly the most important tank design of World War 2. In retrospect, one can go as far as to say "it was the tank that won the war". On the other hand, it was not an easy birth of a legend, as its revolutionary new tank design was not widely embraced when it was first proposed yet ultimately had to be rushed into production. This publication describes, in hitherto unseen detail and research, the birth of the legendary T-34 through its first series production Model 1940. It starts with the path that led to the first prototypes, covers the many details of its production models and, finally, follows it into action during those so decisive first five months of the Great Patriotic War, today most commonly known by the German name for the invasion, Operation Barbarossa. During this campaign, both the T-34 and KV tank came as a complete surprise to the advancing German Wehrmacht, and on many encounters the two new Soviet tanks designs slowed down the German momentum, eventually to an extent that the objective of Moscow could not be taken before winter arrived. Over the past decade, the author devoted himself to the many technical details of T-34-76 models, indeed closely looking at each and every "nut and bolt" and is now able to provide the first ever in-depth research on the development, technology and combat history of the T-34 Model 1940, the first version of a legendary tank family.
