Product code:  37586AVI
The Dornier Do 217 represented the refinement of German twin-engined bomber design, a progression from the earlier Do 17. From 1941, the Do 217 became the mainstay of the Luftwaffe's bomber arm in the West, equipping four Gruppen for operations over Britain. It carried out day and night attacks on British shipping, coastal targets, towns and industrial centres, both in formation and in lone attacks known to the German crews as 'Pirate' operations. These missions, though achieving some success, w...

Great Naval Battles of the Pacific War: The Official Admiralty Accounts Midway, Coral Sea, Java Sea, Guadalcanal and Leyte Gulf

Product code:  11686AVI
The key naval battles against Imperial Japan in the Pacific during the Second World War have been described many times by numerous diligent and skilful historians. Such histories are, of course, the products of many years, even decades, of accumulated knowledge, but also of a received consensus of how the war played out to its, seemingly, inevitable conclusion. That of course is not how it was perceived at the time. These accounts can never be superseded and never replaced. Written by naval offi...

Victory 1940 - The Battle of Britain as Never Seen Before

Product code:  70089AVI

Camera On 30: Henschel HS 126

Hitler's Air War in Spain - The Rise of the Luftwaffe

Product code:  84727AVI
Almost since the advent of warfare, civilians have suffered collateral damage, but the concept of Total War - a war without limits - only surfaced in the early part of the twentieth century. The idea of huge numbers of aircraft raining death upon defenceless cities was seen by many as not only barbaric but, in practical terms, quite unrealistic given the logistical challenges that would have to be overcome in order to put them into practice. Any complacency over the threat, however, was rudely s...

Short Sunderland: The Flying Porcupines in the Second World War

In 1933, the Air Ministry issued a specification for a general-purpose four-engine flying boat capable of operating from the outposts of the Empire. The result was the remarkable Sunderland, built by Short Brothers. This book covers the development of the Short Sunderland and its operations during and after the Second World War. The Sunderland's ability to engage six or more enemy fighters simultaneously earned it the Luftwaffe's nickname of the Flying Porcupine'. The aircraft's maid of all work...
