Extremes of Fortune: From Great War to Great Escape - The Story of Herbert Martin Massey, CBE, DSO, MC

Product code:  12881AVI
Herbert Martin Massey was by any measure, a remarkable man. He was wounded three times in three separate conflicts, the first of which, in the First World War, almost killed him.

Defiant: The Untold Story of the Battle of Britain

Product code:  43556AVI

This two-seat gun-turret fighter is, argues Verkaik, the forgotten fighter of Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain; the effectiveness as well as the courage of its crews is overlooked in standard accounts. To advance his case, he notes that a Defiant squadron still holds the record for the number of enemy aircraft shot down in a single day, with a claimed figure of 38'Times'Robert Verkaik tells the story of t...

P-51B Mustang: North American's Bastard Stepchild that Saved the Eighth Air Force

Product code:  39664AVI
During World War II, the United States Army Air Corps was led by a cadre of officers who believed implicitly that military aviation, particularly fast heavy bombers at high altitude, would be able to destroy strategic enemy targets during daylight with minimal losses. However, by 1942 the Flying Fortress was proving vulnerable to Luftwaffe fighters. This title charts the United States Army Air Force's struggle to develop a Long-Range Escort which would enable them to achieve the Combined Bomber ...
