Caudron CR.714 C1 Cyclone: The Ultimate Story

Product code:  21269AVI
This book describes in previously untold detail the story of the development and service of the Caudron Cyclone in the French and Finnish Air Forces during World War II. While the concept of lightweightA" fighters was examined in many countries before and during World War II, the little Caudron was one of the very few to see production and service. On operations, the plane's limitations were cruelly exposed but that did not stop its pilots (French, Polish and Finnish) from doing their very best ...

Images of War: Air War Over North Africa - USAAF Ascendant - Rare Photographs from Wartime Archives

Product code:  81792AVI
The year 1942 began badly for the Allies. German U-boats were indiscriminately sinking merchant shipping off America's east coast and in the Caribbean. Allied fortunes were no better in the Far East under the relentless Japanese advance. America was struggling to hold the Philippines, while the Soviet Union was fighting a series of bitter winter battles against Hitler's Wehrmacht at the gates of Moscow. General Erwin Rommel's surprise offensive in North Africa brought a renewed threat to the Mid...

Air Campaign 12: Ploesti 1943 The Great Raid on Hitler's Romanian Oil Refineries

Product code:  31804AVI

At the time, the Romanian Ploesti oil fields produced about a third of all Axis oil, and was Germany's single most important fuel source. In the summer of 1943, the USAAF decided to stage a major raid on Ploesti from air bases in Libya. The resulting Operation Tidal Wave raid on 1 August 1943 was one of the costliest to date, losing 53 aircraft, about a third of the starting...

Duel 98 German Flak Defences vs Allied Heavy Bombers 1942-45

Product code:  36717AVI
The air battle that raged over Germany has often been described as a battle between Allied and German fighters but what has been frequently missed by historians on all sides is the impact of German anti-aircraft defences (flak). Though often dismissed as ineffective and a waste of valuable material and personnel, the German flak arm made a major contribution to the defence of the Third Reich - at least half of the American aircraft shot down over Germany fell to flak, and according to the RAF Of...

Luftwaffe in Africa 1941-1943

Product code:  07458AVI
Adolf Hitler considered the Mediterranean an unimportant theater of the war, leaving it to the troops of Benito Mussolini who wanted to dominate the "Mare Nostro." Nevertheless, when the Italian army was defeated on the Libyan-Egyptian border at the beginning of 1941, the Fuhrer was forced to help his ally by sending an air detachment first to Sicily, then Africa. This Illustrated series examines that tiny expeditionary force, solely devoted to protecting Italian possessions in North Africa. Whe...
