Battle of Britain - Prelude - Air Combat Archive 18 Jun-9 Jul 1940

Product code:  92776AVI
Sidelined by the retrospective decision to start the Battle on 10th July, the period of three weeks between the final withdrawal of the RAF from France and the official start of the Battle of Britain has been almost completely ignored by historians. Here, for the first time, those early combats, fought day and night over the UK, are fully detailed in the usual warts and all style, giving the reader a possible insight into why Dowding decided that the Battle only started on 10th July despite the...

This ground-breaking stud...

Product code:  65984AVI
In 1942 the air defence of the northern Australian frontier town of Darwin was operated by airmen from the United States. That year was very nearly the end of Australia as a country. To those men the present nation owes a debt. A massive Japanese attack on Darwin on 19 February had left the town and its air base in ruins. An understrength squadron of USAAC P-40E Warhawks fought a gallant defence but was all but wiped out. Northern Australia was now at the mercy of Imperial Japanese Navy Betty bo...
