Focke-Wulf Ta 154 Revised Edition

Product code:  09945AVI
This is the story of one the Third Reich’s most advanced night fighters – the Ta 154. The driving force behind its gestation was Professor Kurt Tank, designer of the Fw 190. He and a small team of designers and engineers combined state-of-the-art technology with elegant aerodynamics to create an innovative and potent warplane. Inspired by the British de Havilland DH 98, in 1943, the German Air Ministry issued a specification for an all-wood, fast attack-bomber to be powered by Jumo 211 engines. ...

The consolidated PBY Catalina was probably the most versatile and successful flying boat/amphibian ever built, serving not just with the US Army, Navy and Coast Guard during the Second World War, but also with the air forces of Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, with the Danes, Free French and Norwegians as well as in Brazil, Chile, Indonesia and elsewhere.

Product code:  92783AVI
This volume is the last of five volumes to cover 1944, a year where the tables finally turned against the Nachtjagd, but not before it had inflicted terrible losses upon RAF Bomber Command.

Hitler's Strategic Bombing Offensive on the Eastern Front: Blitz Over the Volga 1943

Product code:  89891AVI
Germany was never able to match the power of the Allied air forces with their great four-engine bombers, the Lancasters, Liberators and Flying Fortresses. Indeed, many have ascribed the defeat of Germany in the Second World to its lack of a strategic bombing force. There were, though, two occasions when the Luftwaffe twin-engine bombers undertook strategic objectives on a large scale. The first of these was the Blitz of 1940-41, in which the Luftwaffe attempted to wreck Britain industrial and mi...

Warpaint Special No.5 North American Aviation P-51 Mustang and Derivatives

Product code:  WPS05AVI
North American Aviation's P-51 Mustang is right up there in the top echelon of fighters of the second world war. However, without the Britain desperate need for fighter aircraft this iconic machine might never have existed. Although the first prototype was damaged after a ground loop during initial test flights it was quickly repaired.

Hawker Typhoon

Product code:  70904AVI
Although first designed as a fighter, during the fighting in and over Europe during 1944 and 1945, the Hawker Typhoon gained a tremendous reputation and true fame as a ground-attack aircraft and tank-buster. This offensive ground-attack work is well known but tends to overshadow the type’s successes operating from 1942 as a true fighter based in the UK. Many books that document the Typhoon cover it in conjunction with its successor, the Hawker Tempest. However, this work, fully illustrated with ...

Fighters of the Dying Sun: The Most Advanced Japanese Fighters of the Second World War

Product code:  58119AVI
The first B-29 flew over Tokyo on 1 November 1944. It was a photographic reconnaissance aircraft ironically named 'Tokyo Rose'. The Ki.44 fighters of the 47th Sentai took off to intercept it but as it turned out the Superfortress flew at such an altitude and speed that they could not reach it. The Ki-44-II-Otsu had been specifically designed for this type of interception and could reach the astonishing rate of climb of 5,000m in four minutes, however it was not good enough. During the following ...

Air Campaign 22 Norway 1940 The Luftwaffe's Scandinavian Blitzkrieg

Product code:  47454AVI
The German invasion of Norway was a pivotal moment in modern warfare, the first joint campaign that featured air power as an equal element of all operations. It was, in fact, the superior use of their air force that gave the Germans the decisive margin of victory and ensured the failure of the Allied counter-offensive in central Norway in April and May 1940. All aspects of air power were employed in Norway, from long-range bombing and reconnaissance to air transport, with the Luftwaffe's ability...
