Legends of Warfare: Avro Lancaster: RAF Bomber Command's Heavy Bomber in World War II

Product code:  58456AVI
The Avro Lancaster was the Royal Air Force's main four-engine bomber in World War II. Its superb design, overall performance, and load-carrying capacity proved key factors in successfully prosecuting the nocturnal bombing offensive against Hitler's industrial and military base. With its ability to carry up to 16,000 pounds in explosives and incendiaries, specialist Lancasters could also deliver the 12,000-pound "Tallboy" and 22,000-pound "Grand Slam" bombs that took out key targets.

Legends of Warfare: SBD Dauntless Douglas's US Navy and Marine Corps Dive-Bomber in World War II

Product code:  58463AVI
The Douglas Dauntless was the US Navy's frontline dive-bomber in the early days of WWII. Even after the larger and more powerful Helldiver joined the fleet in the later stages of the war, the Dauntless remained in the fray, flying from the decks of escort carriers, which were too small to permit the operation of the later aircraft, as well as continuing to serve from the decks of fleet carriers. The Dauntless took part in many of the most notable battles of the war in the Pacific, including Cora...

The Bell P39 Airacobra and P63 Kingcobra Fighters Soviet Service During World War II

Product code:  56803AVI
Under the Lend-Lease agreement with the US during WWII, the Soviet Union received large quantities of war materiel, including many aircraft; the Bell P-39 Airacobra takes a special place among them. The P-39 was dismissed as hardly suitable for combat both by the US and England, who turned it over in large numbers to the USSR. Soviet pilots had different views, though, and achieved excellent results while flying the type; over twenty Soviet aces flew the P-39. As air combat over the Russian fro...

F4U Corsair 1940-64 du Prototype au F4U-7

Product code:  84752AVI
With more than 12 000 built in six main versions and used by some air forces until the 1970s, the emblematic aircraft of above all the Pacific war, and a television star, the Chance Vought F4U Corsair was undoubtedly one of the most famous aircraft in aviation history.

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.
