Legends of Warfare: B26 Marauder Martinas Medium Bomber in World War II

Product code:  56643AVI
Even today the Martin B-26 Marauder continues to look sleek and streamlined. Although receiving less wartime publicity than America's other medium of WWII, the B-25, in the European theatre the B-26 delivered twice the tonnage of bombs and had a lower loss rate. This volume explores the history of this oft-overlooked but widely used aircraft.

The P-38 story by focusing on the early models of this historic fighteraXP-38 through P-38H. Each type is examined through carefully researched archival photos, as well as photographs of currently preserved examples.

610 (County of Chester) Auxiliary Air Force Squadron 1936-1940

Product code:  57143AVI
610 (County of Chester) Squadron was formed in February 1936 as a bomber squadron. With personnel recruited from the local area for the expanding Auxiliary Air Force, these `weekend fliers' were moulded into a cohesive fighting unit at Hooton Park, Cheshire. However, as the Second World War loomed, 610 Squadron transferred to Fighter Command, ultimately operating the iconic Supermarine Spitfire. Flying from Gravesend, 610 Squadron suffered seven pilots killed and one wounded whilst desperately p...

White Series: Bulgarian Fighter Colours 1919-1948 Vol 1

Product code:  58181AVI
Bulgaria was arguably the historically most underrated Axis ally that actually fought the Allies during World War II. It did face its fair share of warfare, owing to the combat activity of its fighter air force against the armada of US bombers and their fighter escorts in 1943 and 1944. Then, following an about-face in early September 1944, the Bulgarians fought their former ally, the Germans. This two-volume series describes and illustrates all the fighter and fighter trainer aircraft used by t...

White Series: French Bombers of WWII

Product code:  78593AVI
While French fighter aircraft of the early period of World War II are well known and the subject of many books, the bombers used by the French Air Force in this period are up to now not well documented in English. This book describes and illustrates all such aircraft in use on 1940, from the obsolescent (and very ugly!) older types still in use to the elegant and up-to-date modern bombers just coming into use at the beginning of the war. Fully illustrated with many wartime photographs, scale pla...

Aircraft of the Aces: A6M Zero SEN Aces 1940-42

Product code:  21447AVI
Initially designed as a fast medium bomber, the Junkers Ju 88 was also used as a Zerstoerer heavy fighter by the Luftwaffe. It saw its combat debut over Poland in 1939, and heavy fighter variants saw action on every front up to VE Day. The ultimate Ju 88 fighter variant was the G-model of 1944, which boasted a FuG 220 or 227 radar, an astounding array of cannon and machine gun armament and advanced Junkers Jumo or BMW engines. A dedicated nightfighter, the first Ju 88G-1s entered service with th...

Luftwaffe Gallery: Special Album 4JG5 1940-45 Fighters of the Midnight Sun

Product code:  46216AVI
Nothing predestined these young men to one day encounter the grandiose landscapes of Norway or Lapland, as well as their hostile climates. Who would have predicted that so many of them would find their last resting places in the storm-tossed icy waters of the Arctic Sea or the snow-covered plains of the tundra? Who even now knows that the defeat of the Wehrmacht was precipitated by the failure to conquer Europe's northern-most small territory.

Combat Aircraft 127: RF-101 Voodoo Units in Combat

Product code:  29153AVI
McDonnell's F-101 Voodoo series was in many ways the most interesting of the `Century Series' fighter programmes of the 1950s, partly because the type's design and intended mission changed radically during a 40-year career. Originally designed as a fighter-bomber, it was converted to be a reconnaissance aircraft, serving alongside the U-2 and RF-8 Crusaders during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. Although it gained a reputation as a difficult aircraft to handle, the jet's supersonic...
