332nd Fighter Group - Tuskegee Airmen
Bucholtz, Chris
ISBN: 9781846030444
Osprey Pub Co  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 128 pages, AEU024. The USAAC's Tuskegee Experiment, designed to prove that African-Americans were not capable of flying combat aircraft, ironically resulted in the creation of one of the USAAF's elite units. Crewed by highly-educated and exceptionally motivated men, the 99th Fighter Squadron, led by Col Benjamin O. Davis (later joined by the 100th, 301st, and 302nd FS to form the 332nd Fighter Group), first flew ground attack missions in P-40s in North Africa and participated in the destruction and surrender of Pantelleria, off Sicily. Later, after the unit was equipped with P-51 Mustangs, the 'Redtails' began flying escort missions deep into Germany. The unit scoreboard boasted 111 aerial kills (including several Me 262 jets), 150 strafing victories, 950 vehicles and railway rolling stock destroyed, and the sinking of a German destroyer by war's end. The group were both feared and respected by the Germans, who called them the "Schwartze Voglemenschen" (Black Birdmen), and revered by others as the "Black Red-tail Angels", partly because of their distinct red-tailed aircraft, and partly because they never lost a bomber under escort to enemy attack (a feat which was unmatched by any other USAAF fighter group in World War II). The pilots of the 332nd FG attribute their success to the discipline instilled by Col Davis, who is reputed to have told them, 'If you lose a bomber, don't bother to come back.' This book will reveal the true story of the unit who rose above discrimination to achieve elite status.   As New

352nd Fighter Group
Ivie, Tom
ISBN: 9781841763828
Osprey Pub Co  2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 128 pages, AEU008. Nicknamed the ‘Bluenosed Bastards of Bodney’ due to the garish all-blue noses of their P-51s, the 352nd FG was one of the most successful fighter groups in the Eighth Air Force. Credited with destroying almost 800 enemy aircraft between 1943 and 1945, the 352nd finished fourth in the ranking of all groups within VIII Fighter Command. Initially equipped with P-47s, the group transitioned to P-51s in the spring of 1944, and it was with the Mustang that its pilots enjoyed their greatest success. Numerous first-hand accounts, 55 newly commissioned artworks and 140+ photos complete this concise history of the ‘Bluenosers’.   As New

Smith, Jack
ISBN: 9781841764405
Osprey Pub Co  2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 128 pages, AEU010. Nicknamed the 'Unicorns', the 359th FG was one of the last groups to arrive in the UK for service in the ETO with the Eighth Air Force. First seeing action on 13 December 1943, the group initially flew bomber escort sweeps in P-47s, before converting to the ubiquitous P-51 in March/April 1944. Throughout its time in the ETO, the 359th was credited with the destruction of 351 enemy aircraft destroyed between December 1943 and May 1945. The exploits of all 12 aces created by the group are detailed, along with the most significant missions flown. This book also discusses the various markings worn by the group's three squadrons, the 368th, 369th and 370th FSs   As New

479th Fighter Group: Riddle's Raiders
Stanaway, John
ISBN: 9781846034206
Osprey Pub Co  2009 
 Soft Cover New book, 128 pages, AEU032. Formed in October 1943 as part of the last group of fighter units to be sent into combat in northern Europe and the Pacific, the 479th FG wrote for itself an impressive history whilst flying against the Luftwaffe from RAF Wattisham in rural Suffolk. Despite the group's P-38s not being highly regarded in the Eighth Air Force due to their unsuitability for high-altitude combat, the 479th's pilots had a fierce pride of arms. Their fighting spirit, which saw the group destroy hundreds of German aircraft, earned the 479th a Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation in the late summer of 1944. The 479th transitioned to the P-51 Mustang in the autumn of 1944, and by VE-Day, some 29 aces had been created by the group, which had claimed more than 430 kills.  As New

4th Fighter Group - Debden Eagles
Bucholtz, Chris
ISBN: 9781846033216
Osprey Pub Co  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 128 pages, AEU030. Formed around a nucleus of pilots already seasoned by their experience as volunteers in the RAF's Eagle Squadrons, the 4th Fighter Group was established in England in October 1942. Initially flying Spitfires, the Debden Eagles went on to fly the P-47 and P-51, becoming in July 1943, the first Eighth Air Force fighter group to penetrate German air space. The group's record of 583 air and 469 ground victories was unmatched in the Eighth Air Force, and the group produced a cast of characters that included legendary aces Don Blakeslee, Pierce McKennon, 'Kid' Hofer, Duane Beeson, Steve Pisanos and Howard Hively. While primarily a bomber escort group, the 4th also played roles in supporting the D-Day landings, Operation Market Garden, the Battle of the Bulge and the crossing of the Rhine. The group's achievements came at a price, however, for 248 aircraft were lost in combat, with 125 pilots killed in action and 105 being taken prisoner - a 42 percent casualty rate. Packed with first hand accounts, detailed aircraft profiles and full combat histories, this book is an intriguing insight into the best-known American fighter unit in World War 2.   As New

A-20 Havoc in Action
Doyle, David
ISBN: 9780897477987
Squadron/Signal Publications  2014 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, SS14034. The Douglas A-20 Havoc was a light bomber, attack, and intruder aircraft of World War II. Used by the American Army Air Forces, nearly one-third of the aircraft served with the Soviet military, while many other A-20s fought with the RAF. Taking its first operational shape on the eve of the outbreak of the war in Europe, the 7B prototype actually crashed with a French observer aboard, kicking off a scandal in still-isolationist America where military aircraft were not to be exported. U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt pressed for a change in that restrictive rule and the French, impressed by the plane’s rugged dependability and maneuverability, proceeded to place orders for 100 of the aircraft, albeit with modifications that resulted in the DB-7 version. Even before shipments began in November 1939, Paris had increased its order by another 170 aircraft. Many of those, however, found their way into the British RAF, which flew them under the nickname 'Boston', after the fall of France in June 1940. The U.S. Army Air Corps issued its first contracts for the aircraft they called the A-20 and A-20A, in May 1939, these were only delivered during the months from late 1940 through much of 1941. A dozen A-20As had recently arrived in Pearl Harbor when the Japanese surprise attack destroyed two of them on the ground. Modifications of the design continued and it was after the U.S. entry into the war when the A-20C version, produced by Douglas and Boeing, were accepted. Of the first 515 A-20Cs, 108 were retained by the U.S. Army Air Forces, while 407 were shipped off to the Soviet Union. Numerous versions of the aircraft followed. About half of the A-20G were sent to the Soviet Union, as were many of the A-20H. In fact the Soviet air forces had more A-20s than the USAAF. Illustrated with 192 vintage photographs and detailed line drawings.   As New

American Nightfighter Aces of World War 2
Thomas, Andrew; Thompson, Warren
ISBN: 9781846033063
Osprey Pub Co  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE84. The Americans lagged behind their European contemporaries in military aviation in the late 1930s, and it took the Battle of Britain to awaken America to the necessity of having aircraft that could defend targets against night-time attack by bomber aircraft. This book examines the numerous aircraft types that were used by the US in this role, beginning with the early stop-gap conversions like the TBM Avenger, Lockheed Ventura and the A-20 Havoc (P-70). It goes on to detail the combat history of the newer, radar-equipped Hellcats, Corsairs and Black Widows that were designed to seek out enemy aircraft and which registered most of the kills made by the Navy, Marine Corps and USAAF in 1944-45. With full-colour profiles and rare photographs, this is an absorbing account of an underestimated flying force: the American Nightfighters. Contents: Chapter 1: Building the Nightfighter Programme, Chapter 2: Yanks in the RAF, Chapter 3: Pacific War Operations, Chapter 4: MTO Operations, Chapter 5: Black Widow in the ETO, Appendices.  As New

Squadron/Signal Publications  2015 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, SS10219. The B-17 Flying Fortress dropped more bombs than any other US aircraft in WWII and is arguably the iconic bomber of that epic conflict.

B-24 Liberator Units of the Eighth Air Force
Dorr, Robert F.
ISBN: 8483724952
Osprey Aviation/Delprado Spain 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages, 62 photos, 24 color aircfraft profiles, 6 1/96 scale drawings. The B-24 Liberator was built in greater numbers than any other US warplane, yet its combat crews live, even today, in the shadow of the less plentiful but better-known, B-17. Accounts of the 'Mighty Eighth' in Europe, and indeed many of the books and films that emerged from the greatest air campaign in history, often overlook the B-24, even though it was in action for as long as the Flying Fortress, and participated in just as many perilous daylight bombing missions.   As New

B-26 Marauder in Action
Stapfer, Hans-Heiri
ISBN: 9780897475495
Squadron/Signal Publications  2015 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, SS10210. 'Updated and packed with 20 new pages since Squadron's last edition of the B-26 In Action'! Probably no other aircraft type in the inventory of the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) can rival the reputation of the Martin B-26 Marauder. The B-26 nicknamed Flak Bait was the only American bomber to accomplish more than 200 missions during World War II. Over 60 percent of the Marauders that started bombing operations from English bases during the summer of 1943 were still operational a year later. A total of 129,943 Marauder sorties over Europe were recorded by the USAAF, this at the cost of 911 B-26s lost in combat. The Marauders belonging to the 9th and 12th Air Force dropped a total of 169,382 tons of bombs, mainly on tactical targets, such as bridges, enemy strong points, and marshalling yards, but also on V1 flying bomb sites in Northern France. Between November 1940 and March 1945, a total of 5,266 B-26s were built. Many senior pilots of the 22nd Bomb Group in Australia, the outfit that pioneered the Marauder recalled the B-26 as 'the best damn airplane the Air Force ever had'. And there is nothing more to add. Illustrated with 160 vintage photographs, color profiles, and detailed line drawings  As New

Weal, John
ISBN: 9781841760841
Osprey Pub Co  2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, ACE037. The highest scoring aces of any aerial conflict were the Luftwaffe pilots involved in the bloody combats on the Russian Front. The most common fighter used by these pilots was the Bf 109, which was involved in the action from Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, through to the doomed Defence of the Reich in 1945. Units like JGs 5, 52 and 54 all flew the Messerschmitt fighter, progressing from Emil to Gustav variants. This volume includes all the high-scoring aces, and explains just how difficult a job the Jagdwaffe faced on the Russian Front, and how its experts achieved such overwhelming scores.  As New
