Antiquated as it was, the "Stringbag" still outmaneuvered almost any other aircraft--especially with Lamb at the controls. Go with him into the thick of the action--landing on the Courageous just before she sinks; flying 29 sorties over northern Europe; attacking E-boats through the nine days of Dunkirk. Also experience the terror of being shot down...and living to soar again, defending Malta and the Mediterranean. A rare story of courage.

No Place for Chivalry
Goodrum, Alastair
Grub Street UK 2005 
 Hardcover Inscription & author signature on the title page. 192 crisp pp, photos amidships, just a feather under 500g for posting. No Place for Chivalry encapsulates the story of the air defense of England against attack by night. By taking the area covered by RAF Wittering and Digby sectors, looking at the action of night fighter squadrons operating from those stations and their satellite airfields, the way the battle developed, its timeline of events, the events themselves and the organization of those involved, a coherent picture of how the night air defense of Britain evolved is formed. The narrative is pitched at a level of detail and with such human interest content that it enables readers not only to grasp what is happening and why but also to feel the tensions, frustrations and euphoria of success that the aircrews felt at the time. The reader gets a view from the cockpit or gun turret, to 'meet' and 'fly' with the men of both sides who fought in the air at night - men whose moral standards on the ground were above reproach but, when fighting in the night sky, gave no quarter. Faults? trivial bump to upper right rear corner.  Excellent/Very Good/Excellent

Halifax Wellington
Rapier, Brian & Bowyer, Chaz
The Promotional Reprint Company UK  
 Hardcover Originally as separate issues I'd say "Halifax at War" & "Wellington & now together in this very interesting volume.

Faults? upper right corners bumped, a few splots on compressed pp edges at the side, o/wise it's a treat. Pub maybe 1994. comments >> This most versatile but much­maligned aircraft played its part in a wide variety of roles and theatres of operations - from the flak-torn night skies over north-west Europe, to the swirling sands of the North African desert; from the bleak watery wastes of the North Atlantic, to top-secret 'cloak and dagger' operations. Former Halifax crewmen add their recollections to the visual his­tory provided here by the impres­sive selection of contemporary photographs and profiles. This for­mula provides a fascinating insight into the life and times of a famous warplane, and of those who flew in Halifaxes. Wellington at War. >>> The Vickers Wellington was RAF Bomber Command's leading twin­ engined medium bomber in its day, which was from the outbreak of war until 1943, and from then on the Wellington's specialised vari­ants went on in service through the war period and beyond until the last one, a trainer, in 1953. It was remarkable for its geo­detic structure - a feature of con­struction developed by Dr. Barnes Wallis, that made the airframe capable of sustaining enormous punishment, and yet survive the journey back to base.  Very Good/Very Good

Birth of a Legend The Spitfire
Quill, Jeffrey
Quiller Press UK 1986 2nd Impression
 Hardcover ex-lib & some nitwit has removed the 1st page, so low price for this iconoic Quill book. In the pre-war years aerial races were a hit with the famous Schneider Trophy; enter R. J. Mitchell who designed the Supermarine S 4 and anyone with an interest in aircraft design will instantly recognise this as a very early Spitfire with floats instead of wheels. The trophies were won and the development continued right up until the outbreak of World War Two when suddenly the requirements of a nation at war became very different from winning silver cups. Europe had entered into a fight for its own existence and the Supermarine - so far ahead of its time when it first appeared, coupled with a 12 cylinder Merlin engine had become the Spitfire. about the author >>> Jeffrey Quill was the second man to fly the aircraft after Vickers' chief test pilot, "Mutt" Summers, at school constant aerial activity overhead quickened the already air-minded Quill's resolve to take a career in the Royal Air Force, on joining his flying ability was assessed as "exceptional". In September 1932 he joined No 17 Squadron RAF at Upavon, where he began flying Bristol Bulldog fighters, technical development was his forte & right up to 1940 Quill was in charge of development and production flying but gained short release to get combat experience. After the war & by the time he retired to fly a desk Quill had flown more than 50 variants of this magical aircraft. This is Quill's second book & a gem.  Good/Very Good

Island in the Sky
Gann, Ernest
Hodder & Stoughton  1955 
 Hardcover Island in the Sky was the first book to be written about the Army Air Transport Command during WWII. It is also the first book of Ernest Gann's to be made into a motion picture that starred John Wayne. Island in the Sky is not a war story, but based on a true incident that happened in the frozen lands of Northern Canada. It is a tale of survival and comradeship. review >>> Gann was a left-seat man and he was able to tranfer his need for perfection to the printed page. A veteran pilot will find no flaws or mistakes or stupid exaggerations in the technical descriptions in this book. Ernie Gann will put you in the left seat and make you sweat. He will give you the sense and the thrill of flying a four-engine transport under dubious conditions in 1944. 193pp less than 500g for post - faults? dj wear (see pic please)  Good/Good/Fair

Phoenix Triumphant The Rise and Rise of the Luftwaffe
Hooton, ER
Arms and Armour Press UK 1994 
 Hardcover 320 pp in great order, 800g for post. British historian Hooton uses published sources and archival material to tell a familiar story from a fresh perspective. He describes the development of German air power (Luftwaffe) that began in 1930, well before Hitler's seizure of power, and reached its zenith with the destruction of France in 1940. He focuses on organization, training and equipment, and provides a solid analysis of the Luftwaffe's operational employment, including the occupations of Austria and Czechoslovakia. He also explains how the Germans circumvented the restrictions of the Versailles Treaty to build up the Luftwaffe during the interwar years. The Luftwaffe was more than a ground-support force, the author maintains; its primary mission was to secure air superiority. author info > Edward R. Hooton is a defence writer, who has authored multiple books including publications for the Jane's Information Group.  Excellent/Very Good

UNDER THE GUNS OF THE RED BARON The Complete Record of Von Richthofen’s Victories and Victims Fully Illustrated
Franks Norman, Giblin Hal and McCrery Nigel
Caxton  2000 
 Hardcover 1.2 kg, 224pp with numerous illustrations throughout, faults? two small repaired tears atop dj at spine & flapfold. Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen was the most feared and celebrated of all German pilots in World War I, and has become one of the iconic figures of history. This book, by three respected historians, has researched in detail the lives of all of his 123 victims (over 100 of whom are depicted), and provides a blow-by-blow account of their encounter with the great man - a unique compilation of material. reviewer says >>> The book itself is thoroughly well researched,the authors having combed both British and German records to authenticate MvR`s claims. The result is probably the definitive listing of the 80 victories. However, it goes further by giving the biographies, and wherever possible, the photographs of each of the RFC/RNAS/RAF crewmen.   Very Good/excellent/Good

The Battle of Britain
NESBIT, Roy Conyers
Sutton Publishing UK 2000 
 Hardcover 260 highly illus pp, 1.5 kilo packed to post. Roy Conyers Nesbit not only describes the exploits of RAF Fighter Command and the German Liftwaffe, but he also tells the wider story of the battle--the contributions made to victory by RAF Bomber and Coastal Commands. The Battle of Britain contains a broad, picture-led narrative, drawing on a range of private and museum sources to illustrate the course of this legendary air battle. Rather than concentrate solely on the exploits of RAF Fighter Command, the author's narrative tells the wider story of the battle. This includes the Luftwaffe's viewpoint and the contributions made to victory by Bomber and Coastal Commands; and the British aircraft industry's efforts to supply the RAF with desperately needed fighter aircraft.

Lightning Force: RAF Units 1960-1988 - a Photographic Appreciation of the English Electric Lightning
Martin, Fred
ISBN: 1905414005
Dalrymple & Verdun  2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 112 pages, 160 colour and B&W pages. This highly illustrated book is a photographic appreciation of the Lightnings’ service in the RAF, including all the squadrons which operated this stunning aircraft. Mainly from the camera of one dedicated Lightning enthusiast and accomplished photographer. With the exception of a few illustrations included to set Fred Martins unique pictures in context, none of these photographs have been published in book form before. We have deliberately chosen a fairly large format for this publication to allow us to do full justice to the high quality photographs and to enable the reader to study in detail many of the aircrafts various features and paint schemes. Accurate illustrations of the squadron badges have also been included along with the badges of the training and target facilities flights. The introductions and captions to each squadron are a detailed account of its history whilst operating the Lightning. ‘Lightning Force’ sums up the shear exhilaration of the power, speed and noise that is the Lightning. Even today some seventeen years after the type was retired from frontline RAF service it still engenders great affection with aviation enthusiasts around the world. We are sure that all of those who admire the Lightning will enjoy studying these remarkable pictures and take themselves back to a time when they can remember seeing and hearing this type in the air. For those too young to recall this great aircraft these pages will provide superb visual reference and inspiration.  As New
