Eagles of Mitsubishi: The Story of the Zero Fighter
Horikoshi, Jiro
First English language edition

The birth of the Zero fighter marked the beginning of a new era in naval aviation. Because of its extraordinary maneuverability and range, the Zero quickly established itself as the world's finest carrier-based fighter. It led the attack on Pearl Harbor, and dominated the Pacific in the early days of World War II. For a time it seemed invincible, and to many it symbolized Japan's conduct of the war.
This book is the complete story of the Zero as told by its chief designer, Dr. Jiro Horikoshi. It begins with a brief account of his early life and training as an aeronautical engineer. Dr. Horikoshi then discusses the problems he faced in the 1930s as he attempted to develop fighter aircraft in Japan that were on a par with those of the Western world.
As war grew closer, Dr. Horikoshi and the Mitsubishi design staff were challenged by the Japanese Navy to develop a "wonder" fighter - an aircraft with performance far exceeding that of any fighter previously built. After months of work, and several key breakthroughs, the first prototype Zero was ready for flight testing. Dr. Horikoshi describes the joy of that first successful flight, the tragic deaths of two test pilots on subsequent flights, and the constant intense efforts of the design team to improve the aircraft.
When the Zero finally entered combat over China in August 1940, it blasted all opposition from the skies. Because U.S. authorities discounted early reports on the Zero, its appearance over Pearl Harbor came as a complete surprise. Thereafter, however, the Zero could not be ignored. Not until the Battle of Midway in June 1942 were the Allies able to retaliate successfully in the air.
Inevitably, in the later stages of the war, the Zero was forced into a defensive posture for which it was not suited. New U.S. fighters were introduced into combat, and Japanese resources were badly depleted. The atomic bombings clearly revealed the folly of continued military action and Dr. Horikoshi tells of the subsequent surrender.
This book, then, is both the saga of the development and performance of a great airplane and a personal account of how a famous aircraft designer went about his task. For a Western reader, it is all the more interesting because it views World War II from a Japanese perspective.
Jiro Horikoshi, who served for many years as chief aircraft designer for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, now lives near Tokyo.

Camouflage and Markings of the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana 1943-1945: A Photographic Analysis through Speculation and Research
D'Amico, Ferdinando - Valentini, Gabriele
For the first time in the English language and following years of research, this book analyses the Camouflage and markings of the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana (ANR), the Fascist air force formed following the wake of Italy's capitulation to the Allies in 1943, and an often overlooked aspect of Italian airpower during the Second World War.
Fighting alongside the Luftwaffe to the bitter end in Northern Italy, the ANR was equipped with the German Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter as well as a range of Italian fighters, bombers, torpedo and transport ajrcraft - all of which are examined by the authors with the aid of hundreds of photographs showing the Camouflage and markings Systems adopted by unit and individual pilots.
In a 'photographic analysis through speculation and research' the authors - recognised authorities in their field - explain the evolution of various units such as the Squadriglia Complementare 'Montefusco', the 1° and 2° Gruppo Caccia which were equipped with the Fiat G.55, Macchi C.205 and Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters, and the Gruppo Aerosiluranti 'Buscaglia' which flew the SIAI S.M.79. Other aircraft are studied such äs the SIAI S.81 and SIAI S.82 which equipped the ANR transport units and second-line aircraft such as the Avia FI.3, Breda 25, Reggiane Re.2005, Macchi C.200, Saiman 202, SAI 7, Cant Z 1007, SIAI S.79, Caproni Ca.164 and IMAM Ro.41.
This heavily illustrated and highly detailed work of reference contains more than 400 rare and, often previously unseen photographs and these are accompanied by a clear and concise text with some 40 colour* profiles and 'in action' colour graphics, 23 colour plan views and 40 colour plates illustrating ANR markings and codes.
Ferdinande D'Amico and Gabriele Valentini are acknowledged experts on the aircraft of the Italian air forces of World War Two. They are the authors of the acclaimed Bf 109 in Italian Service and (with Nick Beale) Air War Italy 1944-45: The Axis Air Forces from the Liberation of Rome to the Surrender.

Focke-Wulf Ta 152: The Story of the Luftwaffe's Late-War, High-Altitude Fighter
Hermann, Dietmar
First English Language Edition

From the time of its appearance in 1939 the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was one of the best fighter aircraft of the Second World War - a masterpiece produced by chief designer Kurt Tank. In 1943 he developed a new fighter aircraft based on this successful concept. The project soon deviated far from the original Fw 190 concept and as an honor to the designer it was designated the Ta 152. The great performance potential of this fighter was obvious from the very first prototypes of the Ta 152A and Ta 152C. Unfortunately, however, production was limited to a few examples. But at the same time Focke-Wulf was developing the Ta 152H high-altitude fighter which, powered by the Jumo 213E and equipped with a pressurized cockpit, was capable of reaching altitudes on the order of 35,000 feet and speeds in excess of 430 mph. A few Ta 152Hs saw action at the beginning of 1945 and they made an excellent impression on their pilots. Compared to the older fighters they exhibited significantly better flight characteristics and performance at high altitude. The Ta 152 could also stand up to the best Allied fighter aircraft, such as the American P-51 Mustang. On account of its unfamiliar shape the pilots of Bf 109s some-times mistook it for an enemy aircraft and attacked. The heavy Allied bombing at the end of the war prevented production from beginning as planned, and as a result only a very few Ta 152Hs could be delivered. With the aid of a large number of photographs - some previously unpublished - and drawings, this book details the development history of the Ta 152, one of the most advanced fighter aircraft of its day. But it also illustrates the hopelessness of Germany's efforts late in the war to deploy advanced aircraft in large numbers.

Shark Squadron Pilot
Horden, Bert
First Edition

'Shark Squadron Pilot' is a graphic Illustration of the realities of the air war in the Western Desert. Bert Horden joined No. 112 'Shark' Squadron early in 1942 and was soon initiated into the ground attack role of the 'Kittys'. With their garish shark's mouths painted on their aircraft No. 112 Squadron wreaked havoc on the German Afrika Corps as the war in the Western Desert rose to its climax. Inflicting terrible damage with machine gun fire on soft skinned targets, like convoys of trucks, and causing significant damage with their underslung bombs on the hard skinned Panzers, the aircraft of '112 Squadron soon became well known to Rommel's troops.
Using his diary and flying log book to preserve the accuracy and immediacy of the events Bert Horden has written a superb account of desert flying . In places extremely graphic and throughout well illustrated, 'Shark Squadron Pilot' will be an important contribution to the recorded history of the Second World War.

Hell Island: Canadian Pilots and the 1942 Air Battle for Malta
McCaffery, Dan
The 1942 Siege of Malta was an incredible, against-the-odds triumph for England's Royal Air Force and a small band of Canadian fliers. Historians have often compared this campaign to that other epic stand - the Battle of Britain.
Popular military historian Dan McCaffery has written a lively new account of one of the most exciting victories of the war. Looking at the nine-month period in 1942 when the Axis powers decided to invade Malta, McCaffery describes the way Allied submarines and bombers operating from the tiny island effectively controlled shipping in the Mediterranean. Allied forces eventually became so successful at sinking passing enemy ships that supplies for German Field Marshal Rommel were threatened.
In retaliation, Hitler and Mussolini decided to starve and bomb Malta out of the war. McCaffery vividly captures the tension of the devastating offensive, bringing to life all the key events of the battle from the March Blitz to the final Allied victory in October. The heroic exploits of air aces Buzz Beurling, Wally McLeod, Moose Fumerton, and John Williams are described in colourful detail. Air history and military history fans will not want to miss this fascinating new account of the important role played by Canadians in one of the most exciting campaigns of World War II.

Boeing 737
Gerresheim, Helmut
Aus der Buchreihe: "Flugzeuge die Geschichte machten".


Seit dem Erstflug der legendären Boeing 707 im Jahr 1954 steht der Name Boeing stellvertretend für den Einsatz von Düsenflugzeugen im Luftverkehr. Dennoch hielt sich das Unternehmen lange zurück, mit der Boeing 737 in das Kurzstreckengeschäft einzusteigen. Als die Fertigung der »Baby-Boeing« Anfang 1965 anlief, schien die Konkurrenz den Flugzeugbauern aus Seattle bereits davongeflogen zu sein. Doch innerhalb kürzester Zeit mauserte sich die 737 zum unbestrittenen Bestseller unter den Verkehrsflugzeugen. Bis 1994 gingen weit mehr als 3000 Bestellungen bei Boeing ein. Ein wichtiger Grund für diesen Erfolg: Der neue Jet war bewußt konventionell und unkompliziert entworfen worden, so daß auch kleinere Fluglinien kein wartungsintensives und für »Kinderkrankheiten« anfälliges »Hightech«-Gerät zu befürchten hatten. Inzwischen fällt gut ein Drittel aller gefertigten Boeing-Jets auf die 737. Täglich fliegen weltweit rund eine Million Passagiere über eine Entfernung von insgesamt acht Millionen Kilometer mit dem erfolgreichen »Kraftei«, das im dichten Flugverkehr in den USA und Europa ebenso zuhause ist wie auf den wenig besuchten Flugstrecken Afrikas und Asiens.

Flughafen Dresden: Geschichte und Gegenwart der Dresdner Luftfahrt
Besonders hochwertige, schöne Aufmachung mit vielen z.T. farbigen Abbildungen.

Die Entwicklung des Flughafens Dresden ist eng mit der von Stadt und Region verbunden, seine Geschichte gilt exemplarisch für die der deutschen Luftfahrt. Jahrzehntelang war der zivile Luftverkehr Gast am Flughafen. Die militärische Nutzung dominierte - unterbrochen nur von einem der ehrgeizigsten Projekte der DDR-Volkswirtschaft, dem nach kurzer Zeit gescheiterten Verkehrsflugzeugbau. Im Kontext der gesellschaftlichen Möglichkeiten erreichten seitdem Luftverkehr und Flugzeugbau in Dresden ein beachtliches Niveau. Der gegenwärtige Ausbau zum modernen, internationalen Verkehrsflughafen und das erfolgreiche Engagement im Flugzeugbau knüpfen an diese Tradition an.

Courage Alone: The Italian Air Force 1940-1943
Dunning, Chris
Revised and updated edition

Derided by Allied propaganda which made it out to be an air force equipped solely with elderly biplanes, ineffective in attack or always in retreat, the Regia Aeronautica was overshadowed by its more ruthless Axis partner, the Luftwaffe.
Using research from a mass of original documentation, including personal accounts and combat diaries, Courage Alone shows that the men who flew the Macchis, Fiats and Savoias were no less skilled or determined than their opponents, but were considerably handicapped by aircraft that were usually under-powered, under-gunned and in desperately short supply.
Failed by their leadership and at the far end of an inefficient logistics system, far too often all the Italian airmen had that could match their opponents was courage alone.

The Fight in the Clouds: The Extraordinary Combat Experience of P-51 Mustang Pilots During World War II
Busha, James P.
First Edition

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang first started appearing in real numbers in 1943 at the climax of the Allied campaign in World War II. Able to fly long ranges, it was the perfect escort, keeping bombers protected all the way from Allied bases in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific to a variety of Axis industrial targets and military installations and back. The Mustang would go on to provide pivotal air support on D-Day, and by the end of the war, it would be responsible for nearly half of all enemy aircraft shot down.
In The Fight in the Clouds, critically acclaimed aviation writer and EAA Warbirds of America magazine editor James P. Busha narrates a spellbinding collection of tales of P-51 Mustang combat throughout the war. Drawing on Interviews conducted with dozens of veteran P-51 pilots, the book traces the progress of war through the exciting, chronologically organized experiences of the men who actually flew the planes into war. You'll encounter Mustangs tangling with Soviet-built Yaks, a Mustang ace shooting down an Me 262 Stormbird, an epic long-range battle over the Pacific Ocean, and a score of other riveting accounts underscoring the P-51's versatility and its vital importance to the Allied victory. Bolstered by Busha's own commentary and historical analysis, along with a gallery of rare black-and-white period photographs, The Fight in the Ctouds offers a cockpit-seat view of one of World War II's most celebrated aircraft and the men who bravely flew it into harm's way.

Desert Eagles
Wynn, Humphrey
First Edition

Desert Eagles tells the story of two American pilots who served in P-40 Kittyhawk fighter / bomber squadrons in the desert air force in 1942 before, during and after the Battle of El Alamein.
Both pilots, Hai Marting and Ed Miluck, had come to Britain in 1941 as volunteers of the American Eagle Squadrons. Both men kept diaries of their Middle East experiences and it is on these first-hand accounts that the book is based.
Hai Marting was shot down on the day the Battle of El Alamein began, captured and taken by the Germans to Athens. There he escaped and with the help of the Greek Resistance evaded recapture, being taken across the Aegean Sea to Turkey and journeying from there back to Cairo by train.
The two pilots were reunited in Cairo on 31 December, 1942. Marting was awarded the Military Cross in July 1943 but sadly was killed in an air crash in September 1943.
Humphrey Wynn has used his own knowledge of the period to provide a background to the diary material and has produced a fascinating account of these two mens' war.
