READ THE FULL REVIEW A comprehensive account of the life of R C Sherriff, junior officer and famous writer. One of the WWI survivors who made a lucrative career as a novelist, playwright and screenwriter. His movie work is still very well known but not the man. This book provides a full picture – great read.
READ THE FULL REVIEW This novel is based on true experiences and fits into a growing number of books and films where it might be accurate to regard them as dramatised histories. Its a great read and it covers one of the least known major efforts of WWII, the air bridge to supply China. Easy to see why the book received the Gold Medal Award of the Military Writers Society of America.
READ THE FULL REVIEW With all the thousands of books published since 1945 about WWII, it seems impossible that any incident has escaped close attention from every possible angle. Here is a book to prove that there is much still to emerge. The author has made a first rate job of researching his subject and presenting a convincing account with credible conclusions. It is a contentious set of topics and an enthralling story. Strongly Recommended.
READ THE FULL REVIEW The publisher's Flight Craft series is rapidly becoming the standard reference series for serious modellers and model engineers. This new book covers the remarkable English Electric Lightning in all of the detail this series is famous for. There are the usual high quality full colour drawings, together with outstanding photographs, many also in full colour. Highly recommended for modellers, but also an excellent book for anyone with an interest in aviation.
READ THE FULL REVIEW Lavishly illustrated with rare photographs, including full colour, this book charts the history of British civil aviation from the end of WWII until the merger of BEA and BOAC to form British Airways. Considering the number of civil aircraft flying since 1945, it is surprising that more books have not been published on their service. The author provides a very welcome and well-researched account of BEA, and its aircraft, which is a pleasure to read.
READ THE FULL REVIEW Based on a secret diary maintained during four years of imprisonment, this is an authentic voice from WWII. The author demonstrates charm and optimism which lightens what might have been a depressing story. Recommended.
READ THE FULL REVIEW Based on AIR 20/8459, this is an Official History that provides the most accurate and detailed review of RAF/SOE operations during WWII. This is a fascinating review that reads well and contains rare images in its photo-plate section – a very worthwhile book opening up a previously obscured period of history.
READ THE FULL REVIEW There are very few books about modellers and model engineers. Those that are available tend to feature individuals that are famous for something else but happen to be interested in modelling. This book is different because it reviews the story of the modeller and his models. Ough is considered by many to be the greatest modeller of the Twentieth Century. This is a very interesting story and includes a selection of the finest drawings and photographs, much recommended.
