    These days I am increasingly wondering whether I, as a reviewer of books, am critical enough. Could there possibly be a downside to holding a PPL License which might be causing me to devour only good books instead of reading mediocre to bad books and drilling them into the ground with a flourish? Is it […]

    The cold war with Russia between the 1950s and 1980s has passed for many of us nearly unnoticed. Mainly in political and military circles it was a big issue and influenced the development of military weaponry substantially. This book describes what a formidable opponent Russia was. It gives the reader an overview of the armory that […]

  • Memories in mud

    Arthur van der Starre and Raoul de Zwart
    X X X X X

    Between 6500 and 7500 (!) planes crashed or were shot down in the Netherlands during WWII. We are talking here of bombers, fighters and reconnaissance planes, the vast majority belonging to the British, American and German air forces, not all of which have been recovered. It is estimated that around 1500 to 2000 aircraft have […]

    A very nice book this time by Bart Vandamme from Belgium. For him it all started in October 2001, when he was invited to the annual “Gathering of Eagles” in the city of Lancaster (near Edwards AFB) in California. I never get invited for such gatherings! There he met people like Chuck Yeager, Bill Dana […]

    One would not exactly refer to aviation as a niche. Books on the subject of aviation probably more so. However, books about World War ll control towers would certainly fall into that category! This book from the brothers Theo and Frans Barten contains photographs of the last 52 remaining Second World War towers at (former) […]
