    In the past – the eighties- I looked aimlessly to pictures of the ‘modern hunters’ of that time. The pictures of the Russian jet-fighters were often black and white, sometimes in colour, but always granulated. This on the contrary to the pictures of the Western jet-fighters and other aviation planes. Of course it all had […]

    Two reviews in one! I previously was already enthusiastic about the books of Andreas Rupprecht, published by Harpia Publishing, and also now I have to really say that I have two great new books on my bookshelf. The Air force book is with 240 pages slightly thicker than the Army book, which counts 95 pages. […]

    Since the invention of the air balloon and the first flight with the heavier then air plane collecting information from the air was practised  and certainly in case of a military conflict. However since the second world war gathering of information using aeroplanes was tilted to a higher level with special photo and reconnaissance flights. After the […]

    So, a very beautiful book this! It tells about a bit of war history which we know little about in the Western world (to my opinion). Nevertheless, it is my first book about being in war in those areas. Publisher Avonmore Books has with this second book from Michael Claringbould and Peter Ingman about the […]

    In 1973 I was 2 years old and that is exactly the reason why I didn’t know about this ‘war’. And then it is very nice that this book of Helion & Company crosses my path to change that! It is a book from the ‘Middle East & War-series’ of which Tom Cooper has written […]

    Sometimes I am jealous of the British! (and sometimes also not, by the way!) But now I am, when reading this beautiful colourful book; what an aviation history has been created in a couple of decennia! And here we are just talking about the 1945-1975 years that are described in this book. Malcolm V Lowe […]

    Roger Brooks’ involvement with the Victor started in 1966, three years after Cary Powers in his high flying U2 spyplane was downed by a Sovjet rocket. That resulted in “sudden death” for high flying bombers. The Victor was then converted to a tanker for in-flight refuelling. Roger is, in my opinion, the archetype of an […]

    The RAF-campaign for air supremacy above the border between India and Burma and unrolling eastward after that, is the topic of this study. Across the Indian border this succeeded, from September 1943 onwards, after the deploy of Spitfires The eastward –above Burma and later Malakka- unrolling only had chance after the US Army Air Force […]
