    Soms ben ik jaloers op de Britten! (En soms ook niet trouwens!) In ieder geval ben ik nu wel jaloers bij het lezen van dit mooie kleurrijke boek; Wat een luchtvaarthistorie is er gecreëerd in enkele tientallen jaren! En dan hebben we het alleen nog maar over de jaren 1945-1975 die in dit boekje worden […]

    Chris is of the age of the grandsons/-doughters of the men who flew the Thunderbolt over wartime Europa, but lucky enough to have had the opportunity to interview about twenty of the survivors of the 362nd. He also got in contact with the Arbeitsgruppe Vermissten- forschung from postwar Germany what explains the mentioning of many […]

    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 […]

    De RAF- campagne voor luchtoverwicht boven de grens tussen India en Burma en dat daarna oostwaarts uitrollen is het onderwerp van deze studie. Langs de Indiase grens lukte dat na de inzet van Spitfires vanaf september 1943. Het oostwaarts -boven Burma en later Malakka – uitrollen maakte pas kans nadat de US Army Air Force […]

    De titel van dit boek(je) doet tekort aan de inhoud: er wordt op zeer verhelderende wijze ingegaan op de geopolitieke ontwikkelingen in het westelijk deel van de Sahara vanaf de prehistorie. Vanaf eind 15e eeuw begint “onze” westerse bemoeienis met dit gebied. Om uit te monden in de kolonisatie door Spanje en Frankrijk vanaf 1830. […]

    Review Southern Thunder- Steve R. Dunn Dunn copied the title of this book from a Danish book, which described the war for neutral Denmark as a rather distant “Southern Thunder”. This is the fourth book from his hand about naval and political warfare with a focus on the Royal Navy. The book deals with the […]
