Red Dragon ‘Flankers’, China’s Prolific ‘Flanker’ FamilyHarpia Publishing Verlags GmbH2022English254 pg.978-1-950394-10-4Review written by: Rene Verjans
Andreas Rupprecht writes cool books! And who says Rupprecht, says China! This is the umpteenth book of him, published by Harpia Publishing. I am really very happy with this publisher and what they have published till now. On their site it states at the category ‘Strategic handbooks’, only 1 book, but, as far as I am concerned, all the books – also this one – can be stated in this category, when it concerns nowadays airforces or other flying army units. As the quality and information value can be rated as ‘good’!

published in the past years in this series, really beautiful pictures.
Short Finals: An Aviation Adventure. "It's Time To Fly"Independently published2021English186 pg.979-8713651503Review written by: Max Heldring
As the author said in his preview “strap yourself in the jump seat” and let Scot Gibson (the main person in this book ) fly you around the world. And that is what this book is all about. You fly with Scot during his active career as a pilot in so many different planes and different disciplines that it also a book for non aviators who are interested in the aviation world.
Cuban Migs- The Defenders of Castro’s Air ForceHarpia Publishing Verlags GmbH2022English144 pg.9781950394098Review written by: Rene Verjans
(Nederlands) Yes! Here is another book of one of the most beautiful series that I collect! This time ‘Cuban Migs’ -and for the people that do not know the books of Harpia Publishing-; a great book that is part of a large series of books that, in the meantime, is published by them.
England Is My Village and The World Owes Me a LivingHP Handheld Press1941English62 pg.978-1-912766-66-6Review written by: Joris Gonggrijp
John Llewelyn Rhys gained his pilot’s licence in 1934 and joined the RAF as a Reservist in the following year. He already had some writing experience and demonstrated his talent for it. He kept on flying until his untimely death in 1940 aged 29. So not much writing of this short lived pilot survived. England […]

The Flying ShadowHandheld Press UK2022English978 1 912766 659Review written by: Max Heldring
The best review that described this book is probably the introduction by Daniel Kilburn and Luke Seaber published in the first paragraph. They dig deep into the character of Robert Owen whose life as a pilot instructor is described in this novel. They explain to the reader what symbolisms and metaphors Rhys uses to show […]
FLIGHT- a visual tribute to military aviation in all its formsRidder Aero Media2022English159 pg.ISBN 978-90-90-35771-3Review written by: Rene Verjans

ones in a book.
Sky RaiderSea Story Press USA Florida2022English307 pg.B09VZJFNZ7Review written by: Max Heldring
Reading this book I am not really sure whether this review should belong in AviationBookReviews because the title does not cover the load entirely. Duke Thomas, the main character in this book, is an “ace” during the First World War and servicing the USAAF with a big passion namely the archaeology of the Middle East […]
