262 pp, oblong 4 1/4" H x 7" D, soft cover. Profusely illustrated in b&w with photographs and 3-view drawings. "Many times in the three decades that have followed the Second World War, military transport aircraft have demonstrated that they can pr event wars, or wage war, as effectively as the more aggressive categories of combat aircraft. As long ago as 1948-9, the freight-carrying transports of America, Britain and France averted a third World War by keeping West Berlin alive in the f i r s t great confrontation of the 'cold war' which we remember as the Berlin Air Lift. At Suez and in Vietnam, the transports flew wingtip-to-wingtip with the fighters and bombers, air-dropping men and supplies, and performing entirely new tas k s wh en f it t ed with electronic counter-measures equipment or heavy gunship armament. In Czechoslovakia in 1968, transport squadrons of the Soviet Air Force sent a shudder down the spines of Western strategists by demonstrating how quickly and e ff ici ent ly the y could set down an army of occupation, to smother a threatened rebellion, by night. There is little need to emphasise the part that sound training plays in such operations. But training aircraft no less than transport aircraf t a nd heli copt ers , ar e often adapted for more militant duties nowadays. Such a concept dates back at least as far as the Battle of Britain, when Tiger Moths and Harvards suddenly sprouted small bombs in defence of the United Kingdom. Today, s ome jet trai ners can lift a weight of bombs, rockets, guns and other weapons that would not have disgraced a first-line bomber of 1940. These are the kind of aircraft found in (this book)." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership m arks . E xterio r - v ery minor e dge wear. Very Good+
