THE SKY SUSPENDED.  THE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN., Middleton, Drew.
2 Middleton, Drew. THE SKY SUSPENDED. THE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN.
New York Longmans, Green 1960 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
282 pp, 8 1/4" H. Pictorial endpapers. "Here is a dramatic re-creation of England during those eventful days when Britain fought alone and when defeat of Britain would have been the defeat of hope. How close the batle was, how much hung in the balance and how that battle went is presented by the distinguished correspondent Drew Middleton who was reporting the events for the Associated Press. The forces at the command of the RAF - charged to defend the British Isles - were pitifully small in comparison to those of the German Luftwaffe, out to break the back of the English. An impartial military observer would have scoffed at the idea that so few would be able to do so much to so many. If the Luftwaffe had destroyed the RAF, there is no doubt that ultimately Britian would have fallen, little doubt that the history of the war and that of the world would have taken a different turning. How and why the tide of battle changed, what motives lay behind the German switch in tactics, what might have happened and came so close to happening - the story is superbly and dramatically told in (this) brilliant portrayal of a nation and a people battling for life." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor toning to edges of text block. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling, very light rubbing, a few very small scuffs on spine.

3 Price, Alfred. LUFTWAFFE HANDBOOK 1939-1945.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1977. 
111 pp, 9 7/16" H, hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated in b&w with photographs, maps, drawings, diagrams. "Drawing on sixteen years of research, the author provides an in-depth reference manual on the Luftwaffe at war, a book that mov es with ease from broad analysis to fascinating detail. Several important aspects of the Luftwaffe, often ignored in the past, receive particular emphasis: the working of the flak arm, which at the beginning of World War II engaged almost tw o - t h i r d s of the Luftwaffe's manpower; German pilot training on which the flying units' effectiveness ultimately depended; and tactics used by the various types of fighter and bomber units. Many biographies of senior commanders and illustrati on s of u ni fo rm s and insignia add to the interest of the volume that is an essential addition to the library of any serious student of war history, the aviation enthusiast, and the model airplane maker." Bump at top/bottom of spine, two tiny c orn er bu mps , v ery li ght edge wear. Dust jacket has been price clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, soft crease and faint rub line on front panel. Very Good/Very Good-
