358 pp, 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, map endpapers. "When war broke out in September 1939, the Allied air forces had few combat aircraft and even fewer military pilots ready to fight. It was clear that air superiority would determine the outcome of the war, so in December 1939, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada created the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Most of the aircrew training took place in Canada - ." Minor bump at bottom of front hinge, tiny light stain on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear.

F-15 EAGLE., Braybrook, Roy.
2 Braybrook, Roy. F-15 EAGLE.
Osprey, London, 1991, first edition. 
128 pp, 11 7/8" H, hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1855321491 Profuesly illustrated with colour photographs. "Built to counter the seemingly invincible Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat, the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle has proven to be more than a match for any 'red' fighter interceptor for over 15 years. Carrying the all-seeing Hughes AN/APG-63 radar inside its massive radome, the interception capabilities of the Eagle have been matched only by its US Navy rival, the F-14 Tomcat. Although a large ae roplane, the Eagle is incredibly agile, with plenty of power from its twin afterburning Pratt & Whitney F-100 tubrofans. These allow a pilot to exploit the F-15 Eagle's suberb in-flight characteristics to the fullest extent. Entering frontline s q u adron service with the USAF's Tactical Air Command in late 1974, the F-15 has gone on to equip no less than six tactical fighter wings based in the USA, and one apiece in Germany and Japan. Five Air National Guard units also bolster the fron t li ne r anks with earlier version of the mighty Eagle. All USAF operators of the potent F-15 are graphically featured in this stunning volume. A chapter on the rarely illustrated Japanese Air Self-Defence Force complements the star-spangled F-1 5s ." Mi nor edge wear, small faint erasure mark at top of free front endpaper. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, some areas of light wrinkling at top edge. Very Good-/Very Good

165 pp, large 8vo (9 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with color and b&w photographs, drawings. 'Part Two of the book shows that many of the species survive. Part One, on the other hand, is an attempt to look at the aircraft from a different angle, not so much the fighter pilot's glamorous view but the day-to-day operations, trials and tribulations and the joys and delights of a ground crew struggling to come to terms with an aircraft that was, in many ways, a quantum leap in technology. A delight to fly, a joy to watch and a menace to work on - these sentiments seem to sum up the Lightning."

"(A) totally new collection of Lancaster stories and photographs; (this book) complements the earlier book, it does not duplicate it - much of its material has been, in many instances, inspired by the readers of the first 'Lancaster at War'.

IN FOR A PENNY, IN FOR A POUND:  THE ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURE OF A WIRELESS OPERATOR IN BOMBER COMMAND., Hewer, Howard.  Foreword by Group Captain Kenneth McDonald.  Introduction by Flight Lieutenant William H. Dixon.
8 Hewer, Howard. Foreword by Group Captain Kenneth McDonald. Introduction by Flight Lieutenant William H. Dixon. IN FOR A PENNY, IN FOR A POUND: THE ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURE OF A WIRELESS OPERATOR IN BOMBER COMMAND.
Stoddart, Toronto, 2000. 
272 pp, large 8vo (9 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 077373273X B&w photographs, maps. "In 1940, 19-year-old Howard Hewer dreamed of being the next Billy Bishop, of piloting Spitfires or Hurricanes over Europe. His dream was shattered when he was selected instead for a career as a wireless operator. But his thirst for adventure would certainly be satisfied. He was not to be a pilot, but he would play a vital role in air operations in World War II over Europe and the Mediterrane an. Hewer's life in Bomber Command was never dull, and almost always bittersweet. During training, he fell out of a Fairey Battle, and held on by only one foot high over Lake Erie. In London, he survived a run-in with the infamous 'Piccad i l l y C o m mandos', then dug for victims of an air raid in the rubble of a dance hall. But Hewer found life in the belly of Wellington, or 'Wimpy', bombers the most hazardous of all. He and his crew of 218 and 148 Squadrons flew important nigh t op er at i on s ov er Germany and North Africa, dropping their deadly payloads while dodging enemy flak. All the while, Hewer was busy at the radio controls identifying his Wimpy's position and detecting false codes from Axis operators, who were al way s o n t he pr ow l t o lure unsuspecting Allied bombers into landing on enemy airfields. On perhaps his bravest mission of the war, as a driver for the RAF in North Africa, Hewer drove deep behind enemy lines, where he exchanged fire with I tal ian troo ps. An othe r t ime, in Suez, he became bored while on medical leave, and joined on as a wireless operator on another operation. Soon after takeoff, the plane took flak and crash landed on the desert floor. Hewer was trapped, his le gs c rush ed ag ains t hi s rad io, the e ngines of the plane threatening to explode. At times comical, at others tragic, Howard Hewer's stirring story will leave a lasting imprint on the memory of its readers." Dust jacket has minor rubbing. Nea r Fin e/Nea r Fine

178 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 0897452585 "In 36 moths of sea duty as Radio Operator on five Merchant Marine ships, co-author Will Rayment encountered air bombings, typhoons and a tsunami while transporting volatile petroleum, munitions, lan ding craft, and troops. His tours on the Tanker 'Santa Cruz', the Liberty ships 'Gilbert M. Hitchcock' and 'Albert A. Robinson', the Refrigeration ship 'Grommet Reefer', and the Victory ship 'Fenn Victory' - along with his fellow seamen - wer e p a r t of the contribution to America's war effort by much-overlooked and unsung heroes.

Some 733 Merchant ships were sunk in the attempts to deliver America's war supplies for Allied troops.

LONDON BUSES 1929-1939., Martin, Gavin.
12 Martin, Gavin. LONDON BUSES 1929-1939.
Ian Allan, London, 1990. 
144 pp, 4to (11 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0711018804 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "....1929 was marked by a great leap forward in London bus design which followed the appointment of George John Rackham as Chief Engin eer at AEC. The following year saw the introduction of the Green Line coach services working across London from what were then sleepy country towns 30 or more miles distant from the fringes of the London General Omnibus Co's empire. The y e a r 1 9 3 0 also saw the first hesitant appearance of the diesel engine, quickly to be followed by the fluid flywheel, Wilson gearbox and hydraulic brakes. By the summer of 1932, a year before the formation of London Transport, some of the Ge ne ra l' s f am ou s Bl u ebird buses had these features in combination. London Transport quickly got to work replacing obsolete and non-standard buses and coaches. By the end of 1937 the General's NS type had all gone and by the summer of 1939 on ly a h and fu l of the v ehi cl es inherited from independent operators remained. The famous 10T10 type had replaced the first-generation Green Line coaches. New bus and coach designs of unorthodox layout - the TF type with the engine under the flo or, the CR ty pe with th e en gin e at the rear - were already in service. The side-engined AEC Q-type had come and gone as a production model, even though most of London Transport's 200 examples were to last until the 1950s. The incomparable RT type dou ble -de cke r whi ch w as to dom inate the London bus scene for nearly 40 years also appeared in 1939....takes the reader through these developments as they occurred, explaining their significance in language he or she will understand ."
