176 pp, 12" H. "The destructive power of warships has increased dramatically since the end of World War II. The big gun has been superseded by the carrier-launched aircraft armed with bombs and torpedoes. (This book) offers a comprehensive overview of the dominant naval groups; organised by ship type, it features fast attack craft, naval fighters, ballistic missile submarines, supercarriers, amphibious assault craft, light carriers and battleships. For each group is given a weapons and ship inventory as well as full details of deployment, combat techniques and tactics used. The descriptions are brought to life with first-hand accounts from officers who have served on each type of craft. (It) is packed with information presented in the most accessible way: there are specifications tables on specific craft, diagrams showing weapon deployment, full-colour artworks displaying the features of particular vessels and gatefold pages providing special large-format illustrations of seven ships."

London Osprey 1991 1855321491 / 9781855321496 First Edition Very Good- Very Good 
128 pp, 11 7/8" H. 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 aeroplane, the Eagle is incredibly agile, with plenty of power from its twin afterburning Pratt & Whitney F-100 turbofans. These allow a pilot to exploit the F-15 Eagle's suberb in-flight characteristics to the fullest extent. Entering frontline squadron 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 front line ranks 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-15s." Minor 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.

128 pp, 11 7/8" H. Profuesly illustrated with colour photographs. "The 'son' of the Northrop YF-17 Cobra, the Hornet grew both in weight and capability after being ordered by the Navy to replace the venerable Vought A-7 Corsair II. Now an integral part of the modern carrier air wing, the F/A-18 has dramatically increased the capabilities of fighter and attack squadrons already embarked aboard the Navy's 15-strong carrier fleet. Not all Hornets spotted in American skies are Navy property though, the 'flying leathernecks' of the US Marine Corps having received their first F/A-18s at virtually the same time as the 'blue water' force. Over a dozen USMC squadrons are now equipped with the versatile Hornet. Travelling further afield, Canada, Australia, Spain and South Korea have all chosen the F/A-18 to fulfill the fighter/attack requirements of their respective air forces past the year 2000. (This book) takes you aboard ship with a frontline Navy squadron as they patrol the barren expanses of the Atlantic, or takes you on a scrub skimming attack sortie over the parched wastelands of the 'outback' with the Royal Australian Air Force." Book slightly cocked, very light edge wear, small faint erasure mark on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor edge wrinkling.

AVRO SHACKLETON.  POSTWAR MILITARY AIRCRAFT: 3., Chartres, John.
14 Chartres, John. AVRO SHACKLETON. POSTWAR MILITARY AIRCRAFT: 3.
Shepperton, Surrey Ian Allan 1999 0711015139 / 9780711015135 Reprint Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
112 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, drawings. "The Avro Shackleton completed 40 years of front-line service in the Royal Air Force. The first prototype (in shape and concept a direct descendent of the Manchester-Lancaster-Lincoln-Tudor lineage) first flew in 1949, and the AEW aircraft of No 8 Squadron were still operational in the early 1990s. The aircraft undoubtedly marked the end of an era of the RAF's four-piston-engined 'heavies', although it remained in service for nearly 30 years after it was first classified as obsolete. Built originally for anti-submarine warfare, the Shackleton had been used by the RAF for other roles, including search and rescue, colonial policing, troop and freight carrying, supplying weather ships, maritime surveillance and showing the flag. (T)he author not only traces the Shackleton's origins and activities in many different roles but brings out the deep affection felt for the type by both air and ground crews in spite of the arduous and sometimes perilous nature of the operations in which it had been involved. This book was first published in 1985 and statements made then were current. Many of these may well have been overtaken by subsequent events." Dust jacket has fading to the spine colour - lettering still bright.

427 pp, 9 1/2" H. Profusely illustrated in b&w with drawings, reproductions and photographs. "(This book) fills a wide gap in the history of costume, since former books on the subject have concentrated on the fashions of the more leisured classes (a minority) rather than on the clothes worn by people at work. The occupations covered include those of outdoor manual worker, tradesmen, craftsmen, miners, seamen, public and domestic servants. In describing working clothes, the authors show that they gradually evolved from a comparative uniformity in medieval times to a later rich variety related to particular occupations. (An) entertaining book for the general reader as well as a source of historically accurate information for teachers and students of social history, theatrical producers and all interested in the dress of working men and women through the centuries."

20 Dezarrois, Andre, editor. Translated from the French by Philip John Stead. (Rene Mouchotte.) THE MOUCHOTTE DIARIES, 1940-1943.
London Staples Press 1956 First British Edition Very Good - Fair 
221 pp, 8 3/4" H. Frontispiece. "This is the famous Rene who was transformed by three years of war from an unknown pilot of the Reserve into one of the great leaders of Free France in the air, Pierre Clostermann's hero and commanding officer. In 1940 Rene made his daring escape from Oran in an unserviceable plane seized from under the very noses of the authorities. This was a flight not away from danger, but into the thick of the Battle of Britain. He fought with the R.A.F. in Hurricanes and Spitfires, attacking enemy shipping, sweeping over France, giving air-cover to the Dieppe landing, duelling with the Luftwaffe. His exceptional courage and integrity, his powers of leadership and skill as an aerial tactician quickly won the admiration of his superiors. Rene's airborne career culminated at Biggin Hill where he commanded the fighter wing and it was he who shot down the 1,000th German plane recorded by the fighter group there shortly before his death. In the end, his greatest wish was granted, for he had written in his diary: 'If I am not to survive the war, let me at least have the satisfaction of falling to the enemy's fire'. The personal magnetism and sincerity of 'Commandant Rene' make (this) an original and valuable contribution to the literature of the war in the air."
