The V-2 rocket, Hitler hoped, would reverse the course of the war and bring him victory. When allied intelligence discovered what was afoot, the RAF was ordered to destroy Peenemunde at whatever th e r i s k ...Martin Middlebrook has brought to (this book) his usual thorough research and authoritative analysis. All aspects of the subject are covered in graphic detail: the experiments at Peenedmunde, the lifestyle of the German community and th e m an y fo reign workers there, the Intelligence hunt, events at British headquarters, the fortunes of the British and Luftwaffe aircrews, and the experiences of those under attack..."

Blandford, London, 1968, first edition. 
183 pp, 7 3/8" H, hard cover in dust jacket. Colour plates. "When war broke out in Europe in August 1914 there were no specialised fighters, only a handful of 'high performance scouts' whose 90 m.p.h. was 'dangerously fast', and even these carried no regular armament. By November 1918, two-gun fighters capable of 120 m.p.h. were standard, and individual designs for more specialised duties had made their appearance. The airmen and aircraft of the First World War - the first air war - h a v e a special place in history which has perhaps bcome over-glamourised. Certainly there were outstanding aeroplanes and heroic airmen, but in both the human and technical fields of aeronautical endeavour 1914-1919 was very much a period of t ri al a nd er ror in which, in the words of one great pioneer, 'some of were lucky and some of us weren't'. Such, too, was the expansion of the combatant air forces, once it was realised how decisive a role aircraft were playing in the overall wa r e ffo rt, th a t f or the first time on any scale organised flying training became a necessity, creating a demand for 'school' aeroplanes in ever-increasing numbers. The 80 aircraft in this volume reflect the evolution of such machines throug hou t th e fi rst trul y form ative period of military aviation history. The period 1914-1919 is selected so as to include certain important types designed during the war, but which arrived too late for combat service." Cigarette odor, light brown ing to ed ges o f pa ges a nd text block, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light edge wear, light browning on spine and flap-folds - very light elsewhere. Good+/Good+

156 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, reproductions. "(B)y time and chance Wilkie (Royce Clifford Wilkinson) was to be involved in some of the greatest events in the twentieth century. He flew in the great air battles over France and Britain with No.1's and 3 (F) Squadrons, and was credited with destroying 9 2/3 enemy aircraft in one week. He helped form two American 'Eagle' Squadrons No.'s 71 and 121 and formed the first Hurricane fighter/bomber Squadron No.174. When shot down in 1942 he baled out at about 150 feet and made his escape through France and Spain to Gibralter, going almost everywhere by train and car in broad daylight, and in his own words 'I had a lovely time'. He formed one of the Mobile Airfields of 2nd. TAF for the invasion of Europe in 1944 and in the Pacific he led the longest Spitfire raid of the war, a four hour fifty minute flight from Darwin, Australia to Timor Island and back, without loss. He always led from the front and was highly decorated being awarded the O.B.E., D.F.M. and Bar, Croix de Guerre."

London Speed and Sports 1970 851130402 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good+ 
77 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "In 1930, when he was eighteen years old, the author was granted a short service commission in the Royal Air Force and after completing the then one year's flying and ground subjects training he was posted to the famous 25(F) Squadron at Hawkinge. It was here, except for a few months in the Fleet Air Arm, that he spent the remainder of his five year commission flying Siskins and Furies, both single-seater fighters. After completing a Central Flying School course he joined the De Havilland School of Flying as an instructor in 1935 and of the 120 odd pupils he taught to fly at Hatfield, at least a couple were destined to become famous Battle of Britain pilots. Now, forty years since he first soloed and after over 10,000 hours flying on 104 different types of aircraft, he seems very well qualified to discuss some of those long forgotten old 'planes that he flew before rejoining as a Flying Officer on the outbreak of World War II."
