THE SKY SUSPENDED.  THE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN., Middleton, Drew.
203 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.

Soon after war was declared he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and received the Order of the British Empire for flying more than 60 combat missions during the Battle of Britain. After the war (he) returned to the family brewing business. He was Vice-President in 1950, Chairman in 1966 and Director in 1983, contributing greatly to the continued growth of the company. Called to the Senate in 1955 at age 48, he sat as an independent. For the next 38 years he was a very able and influential speaker who was not afraid to voice his opinion. In 1958 Hartland and his brother Tom formed the Molson Foundation to support 'innovative projects in the fields of health and welfare, education and social development, and the humanities'. To the end of his life this fascinating, talented and wealthy man was concerned with fulfilling his responsibility to his family and giving something back to the country in which he had played so large a part."

Times Books, New York, 1979, second printing. 
278 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0812907388 B&w illustrations. "The epic story of how the Twentieth Air Force was built into the most advanced strategic weapon of World War II and the prototype for today's Strategic A ir Command is filled with action, heroic adventures, and technological triumphs. (This book) describes the expert teamwork which offset the tremendous obstacles facing General Henry ('Hap') Arnold, Chief of Army Air Corps, from the outset. T h e B - 2 9 had to be designed, built, tested, and proved in an impossibly short time. But perhaps the greatest enemy of all was geography: The men in General Curtis LeMay's command flew B-29s carrying their own fuel over the Himalayas from Indi a, w he r e th ey were based for operations over China, Southeast Asia, and ultimately, Japan. Replete with firsthand reports and anecdotes, here are accounts of air battles against suicidal Japanese pilots, and of political infighting. The cast of ch ara ct er s i ncl udes supporters such as FDR and General George Marshall, and such prominent wartime figures as Chennault, Stilwell, and Chiang Kai-shek. The author details LeMay's little-known, successful tactic that wiped out virtually e very maj or J apa nes e ci ty l ong before the A-bombs were dropped. (He) argues convincingly that LeMay's strategy made not only the American atom bombing of Japan unnecessary, but also the development and future use of nuclear weapons."

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."

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."

179 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, maps, diagrams. "Combining vivid personal narrative with historical and operational analyses, this book takes a candid look at U.S. naval airpower in the Vietnam War. Authors John B. Nichols, a fighter pilot who flew some 350 missions off carriers in the Gulf of Tonkin, and Barrett Tillman, an award-winning aviation historian, make full use of their extensive knowledge of the subject to detail the ways in which airpower was employed in the years prior to the fall of Saigon. Confronting the conventional belief that airpower failed in Vietnam, they show that on the rare occasions when it was applied correctly, airpower was effective, but because it was most often misunderstood and misapplied, the overall results proved catastrophic. Calling their book a cockpit view of the war with the benefit of fourteen years of hindsight, the authors impart a compelling sense of what it was like to fly from Yankee Station between 1964 and 1973 and provide important lessons for those who may become involved in future conflicts. At the same time, they add considerable facts to the permanent war record." Faint erased pencil mark on half-title page, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny scuff on front board.

Here they will learn, just as th e little boy John did, that airplanes are a lot like birds and a lot like fish too, and they will see how planes are built in a factory. John and his constant companion, the little dog Pogo, were allowed to visit a great airplane plant. T h e i r f r i e nd Mr. Brown let them spend the day there, seeing how a plane grows from a skeleton to its finished state. They rode in the big electric crane that moved high over the factory floor, picking up and delivering plane parts to workm en . T he y w at ch ed t he riveters making everything secure. They found out why an enormously heavy engine can lift a plane into the air and give it the power to fly faster than any bird. Best of all, John and Pogo were invited to ride in a ne w p la ne by th e tes t p ilo t. Inside the cockpit they saw the instrument panel and learned what it was for. It was a grand sky ride, over all too soon. But when they alighted at the factory, Pogo slipped away and got lost - a bad ending for a perf ect da y! Ho w Pogo was fin all y found is the climax of the story which is told as graphically in pictures as in words...." Tiny light mark on page 7, very light edge wear.
