|Ground Attack Aircraft of World War II|
£3.50 + £2.90 P&P
Good book with fair dust cover
With the outbreak of World War II the initially spectacular successes of the German dive-bombers overshadowed the need for close support aircraft but as the war continued ground attack began to play an increasingly more vital role in every military operation. Machines used for this purpose ranged from ground-strafing fighters and fighter-bombers to specially-designed armoured ground attack aircraft represented by the formidable Ilyusian series and Henschel Hs 129 B; improvised but highly successful anti-tank adaptations such as the Hurricane IID and Junkers Ju 87G; and the devastatingly effective rocket-firing Typhoons over Western Europe. Ground attack also became an important part of campaigns in the South-West pacific and in Burma, culminating in the use of Napalm.

|Wild Weasel Fighter Attack|
£8 + £2.90 P&P
Detecting and destroying enemy Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) and radar is arguably the most dangerous mission that any pilot can undertake. Tactics differ with air forces, but the general principal is to fly a formation of aircraft into an area where the enemy's air defences are strong, wait for their radar to illuminate the aircraft and then launch a volley of anti-radiation missiles to destroy the radar and thus blind the SAMs and air defences.
Very good quality book and dust cover; not price-clipped.
