    £20.00

  3. COLD WAR INTERCEPTOR BY DAN SHARP
    £27.50

    The West was stunned when the Soviet Union dropped its first atomic bomb in August 1949 and a year later the Korean War showcased Russia's incredible technological progress in the form of the MiG-15 - a fighter capable of besting anything the RAF had to offer at that time. In the wake of the Second World War, funding for the RAF's Fighter Command had fallen away dramatically but now there was an urgent need for new jet fighters to meet the threat of Russian bombers head-on.

  4. D-DAY BOMBERS: THE VETERANS' STORY BY STEVE DARLOW
    £25.00

It is told using considerable first-hand experience from the veterans of the campaign, something not really covered in any other books on the subject, together with background information from primary source documents on the tactics and strategy employed before, during and after the invasion.

  6. DE HAVILLAND MOSQUITO HAYNES MANUAL
    £25.00

    Mosquito. The very name says it all: home in on your target at speed – often undetected – sting hard, turn around and scarper, outwitting the enemy's attempts to swipe you out of the sky by virtue of your speed and manoeuvrability. If ever an aircraft was aptly named, it is the de Havilland DH 98 Mosquito.
