  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume One (Signed)

    Christopher Shores

    Giovanni Massimello and Russell Guest

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores.

    It is now more than 40 years since “Fighters over the Desert” was published, and nearly as long since this was followed by “Fighters over Tunisia”. Both volumes have long been out of print and collectors’ items, but, despite much prompting, Christopher Shores has resolutely refused to permit their reprinting until he amassed so much more information. He has also long nursed a desire to expand the coverage to encompass the operations of the other types of aircraft involved in this interesting and important theatre of war – the bombers, reconnaissance aircraft and maritime units. Further, it is his intention to extend the period covered to include the later operations over Sicily, Italy, the Aegean area, the Balkans and Southern Europe. This then represents the first volume of a seminal series dealing with all these aspects and areas, which will also tie in with the earlier ‘Grub Street’ volumes which he and his collaborators have produced.

  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume Three

    Christopher Shores Giovanni Massimello, Russell Guest, Frank Olynyk and Winfried Bock

    The third volume in this series returns to November 1942 to explain the background to the first major Anglo-American venture – Operation Torch, the invasion of French North Africa. It deals with the fratricidal combats which followed the initial landings in Morocco and Algeria for several days. It then considers the efforts made – unsuccessfully in the event – to reach northern Tunisia before the Germans and Italians could get there to forestall the possibility of an attack from the west on the rear of the Afrika Korps forces, then beginning their retreat from El Alamein.

  • A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, Volume Two (signed)

    Christopher Shores, Giovanni Massimello, Russell Guest, Frank Olynyk & Winfried Bock

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores.  

    The first volume of this series dealt with the initial 19 months of the air war over the Western Desert of North Africa. This volume picks up the story as the 8th Army, following its hard-fought success in Operation Crusader, was forced back to the Gazala area, roughly mid-way between the Cyrenaican/Tripolitanian border of Libya and the frontier with Egypt. It covers the lull prior to the disastrous defeat of the 8th Army in June 1942 and the loss of the important port and fortress of Tobruk.
