  • Malta: The Spitfire Year 1942 (signed by Christopher Shores)

    Christopher Shores, Brian Cull and Nicola Malizia

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores. 

    At last, here is the second volume of the dramatic story of the air battle for Malta during World War II, written by the acknowledged experts in the field and long-awaited by enthusiasts and specialist historians alike. The long battle had begun in June 1940 with the Italian declaration of war on the Allies, and the consequent decision of the Axis powers to subdue the island in order to control the Mediterranean. The Spitfire Year now takes up where The Hurricane Years left off, and concludes in enormous detail day-by-day the history of the struggle for the island, and the final success of the Allies and islanders themselves in raising the siege.

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

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores, Giovanni Massimello, Russell Guest & Frank Olynyk.  

    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.

  • Hawker Hurricane Survivors (featuring bookplate signed by Gordon Riley and Wg Cdr Tim Elkington)

    Gordon Riley

    This edition of Hawker Hurricane Survivors includes a specially designed adhesive bookplate that has been signed by both the author, Gordon Riley and Wg Cdr Tim Elkington, who wrote the book’s foreword. 

    With 2015 being the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain – arguably the Hawker Hurricane’s ‘finest hour’ – it is appropriate to tell the story of the surviving Hurricanes from around the world. Building on research originally started thirty years ago, the author has delved into the archives to amass new information – and in the process managed to identify positively one particular Hurricane which had proved elusive for more than forty years.

  • Nimrod: Rise and Fall (signed by Tony Blackman)

    Tony Blackman

    This book is signed by the author, Tony Blackman 

    The full story of the Nimrod, and its significance, has now been told. Tony Blackman, who was there at the beginning, test-flew nearly every aircraft and was at Kinloss on the very day the project was cancelled, has written this timely book, covering every facet of its history, its weapons system developments and its tragic accidents. He writes in an approachable way, making technical subjects understandable but his conclusions will, inevitably, not be welcomed by everyone.
