Axis Shipping Attack Aircraft getting underway

About a year ago I picked up a copy of Peter C. Smith’s excellent book Ship Strike: The History of Air-to-Sea Weapon Systems (Airlife Publishing 1998). I’ve always found the subject of shipping attack aircraft and weapons to be fascinating, particularly the equipment of the Axis air forces, from the German Stukas and Hs 293 […]

Axis Bomber Interceptors have landed!

Our second “special issue” of the USAAF Photo Journal is in our hot little hands, even before the first regular issue has even been printed.

The Gun That Shot Down the Axis

I haven’t done much to promote this title (that came out a couple of months ago), so it bears mentioning. For all of you fans of the Browning .50 caliber guns, this is a well illustrated volume that covers the .50 caliber aircraft guns as well as .50 caliber anti-aircraft guns. Fantastic images of the […]

The gun that shot down the Axis

I just got this cool new title in, and shame on me for not telling many people about it ahead of time. This 60-page photo study in our USAAF Photo Journal format covers the famous Browning M2 .50 caliber aircraft machine guns (as well as the .50 caliber MGs used as anti-aircraft guns).

New books in bunches!

Setting Suns III. Grounded Eagles II. Flakpanzers. APG 1946. Just when you thought they’d never get here–they’ve landed! Its always the way, hurry up and wait. But when new books come to me, I become like a crazed dock worker, shuffling boxes around the office, packing up orders and in between banging out blog posts like this.

Grounded Eagles II is almost here!

Long-awaited by many, including me! The book looks great with a large amount of rare late-war aircraft pictured. The book is 204 pages and contains about 350 photos. At almost the last minute I found a great color shot of a Me262 parked just off the autobahn and we decided to use that for the cover. I’ve included a few photos that didn’t make it into the book in this posting… and yes, I’m already working on Grounded Eagles III. I have no idea when GEIII will be done!
