Island Books 1861470762 / 9781861470768 Pictorial Boards As New As New Ref B85 
During WW2 the science of aviation advanced more rapidly than in any other similar period in history. The planes described in this book, such as the Supermarine Spitfire, Messerschmitt 109, North American P-51 Mustang, and Boeing B-17 Flying fortress, emerged as the truly outstanding designs of that period. The reader can trace the course of each plane’s design, its development, its introduction into service and its subsequent career in action. Each aircraft is described in detail, with a cutaway drawing to show its construction. Includes numerous eyewitness accounts from pilots, and more than 500 carefully chosen photos. This is a remainder book which is new and never used. It may have a remainder mark on the edge of the pages. 256 pp.

The RAF Pathfinders, Martyn Chorlton
11 Martyn Chorlton The RAF Pathfinders
Newbury Countryside Books 2012 1846742013 / 9781846742019 First Paperbak New A111 
The formation of the Pathfinder force in August 1942 produced a steady but certain change in the fortunes of Bomber Command. During the early years of the war, aerial photographs showed that less than one third of the aircraft were successfully placing their bombs with accuracy. Led by the inspirational and imaginative Don Bennett, Pathfinders were equipped with the best available aircraft, which included the famous Lancaster bomber and later, increasingly, the Mosquito. Martyn Chorlton has written a gripping account of the RAF's Pathfinder squadrons, recalling the often reckless heroism of the young aircrew and the challenges they faced in the smoke-filled skies over occupied Europe.

Bletchley Park - The Code-Breakers of Station X, Michael Smith
12 Michael Smith Bletchley Park - The Code-Breakers of Station X
Shire Library 2013 0747812152 / 9780747812159 Paper Back New Book Ref Office 210 x 149 mm, 132 grams 
Bletchley Park, known to those who worked there as Station X, was the scene of one of the greatest Allied triumphs of the Second World War. The breaking of the Nazi Enigma cyphers by Britain's wartime code-breakers continues to fascinate, with well over 100,000 people visiting the scene of their successes every year. Bletchley Park provided the intelligence that ensured Allied victories in the Battle of Atlantic, the war in North Africa and, most crucially, the D-Day invasion of Europe, and it was also the birthplace of the modern computer. The code-breakers were led by men like Dilly Knox and Alan Turing, but also included thousands of 'ordinary' people, the vast majority of them young women. This book contains previously unpublished photographs showing them at work and play. It not only explains how their work influenced the battle against Nazi Germany and its Italian and Japanese allies, but also describes how they lived and loved.
