Arms and Armour, London, 1993, first edition. 224 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w maps, photographs. ISBN 0853689466 "(O)ffers snapshots of UK air defences at ten-yearly intervals, detailing how each (new) threat was perceived and what the response to it was, with a critique of that response and subsequent orders of battle to demonstrate how air defence evolved in real terms. In-depth reviews of the major examples over 75 years include the first German raids on Britain and the development of anti-aircraft arti llery; the appearance of German Heinkel and Dornier bombers in the 1930s and the design of the Hurricane and Spitfire to defeat this threat; and the defence against Soviet Cold War bombers in the form of the Hunter and Bloodhound. The result is a p rogressive history that concludes with the state of current defences and thoughts for the future: how will emerging challenges to the UK and NATO be met and countered? Illustrated with a wide range of photographs of the weapons systems deploy e d t hr ough three quarters of a century, this is an usual and perceptive new assessment, with particular value in this anniversary year for the RAF." Small thin scuff on front board. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has minor rubbing, minor wrinkli ng a t top of flap-folds and spine, very small closed perforation on front flap-fold - archivally taped.

ISBN 0711017867 B&w photographs. "(L)ooks at the expert work carried out by the AIB (Accident Investigation Branch) with special reference to its military investigations, and (Oliver) examines case histories of a variety of different accidents involving aircraft of all three British armed services. Transcripts of official AIB reports are also included for 15 recent accidents which reveal the painstak ing process involved. A comprehensive log of all British military aircraft accidents since 1966 (to the time of printing) is a major feature of the book, supported by a selection of photographs which have not seen widespread publication befor e . D e spite major advances in technology, (this book) illustrates the fact that aircraft are still crashing due to technical and human error, and the task of the AIB is probably more complicated than it ever was before." Very light rubbing on bo ar ds , o ne small and one very small indentation on rear board. Very Good., Ian Allan, London, 1990, first edition., Airlife, Shrewsbury, 1992, first edition. 203 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1853101664 B&w photographs. "There are few airbases that do not possess a gate guard - an old aircraft, usually positioned near the gate of the base and 'up a pole' in an attempt to portray the normal flying attitude of the aircraft. Enthusiasts in the United Kingdom are particularly lucky that the RAF has such a positive attitude towards the preservation and maintenance of the often historic aircraft in its care. Ranging from WWII f ighters and bombers - Spitfires, Hurricanes, Shackletons and Lancasters - to more recent sophisticated jet aircraft such as the English Electric Lighning, Jaguar and Phantom; these aircraft represent a living piece of RAF history." Arranged a l p h a b e tically by airbase for 1991, with a section on former RAF Gate Guards and Selected Individual Histories. Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and fl ap f ol ds , li gh t rubbing. Very Good/Very Good-., Airlife, Shrewsbury, 1992, first edition.
