A BUNCH OF FIVE

by Frank Kitson

This is Frank Kitson's Autobiography of his military career from Kenya to Cyprus. He described his involvement in Kenya in detail in 'Gangs and Countergangs', but 'Bunch of Five' fills in the historical background for his involvement in Malaya, Aden, and Cyprus. These conflicts informed the theory of counter insurgency which he put forward in his renowned work, 'Low Intensity Operations'. This book includes details about his involvement in these conflicts which the reader is unlikely to find elsewhere.

Book Club Associates dustjacket but the book is actually the Faber and Faber edition.

OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 60: ISRAELI F-4 PHANTOM ACES

by Shlomo Aloni. Illustrated by Jim Laurier




The F-4E Phantom II was used by the Israelis in the air-to-ground role and in air-to-air missions. Despite performing these roles with equal success the Israeli reliance on the Mirage III and Nesher delta fighters meant that the F-4 was used mostly in its air-to-ground role. The kill total of the Israeli F-4 community was, consequently, a modest 116.5; significantly lower than that of other Israeli aircraft types in service between 1969 and 1982. A handful of aces were, nevertheless, created and, using first hand accounts, this unique book tells their stories.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 172: US FAST BATTLESHIPS 1938-91,
                                                                                      THE IOWA CLASS

by Lawrence Burr

In 1938, the United States abandoned the constraints imposed by the Washington Teaty and began work on a new class of super-battleships. This book covers the design, construction, and employment of the four Iowa-class battleships, the largest in the American fleet. During World War II, they served as guards for the aircraft carriers and their bombardments provided cover for the numerous landings in the Pacific. At the war's end, the Japanese signed their surrender on the decks of an Iowa-class battleship, the USS Missouri. After World War II, the ships continued to serve, providing support during Korea, Vietnam, and even the first Gulf War. This book tells the full story of the greatest of the American battleships.

OSPREY NEW VANGUARD 169: US FAST BATTLESHIPS 1936-47,
                          THE NORTH CAROLINA AND SOUTH DAKOTA CLASSES

by Lawrence Burr 


This volume details the design, construction, and operation of the first six of the ten US fast battleships, two of the North Carolina class and four of the South Dakota class. These six battleships were all authorized in 1936 and were the first vessels built in the US since 1923. Consequently, these ships benefited from enormous technological leaps, with improvements in ship design, power, armor, armament and the single most important improvement the use of radar guided fire control helping to change the course of the war in the Pacific. Packed with first-hand accounts, battle reports, and specially created artwork this book tells the story of these war-winning vessels.

D-DAY GLIDERS: LES PLANEURS AMERICAINS DU JOUR J

by Philippe Esvelin





Operation Overlord was a watershed in the history of World War II. Neglected by historians, American glider pilots played a pivotal role in Operation Neptune, the assault phase of Overlord. From being called up in the US, to combat landings and fighting in the Normandy countryside, the author uses documents and eyewitness accounts to tell the story of these brave men who flew the gliders which transported troops onto the field of battle.
