Scottish Airfields in the Second World War by Martyn Chorlton

Book Description

Scotland's contribution to allied success in the Second World War was colossal. The Lothian region employed thousands of workers in the building of warships, aircraft components, military vehicles, munitions, food and coal. This thoroughly researched and action packed book describes the history of the airfields, highlights the work carried out from them and describes the overall effect of the war on the daily lives of local people. It will appeal equally to aviation enthusiasts and to readers who recall the era when Scottish skies throbbed with the drone of departing and returning aircraft.

Bomber Command the Victoria Cross Raids by Martyn Chorlton Bomber Command the Victoria Cross Raids, Paperback (October 2014)

RAF Bomber Command lost 55,000 men during WWII. Their motto was Press on Regardless and the majority of their operational missions involved flying into the fiery, smoke-filled skies of occupied Europe. No less than 23 of their members were awarded Britain's highest decoration for valour The Victoria Cross; most of them posthumously."

Martin B-26 Marauder by Martyn Chorlton Martin B-26 Marauder, Paperback (August 2013)

One of the most underrated medium bombers of the Second World War, the Martin B-26 Marauder never fully managed to shake off an underserved early reputation as a dangerous aircraft to fly. This title deals with this aircraft.

Hawker Hurricane MK I-V by Martyn Chorlton Hawker Hurricane MK I-V, Paperback (February 2013)

At the outbreak of World War II, only 111 Squadron and a handful of others were equipped with the Hurricane. Thanks to sudden massive orders and a well-organized Hawker sub-contracting production to Gloster and General Aircraft, more squadrons rapidly became operational.

Allison-Engined P-51 Mustang by Martyn Chorlton Allison-Engined P-51 Mustang, Paperback (September 2012)

While the introduction of the Merlin engine did improve the Mustang's performance and produce the bubble-canopied fighters with which we associate the name, credit must be given to the Allison-engined variants that preceded it. This book deals with this fighter plane.
