Spitfire vs Bf 109 by Tony Holmes

Book Description

This book will explain what it felt like to be a fighter pilot during those crucial moments of the Battle of Britain flying some of the most iconic planes to have ever graced the skies during a combat when both man and machine were tested to the limit. This volume details the pilots' training, British and German tactics, and the development of the models that were in use at the time - the Spitfire Mk I/II and the Bf 109E. The key elements of both aircraft types are also explored through the first-hand accounts from the men who strapped themselves into these now-legendary machines and became embroiled in the world's first major aerial battle.

J2M Raiden and N1K1/2 Shiden/Shiden-Kai Aces by Tony Holmes J2M Raiden and N1K1/2 Shiden/Shiden-Kai Aces, Paperback (April 2016)

Although seen as a replacement for the A6M Zero-sen carrier-based fighter, the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden was actually designed as a land-based naval interceptor optimised for speed rather than manoeuvrability. Despite suffering heavy losses, the units equipped with new fighter proved that the N1K could more than hold its own against P-38s and F6Fs.
