Book Description

Staffordshire has a long history of involvement in aviation. In 1916 the Royal Flying Corps arrived in the county in response to the threat of Zeppelin attacks during the First World War. The contribution of the county's airfields to the Second World War was enormous, and between 1939 and 1945 they were kept continually active in a variety of roles necessary to the national war effort.

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.
