Martin B-26 Marauder, Paperback (August 2013)

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.
