PHANTOM IN THE COLD WAR

by David Gledhill 

 

The McDonnell Douglas F4 Phantom was a true multi-role combat aircraft. Introduced into the RAF in 1968, it was employed in ground attack, air reconnaissance and air defence roles. Later, in the early 1970s, it changed over to air defence. There were seven UK-based squadrons plus the Operational Conversion Unit, two Germany-based squadrons and a further Squadron deployed to the Falkland Islands. Phantom in the Cold War focuses predominantly on the aircraft’s role as an air defence fighter, exploring the ways in which it provided the British contribution to the Second Allied Tactical Air Force at RAF Wildenrath, the home of Nos. 19 and 92 Squadrons.

AIR POWER AT THE BATTLEFRONT:
                                   ALLIED CLOSE AIR SUPPORT IN EUROPE 1943-45

by Ian Gooderson

This book examines the role and effectiveness of aviation in direct support of ground operations in North-West Europe during WWII. The author addresses fundamental questions of whether air resources in the close support role provided sufficient advantage at the battlefront to justify the effort and risk to pilots and aircraft. Did air support prove to be of more value and more cost effective, when directed upon interdiction targets behind the lines, such as German communications, transport and supplies?
