THE EFFECTS OF THE ATOMIC BOMBS AT HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI:
                                                  REPORT OF THE BRITISH MISSION TO JAPAN

The official report of a British delegation to Japan, whose mission was to observe the devastating effects of the 1945 Atom bombing. The purpose of the survey was "to point to general conclusions on the effects to be expected from similar atomic bombs, should they fall in Great Britain." Included are twenty-four images of the damage done to various properties, including the infamous "shadows" of both humans and objects seared onto the sides of buildings by the scorching light and heat of the detonations which occurred at a height of nearly 2000 feet above the cities.

Very scarce.

KENT & THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN

by Robin J. Brooks


An account of the long, hot Summer of 1940. Kent was at the centre of the storm as Goering's mighty Luftwaffe was met by the steely tenacity of the RAF's Hurricanes and Spitfires. The courage of the brave young fighter pilots is well known. But supporting them on the ground were countless ordinary men and women. They maintained the airfields, they fought the fires, they restored essential services, tended the wounded and cared for the homeless. This book recalls the days of anxiously watching the vapour trails of dogfights in blue skies above Kent's towns and villages.

SPITFIRE PILOT

by Flt. Lt David M. Crook, DFC 


"Spitfire Pilot" was written in 1940 in the heat of battle when the RAF stood alone against the might of Hitler's Third Reich. It is a tremendous personal account of one of the fiercest and most idealised air conflicts, the Battle of Britain, seen through the eyes of a pilot of the famous 609 Squadron, which shot down over 100 planes in that epic contest. Often hopelessly outnumbered, Crook and his colleagues committed acts of unimaginable bravery against the Luftwaffe. Many did not make it and the author describes the absence they left in the squadron, with great poignancy.
