WAFFEN-SS TIGER CREWS AT KURSK

by Colonel French L. MacLean

An account of the men of SS Panzer Regiments 1, 2, and 3 in Operation Citadel, July 5–15, 1943. Kursk is often labeled the “Greatest Tank Battle in History”. The Wehrmacht fielded a    total of 120 Tiger tanks during the engagement, including 35 from the 2nd SS Panzer Corps. This corps comprised of the three most controversial divisions of the Second World War: Leibstandarte, Das Reich, and Totenkopf. By examining a focused group of men in great detail, specifically the 226 Tiger crewmen at Kursk, the author provides an insight into the sprawling and enigmatic organization that was the Waffen-SS. He scrapes away the mythology surrounding these most feared soldiers, who crewed the most iconic tank of the Second World War.

WISE WITHOUT EYES

by Kevin Mears


Formed in 1916, 37 Squadron, Royal Air Force came to the fore in World War II, taking part in the armed reconnaissance of the German Battle Fleet at Wilhelmshaven just hours after the declaration of war on 3rd September, 1939. Commencing their wartime operations with Harrows and Wellingtons, and transitioning to Liberators in 1942, they served with distinction in the Norwegian campaign, North Africa, Sicily, Italy, and the campaign against the Balkan oilfields. This history is based on the diaries of Frank Sullivan who served as a rear gunner, and founded the squadron association.

WORLD WAR ONE AIRCRAFT CARRIER PIONEER

by Guy Warner

Jack McCleery, born in Belfast in 1898, joined the RNAS in 1916 as a Probationary Flight Officer. During the next ten months he completed his training, gaining his wings as a Sub-Lieutenant. In July 1917 he was posted to the new aircraft carrier HMS Furious, which would be based at Scapa Flow and Rosyth. He served in this ship until February 1919, flying Short 184 seaplanes and then Sopwith 1½ Strutters, also flying other types from various shore stations. He witnessed the world’s first carrier strike mission, the 1918 Tondern raid, and took part in more than a dozen sweeps into the North Sea and reconnaissance missions off the coast of Denmark.

OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES 83: MALTA SPITFIRE ACES

by Steve Nichols




The siege of Malta during World War II is one of the great epics of aerial warfare. Described in 1942 as both a 'fighter pilot's paradise' and 'the most bombed place on earth', Malta suffered 154 consecutive days and nights of bombing, 100 nights more that London suffered during the Blitz. The destruction of Axis convoys by Malta-based aircraft proved to be one of the decisive factors in the defeat of Rommel's forces in North Africa. This vital position would have been lost if it had not been for the successful defence of the island by a handful of greatly outnumbered Royal Air Force fighter squadrons. This book details the heroic story of the Spitfire Aces based on Malta.
