Re: Favorite Aircraft History Books?

Getting back to the original topic, One of my favourites.

Vultee Vengeance by Peter C Smith, Smithsonian Press.

Lovely book on a rare type. Infact the ONLY book on this type. .Ample coverage of technical aspects as well as operations in all theatres. I was suitably impressed by the amount of detail on Indian Air Force Operations, which is not the case with most of the other types. I would recommend the book any day.

De Havilland Vampire by David Watson

Another great book, one of the only two on this Type I would guess. nice drawings, and great production info. Also has some good info on my area of interest - Indian Air Force Ops after 1947.

Hello,

Also for me this is one of my favourite WWII-era aircraft and of course I know am unique man with such an fascination. :-)

Would not you like to drop a line about the content of this book? Does it contain the plans of the Vengeance variants for the modellers?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best

E.
