311 Squadron - new book

Hi all, I would like to introduce my new project - first in English - which was just published.

At the same time I would like to thank to all the forum members who helped me in the past with information and photos for this book!

311 Squadron book is a comprehensive resource for those who are interested in Czechoslovak airmen serving in the RAF during the World War Two, particularly in the sole bomber squadron.
Book contains the unit history in details illustrated by more than 220 B&W photos + 5 rare colour photos - many of them published for the first time ever.
It will be worth also for the aeroscale modellers as it contains 25 superb colour profiles of 311 Squadron aircraft (Anson, Wellingtons, Liberators) depicting camouflages and markings used.

The squadron history is completed by following appendixes:

- map of the United Kingdom showing location of all squadron bases
- statistics of missions undertaken both with Bomber and Coastal Command
- list of targets attacked in Germany, Italy and occupied Europe in 1940-42
- map of attacks on German submarines in the Bay of Biscay in 1942-44
- serial numbers and individual letter of all squadron Vickers Wellingtons and Consolidated B-24 Liberators
- squadron Prisoner of War list
- squadron Roll of Honour list
- roster of Flying Personnel with brief service record containing ranks, decorations, period of service including also allied airmen known - over 800 names, published for the first time ever
- details about 311 Squadron crews training

Format B5, 160 pages in total on glossy paper, 24 in colour
