Luftwaffe at War, Stukas over the Mediterranean 1940-1945

The publisher has produced a number of series based on rare wartime images. The ‘Luftwaffe at War’ is one of these very popular series. The text is clear and concise, but the great strengths are in the aggressive pricing and the fine quality of the images, in this case including full colour images – Strongly Recommended.

Memphis Belle

READ THE FULL REVIEW

This two disc video tells the story of the real Memphis Belle, named for Margaret Polk, and its even more exciting than Hollywood’s fact-inspired version. The First Film Unit of the US Army Air Force made a 45 minute documentary that was first released in 1944 to mark the safe completion of a full tour by the Memphis Belle and her crew. This marks the start of this video and is followed by rare out-takes that include a visit by HM King George VI and HM Queen Elizabeth, a slide show and 90 page downloadable study document. Outstanding & exciting.
