Winged Sabres is the story of a RFC & RAF squadron flying the cumbersome FE2 from February 1916 to September 1917, and then the superlative Bristol Fighter: a two-seater 'fighter-reconnaissance' squadron with an astonishingly high success rate. 20 Squadron was possibly the highest scoring squadron of the war and one of the most highly decorated, claiming over 600 combat victories with well over 400 confirmed in RFC & RAF Communiqu├ęs. Its members won seventy gallantry decorations including a posthumous Victoria Cross, and included fliers from the U.K. and around the world. Over 40 became aces, including the American Iaccaci brothers and some Canadians and others. But with a casualty rate of around 50% including killed, wounded and POW they paid a high price. Over 15 years research has gone into this book, covering a seldom-explored aspect of WW1 in the air: the two-seater fighter-reconnaissance squadrons. 20 Squadron's motto was Facta Non Verba - Deeds Not Words!

This is the story of the first jet versus jet war, the largest in number of victories and losses, and one of the few military bright spots in the Korean War. It tells how an outnumbered force of F-86 Sabres limited by range and restricted by the rules of engagement, decisively defeated its foe. Based on the latest scholarship, author Kenneth Werrell uses previously untapped sources and interviews with sixty former F-86 pilots to explore new aspects of the subject and shed light on controversies previously neglected. For example, he found much greater violation of the Yalu River than thus far has appeared in the published materials. The F-86 became a legend in "The Forgotten War" because of its performance and beauty, but most of all, because of its record in combat.

Dr. Moebius, a madman with a flair for the absurd, creates a Holographic, simulated Universe that he calls ProbablePolis, and then promptly kidnaps his senior lab assistant, Dr. Limberly Rondell, to vanishes into it for all time. Limberly's husband, Shard Rondell, a special forces commando with the MoonClock Project, goes in after her through the MoonClock Gate and is never heard from again. Moebius thinks he has all bases covered, but he's done far too good a job of programming the LOGOS, an autonomous sentient software program that runs all ProbablePolis; the LOGOS manages to figure out how to coax the Rondells ten year old daughter, little Nowar Rondell, to come into the breach to help save her Mother and Father, and hopefully, all of ProbablePolis... This book is a Theosophany of sorts, an adventurous journey through metaphysical pop culture, combining elements of humor, quantum physics, gnosticism, history, mythology, geometry, musicology and fantasy into what could otherwise be misconstrued as an exercise in an action-adventure.

Helicopters: An Illustrated History of Their Impact covers the development of helicopters from the first successful machines in the early 1900s to their current status as a key component of combat planning around the world and as one of the military's most versatile and effective tools. Helicopters is a story of ongoing innovation in the face of stubborn resistance. Time and again, helicopter designers developed more capable rotorcraft and then had to lobby skeptical military planners to get them deployed. With expert analysis of all significant models, colorful portrayals of key figures in the evolution of helicopters, and vivid images of rotorcraft on the drawing board and in action, this revealing volume shows how an often denigrated machine became an essential military asset around the world, as well as an important tool in a number of areas, from police work to medical evacuation to farming.
