The Mighty Eighth – A Glimpse of the Men, Missions & Machines of the U.S. Eighth Air Force 1942-1945

The Mighty Eighth

The heroics of the airmen who served in the United States 8th Air Force and fought in the embattled skies of Europe during World War II are legendary. When in 1942 they commenced their campaign against Nazi Germany, their arrival sent a deep shudder of despair through the German High Command. For the next three years, while RAF Bomber Command bombed at night, by day the American Eighth Air Force pounded the enemy war machine to its knees until, by May 1945, victory had finally been won.

This commemorative book provides a unique glimpse into the lives of some of the men and machines that fought in that bitter, often titanic struggle, together with some of the extraordinary missions they flew.

Beautifully illustrated using an unparalleled collection of paintings, drawings and specially created maps from the archives of the Military Gallery, this book is not simply a collection of artwork; first and foremost it is an historically accurate recollection of events, painstakingly researched with the assistance of leading historians.

Who's Who in the Age of Alexander & His Successors – From Chaironeia to Ipsos (338-301 BC) – Waldemar Heckel – Definitive Biographical Reference Work on the Life & Campaigns of Alexander the Great

Alexander

Who's Who in the Age of Alexander and his Successors is a unique compilation of more than 1,150 concise biographies of the men and women involved in the life and campaigns of Alexander the Great, and the struggle for power after his death. From leading commanders in Alexander's army to the nobles of the Persian Empire, and the many other individuals he encountered throughout his life and reign, these complete and balanced biographies by a renowned Canadian scholar are drawn from the literary and epigraphic sources of the age.

When the first edition of this volume was originally published in 2006 (with some 800 entries), it was acclaimed as a vital reference resource for anyone interested in the period. This second edition has been greatly expanded and substantially revised to widen the coverage of the human and political landscape in which Alexander moved. It is sure to be received as enthusiastically as its predecessor.

Who's Who in the Age of Alexander and his Successors is the only work of its kind in English. It is an essential guide to a fascinating and pivotal historical era, and to one of history's most successful military commanders.

Modern Taiwanese Air Power – The Republic of China Air Force Today – Roy Choo, Peter Ho

Modern Taiwanese Air Power

The sovereign status of Taiwan – or the Republic of China – has been a source of instability in the Asia-Pacific region for much of the last 70 years. While Taiwan aspires to be an independent and democratic nation, the communist-led People's Republic of China sees it as a breakaway province. With Beijing flexing its muscles in recent years amid rising tensions between China and the U.S., the potential for a military flashpoint along the narrow Taiwan Strait cannot be overstated.

The strategy of the Republic of China Armed Forces is to present Beijing with a credible deterrent, and should this fail, defend against a People's Liberation Army attack and possible invasion. The Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF) is charged with the defense of airspace over and around Taiwan and enabling military operations in land and sea domains. If necessary, it could also take the battle into China as part of a multi-pronged offensive effort.

While the ROCAF is relatively well-equipped and trained, attempts to modernize have been hit by political and fiscal challenges. The ROCAF has made some headway with mid-life upgrades for the majority of its more than 20-year-old fighter fleet, and will receive a much-needed boost with the introduction of F-16C/D Block 70s in the coming years. However, it still lacks many force-multiplier capabilities such as aerial refueling and electronic warfare. Amid qualitative and quantitative improvements to the PLA air combat fleets, the military balance across the Taiwan Strait continues to tip towards Mainland China.

This book provides a comprehensive study of Taiwan's air force with in-depth analysis backed by high-quality images. It examines ROCAF combat capabilities today, its aircraft fleet, and what the future holds for the air arm.
