La-5/7 vs Fw 190. Eastern Front 1942-45. Duel 39
Paperback; September 2011; 80 pages
Soviet fighter aviation suffered terribly at the hands of the Jagdwaffe in the first year of the war in the east and, with the arrival of JG 51 and its Fw 190s on the Stalingrad Front in September 1942, things only got worse. However, help was on its way in the form of the La-5.
Duel 38. P-40 Warhawk vs Bf 109. MTO 1942-44 Pb
P-40 Warhawk vs Bf 109. MTO 1942-44. Duel 38
Paperback; August 2011; 80 pages
Although the P-40 and the Bf 109 joined the air war over North Africa at nearly the same time in 1941, the German fighter had already racked up a considerable combat career, dating back to 1937 in Spain. In contrast, the P-40 was a bit of an unknown quantity and was making its combat debut in the hands of the RAF’s Desert Air Force. Discover how the huge differences between the veteran Bf 109 and the new P-40 determined the tactics they adopted and the ultimate outcome of their epic confrontation in this new book. The author covers all aspects of the aerial battle, from the small, agile Bf 109’s ability to operate more effectively at high altitudes through to the P-40’s advantage in manoeuvrability, which outweighed its poor high altitude performance.
Duel 36 SPAD VII vs Albatros D III. Pb
SPAD VII vs Albatros D III. Duel 36
Paperback; April 2011; 80 pages
When originally conceived, the French SPAD VII and German Albatros D II represented steps away from an emphasis on manoeuvre in aerial combat in favour of speed and durability. At the end of 1916, however, Albatros tried to have the best of both worlds. The result combined the better downward view and manoeuvrability of the Nieuport with the power and twin machine guns of the Albatros D II. At the same time, the French worked to improve the SPAD VII with more power and a more reliable cooling system before moving on to the twin-gunned SPAD XIII.

Duel 29 Hurricane I vs Bf 110. Paperback.
Hurricane I vs Bf 110. Duel 29
Paperback; December 2010; 80 pages
The Hurricane was the RAF’s first monoplane fighter and saw significant combat during the fight over France and the Battle of Britain. One of its principal opponents in 1940 was the Bf 110 twin-engined, two-seat heavy fighter. Following the invasion of France, these fighters clashed regularly as the RAF’s Hurricanes attacked German bomber formations defended by Bf 110. Although the Hurricane had the upper hand when it came to manoeuverability, the Bf 110 outclassed it in terms of fire power, with its mix of machine guns and cannon. This is the story of the dramatic battles in the skies over France and the Channel as Britain desperately tried to hold back the German onslaught from her shores.

Duel 26. P-38 Lightning vs Ki-61 Tony, New Guinea 1943-44
P-38 Lightning vs Ki-61 Tony, New Guinea 1943-44. Duel 26.
Illustrators: Jim Laurier and Gareth Hector
With its distinctive, twin-tailed design, the P-38 was one of the most recognizable fighter aircraft of World War II. It was also one of the best. The perfect balance of speed, firepower and range, it made a formable opponent during the crucial battles for the Solomon Islands and New Guinea. In response, the Japanese worked with the Germans to develop the Ki-61, a heavy air superiority fighter with an impressive array of firepower. In head-to-head match-ups, the P-38 proved the superior fighter, but individual duels often came down to the ability and experience of the individual pilots. This book recreates these fast, deadly duels in the skies of the Pacific using dramatic artwork and first-hand accounts.
Duel 25. Fw 200 Condor vs Atlantic Convoy, 1941-43
Fw 200 Condor vs Atlantic Convoy, 1941-43. Duel 25.
Authors: Robert Forczyk and Tim Brown.
Illustrators: Tony Bryan, Howard Gerrard, Ian Palmer
After the fall of France in 1940, Germany attempted to strangle Britain into submission by attacking the Atlantic Convoys, which brought much need supplies and war materiel from the USA and Canada. While the U-boats attacked from beneath the seas, the Germans modified a civilian airliner to create the Fw-200 Condor to attack from the skies. By the summer of 1941, the Condor attacks had succeeded to the extent that Winston Churchill called them ‘the scourge of the Atlantic’. This book discusses the development of the Condor, and analyzes the various Allied responses, including the development of the Hurricat, a modified hurricane that could be launched via catapult from modified merchant ships.
