The Aeroplane Collectors’ Archive series is devoted to British monoplane fl ying-boats – we intend to cover biplane ‘boats in a future issue, while the Saro SR.A/1 will also feature in another of this series. One type included here is not a fl ying-boat – the seaplane upper component of the Short-Mayo Composite, but the unit had to be considered as a whole. As in previous Collectors’ Archives, only basic details for each type are given, and we concentrate on providing large and interesting illustrations and cutaway drawings from the Aeroplane and Flight archives, supplementing these where necessary by quality prints from our wider archive and from other sources. We are grateful to the Solent Sky Museum Southampton for their assistance with this volume.

In Level Zero Heroes, Michael Golembesky follows the members of U.S. Marine Special Operations Team 8222 on their assignment to the remote and isolated Taliban stronghold known as Bala Murghab as they conduct special operations in an effort to break the Taliban’s grip on the Valley. What started out as a routine mission changed when two 82nd Airborne Paratroopers tragically drowned in the Bala Murghab River while trying to retrieve vital supplies from an air drop that had gone terribly wrong. In this one moment, the focus and purpose of the friendly forces at Forward Operating Base Todd, where Team 8222 was assigned, was forever altered as a massive clearing operation was initiated to break the Taliban’s stranglehold on the valley and recover the bodies.
From close-quarters firefights in Afghan villages to capturing key-terrain from the Taliban in the unforgiving Afghan winter, this intense and personal story depicts the brave actions and sacrifices of MSOT 8222. Readers will understand the hopelessness of being pinned down under a hail of enemy gunfire and the quake of the earth as a 2000 lb. guided bomb levels a fortified Taliban fighting position.
A powerful and moving story of Marine Operators doing what they do best, Level Zero Heroes brings to life the mission of these selected few that fought side-by-side in Afghanistan, in a narrative as action-packed and emotional as anything to emerge from the Special Operations community contribution to the Afghan War.

Volume 1 deals with the development, deployment, and operations of fighter aircraft between 1945 and 1973, commencing with the F-80 Shooting Star and ending with the development of the F-15 Eagle. Many of these aircraft were employed during the Korean War, the war in Southeast Asia, and during the cold war crisis throughout the world. The origin of each aircraft is noted as well as its most troublesome development, production, and operational problems. Also covered are significant modifications, most of which can be attributed to ever-changing aeronautical technology. The second in a series of encyclopedias of United States Air Force Aircraft and missile systems, this volume covers the developing and fielding of bomber aircraft between 1945 and 1973, commencing with the Convair B-36 Peacemaker and ending with the development of the Rockwell International B-1A.

Gunston writes about the beginings of the jet age, using British, French and American bombers to discuss the challenges in engineering and manufacturing in moving from ~300kt piston aircraft to 600kt and up modern aircraft. He covers all three of the British V Bombers, all of the US strategic bombers through the B-1 and oddities like the French Mirage IV and the A5 Vigilante. Gunston discusses in some detail the engineering choices that were made early in the jet age when it wasn't clear what even the general shape of large jets would be and talks about the engineering organizations that built them.

 Battleship at War: The Epic Story of the USS Washington
Battleship at War: The Epic Story of the USS Washington

Battleship at War: The Epic Story of the USS Washington
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Publishers
1986
Format: PDF
Pages: 404
Language: English
Size: 50.4 MB

Washington was the second of a new class of extremely fast and powerful battleships built after the collapse of the naval limitation treaty. The ship was laid in 1937, commissioned just seven months before Pearl Harbor, and decommissioned after seven very active years. Washington saw service in the North Atlantic, then in all the major campaigns of the Pacific. Musicant, using primarily the ship's log and interviews with dozens of crewmen, has put together an absorbing chronicle of naval war. This is shipboard history; anything that didn't happen on or to the Washington gets short shrift. Musicant is also the author of a history of armored cruisers. Highly recommended for naval buffs and subject collections.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam
Author: Robert Spencer
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)
Regnery Publishing
2005
Format: PDF
Size: 38.2 Mb
Language: English

Everything (well, almost everything) you know about Islam and the Crusades is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academics and Islamic apologists who justify their contemporary political agendas with contrived historical "facts."
But fear not: Robert Spencer refutes popular myths and reveals facts that you won't be taught in school and will never hear on the evening news. He supplies a revealing list of "Books You Must Not Read" (as far as the PC left is concerned), and takes you on a fast-paced politically incorrect tour of Islamic teaching and Crusades history that will give you all the information you need to understand the true nature of the global conflict America faces today.
Bet your teacher never told you:
- Muhammad did not teach "peace and tolerance"-he led armies and ordered the assassination of his enemies
- The Qur'an commands Muslims to make war on Jews and Christians
- The much-ballyhooed "Golden Age" of Islamic culture was largely inspired by non-Muslims
- What is known today as the "Islamic world" was created by a series of brutal conquests of non-Muslim lands
- The Crusades were not acts of unprovoked aggression by Europe against the - Islamic world, but a delayed response to centuries of Muslim aggression
- The jihad continues today: Europe could be Islamic by the end of the twenty-first century
- Ex-Muslims must live in fear even in the United States

Brother Against Brother - The War Begins (The Civil War Series)
Time Life Books
1983
Format: PDF
Pages: 184
Language: English
Size: 34.1 MB

This first volume in the Time-Life series on The Civil War begins with at look at "The Two Americas" in a series of contemporary paintings of a nation about to tear itself apart. Chapter 1, "One Nation, Divisible," sets up the slavery issue, from the establishment of the Mason-Dixon line to the Compromise of 1850, ending with a gallery of the noted abolitionists of the day. Chapter 2, "The Avenging Angel," focuses on the life and legacy of John Brown. Chapter 3, "Lincoln of Illinois," explains how Lincoln came to be the nominee of the Republican Party and won the Presidential election of 1860. Chapter 4, "Storm over Sumter," details the first crisis of the Lincoln's new administration over the Federal fort in the middle of Charleston harbor. Chapter 5, "The Guns Have Spoken," relates the actual attack that started the Civil War. In many regards this first volume by William C. Davis and the Editors of Time-Life Books is the most disappointing one in the series, simply because it necessarily glosses over the events leading to Fort Sumter. Trying to deal with Lincoln in a single chapter seems quite inadequate to the task, but then it is probably safe to assume the Civil War buffs reading these books know plenty on that particular subject. However, this book does set the tone for the series, including dozens of contemporary drawings, etchings, pamphlets, maps, photographs and the like to illustrate the text.
