FURY FROM THE NORTH:
                             THE NORTH KOREAN AIR FORCE IN THE KOREAN WAR

By Douglas C. Dildy

It was almost 1500 hours, on 25 June 1950, when nine Yakovlev Yak-9P fighters of the Korean People’s Air Force (KPAF) simultaneously attacked Seoul International Airport and the Kimpo Airfield outside Seoul, the capital of South Korea. The Yaks shot up ground installations and strafed a Douglas C-54 transports of the US Air Force involved in evacuation of US citizens from the war-stricken country. The Yaks returned to finish off the C-54 at around 1900 hours. Thus began the aerial component of the Korean War. The story of KPAF’s coming into being and its involvement in the Korean War remain mostly unknown until now.

OSPREY CAMPAIGN 339: KOS AND LEROS 1943

by Anthony Rogers & Darren Tan

An illustrated account of the autumn 1943 battle for the Dodecanese, as Winston Churchill attempted to secure the Aegean islands in the wake of the Italian armistice. The occupation was a gamble intended to increase pressure against Germany and at the same time provide encouragement for Turkey to join the Allies. Spearheaded by the Special Boat Squadron and the Long Range Desert Group, garrison troops were deployed to the Italian-occupied Dodecanese, but they were too late to prevent the Germans from taking control of the key island of Rhodes and its all-important airfields. An all-out German offensive followed. Air force and naval units supported a series of assaults by infantry and paratroopers, including specialist forces of the Division Brandenburg. Within three months, only Castelorizzo was still in British hands. Rhodes, Kos and Leros remained under German occupation until May 1945 and the end of the war in Europe.

PANZERS IN BERLIN

by Lee Archer & Robert Kraska





This is the most complete study of the role of Panzers in the Battle of Berlin. The book is lavishly illustrated with 360 mostly unpublished photographs that take the reader from the retreat at Seelow to collecting wrecks from central Berlin. Years of painstaking research and a network of like-minded researchers from across the globe have enabled the authors to piece together the who, where and why, including lists of wrecks documented by the military government in the immediate post-war period. In addition to informative text and hundreds of photos, many pages include a QR code enabling readers to point a smartphone camera at the code to show the scene today, while a separate map shows Berlin as it was in 1945 and plots the locations of the wrecks. To complete the coverage, acclaimed military artist Felipe Rodna has created sixteen pages of specially-commissioned artwork. The book is also co-authored by Mario Lippert

New in illustrated boards - large landscape format, 392pp, 360 b/w photos, 16 colour artworks, 4 maps
