Radar at Sea Derek Howse 1993-02-09 This book tells in non-technical language how the British Navy contributed to the development of naval radar in World War 2. Addressed to the general reader, it tells not only the technical story in simple terms, but also of the operational use of shipborne radar at sea - for warning, for fire control, for fighter direction, for navigation, in all theatres of war - and particularly about the people who designed and fitted the equipment, and those who used it at sea.
Gotterdammerung Brett Green 2006 Photos of aircraft scrap heaps, or "graveyards", taken by advancing Allied troops in North Africa and Europe from 1942 onwards, is a subject of proven popularity with aircraft enthusiasts and modelers. These scrap heaps often contained rare mixes of aircraft bearing unit markings and schemes not seen in more conventional and well-known views. Sometimes these photos serve to disprove previous theories. Where possible, this book provides before and after photos of the aircraft featured, showing it in service as well as in its "graveyard" condition. Aircraft covered in this book include all types – fighters, bombers, nightfighters, transports, and maritime aircraft, and some of hte photos feature aircraft shot down over British soil, particularly during the Battle of Britain. Many of the book's photos also come from the period following the defeat of the Third Reich.

Samurai vs Ashigaru Stephen Turnbull 2019-11-28 During the 16th century, Japan underwent a military revolution, characterized by the deployment of large armies, the introduction of firearms and an eventual shift towards fighting on foot. This study encapsulates these great changes through an exploration of the experience on the ground at three key battles, Uedahara (1548), Mikata ga Hara (1573) and Nagashino (1575), in which two very different types of warrior were pitted against each other. On one side were samurai, the elite aristocratic knights whose status was proclaimed by the possession and use of a horse. On the other side were the foot soldiers known as ashigaru, lower-class warriors who were initially attendants to the samurai but who joined the armies in increasing numbers, attracted by loot and glory. These two types of warrior battled for dominance across the period, changing and adapting their tactics as time went on. In this title, the development of the conflicts between samurai and ashigaru is explored across three key battles, where highly trained elite mounted samurai of the Takeda clan faced ashigaru at very different stages in their development. The profound and irreversible changes that took place as the conflicts progressed are analysed in detail, culminating in the eventual incorporation of the ashigaru as the lowest ranks of the samurai class in within the standing army of Tokugawa Japan.

Aircraft Modelling Brett Green 2010-08-24 The aircraft modeling hobby has undergone dramatic changes in the last ten years. New manufacturing technologies and the rise of China have combined to make this a golden age in terms of the variety and availability of models. But these advancements can also make the hobby intimidating for those starting out. In this new edition in Osprey's Masterclass series, Brett Green describes the kits, accessories, decals and references that are now available and demonstrates a wide variety of paint types, thinners and application methods in both words and pictures. He also covers painting effects such as mottling, soft-edged camouflage demarcation, masking and weathering. This is the perfect book for the beginner and the seasoned modeler alike.

Panzergrenadier vs US Armored Infantryman Steven J. Zaloga 2017-01-26 During World War II, the two pre-eminent mechanized infantry forces of the conflict, the German Panzergrenadier arm and the US Army's armoured infantrymen, clashed in France and Belgium after the Normandy landings. These engagements went on to profoundly influence the use of mechanized infantry in the post-war world. Drawing upon a variety of sources, this book focuses on three key encounters between July and December 1944 including during Operation Cobra and the Battle of the Bulge, and examines the origins, equipment, doctrine and combat record of both forces. With specially commissioned full-colour artwork and maps, this study sheds light on the evolving nature of mechanized warfare at the height of World War II.

French Soldier vs German Soldier David Campbell 2020-03-19 On 21 February 1916, the German Army launched a major attack on the French fortress of Verdun. The Germans were confident that the ensuing battle would compel France to expend its strategic reserves in a savage attritional battle, thereby wearing down Allied fighting power on the Western Front. However, initial German success in capturing a key early objective, Fort Douaumont, was swiftly stemmed by the French defences, despite heavy French casualties. The Germans then switched objectives, but made slow progress towards their goals; by July, the battle had become a stalemate. During the protracted struggle for Verdun, the two sides' infantrymen faced appalling battlefield conditions; their training, equipment and doctrine would be tested to the limit and beyond. New technologies, including flamethrowers, hand grenades, trench mortars and more mobile machine guns, would play a key role in the hands of infantry specialists thrown into the developing battle, and innovations in combat communications were employed to overcome the confusion of the battlefield. This study outlines the two sides' wider approach to the evolving battle, before assessing the preparations and combat record of the French and German fighting men who fought one another during three pivotal moments of the 101⁄2-month struggle for Verdun.

The Waffen-SS (2) Gordon Williamson 2012-03-20 The military branch of the Nazi SS security organisation grew by the end of World War II from a handful of poorly regarded infantry battalions in 1939, into a force of more than 30 divisions including units of every type. Their battlefield reputation varied widely, from the premier armoured divisions which formed Germany's utterly reliable spearheads on both main fronts, to low quality 'anti-partisan' units. The divisions covered in this second of four titles include the first mountain and cavalry units, and two of the remarkable new Panzer divisions raised in the great 1943 expansion. Illustrated with rare photographs from private collections, the text details their organisation, uniforms and insignia, and summarises their battle record.

Air Sea Rescue squadrons are dedicated to saving life, not taking it. We were called to recover those lost at sea or crashed in the jungle or rescuing wounded soldiers, survivors of firefights. To accomplish our missions we needed to meet the conditions of weather climate (intense humid heat and tphoons) and gunfire from remanent Jap hold outs and Communist Chineese financed Huks. who were attempting to hi-jack the newly formed Democratic government of the Philippines?
Israeli Soldier vs Syrian Soldier David Campbell 2016-06-16 Israel seized the strategically critical Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six Day War in an audacious and determined operation, yet when the Yom Kippur War broke out the Israeli military were exposed by the effectiveness of the newly confident and dangerous Syrian army. In the Golan only luck, herculean Israeli efforts and tactical misjudgements by the Syrians were to allow the Israelis to maintain control. In this book, three pivotal encounters in the Golan are assessed, supported by artwork, maps and photographs, tracking how both sides' forces evolved over the period.

A-26/B-26 Invader in Action David Doyle 2016-10-31 The Douglas A-26 Invader served the United States with distinction in various combat roles during World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Originally created as an attack aircraft, with the designation A-26, the Invader was designed to replace the A-20 Havoc, North American B-25 Mitchell and the Martin B-26 Marauder for the U.S. Army Air Forces. However, production delays prevented the aircraft from reaching the field until June 1944. With as many as 14 forward-firing .50 caliber machine guns as well as bombs and rockets, the Invader was well-suited for ground strikes when the Korean War broke out in 1951. The Invader flew into combat and carried the markings of the U.S. Air Force as the re-designated B-26. Later, the French used the Invader during their war in Vietnam. Shortly after the United States entered the conflict, Invaders returned to the sky over Vietnam in the hands of American as well as South Vietnamese crews. In order to base the aircraft type in Thailand, which prohibited USAF bombers, the Invader was once more classified as an attack aircraft, and the A-26 designation returned. This new title is profusely illustrated with more than 175 photos, 35 of which are in vintage color, as well as two color profile illustrations and 10 line drawings.

The Romanian Army of World War II Mark Axworthy 1992-03-26 Although Romania had fought for the Allies in World War I with the fall of her allies the Czechs and the French mid-1940 she was forced to join the Axis. A coalition government was formed under General Antonescue who proved to be one of Germany's most effective military allies. The Romanian army saw extensive action and suffered terrible losses in operation Odessa and at Stalingrad. By 1944 the Soviets were within the Romanian borders and the King sued for peace. Romania's defection significantly accelerated the end of World War II. Her natural resources were now denied to Germany and her forces constituted the fourth largest Allied army. this book details the uniforms, equipment and unit organisation of the Romanian army during the entire conflict.
