We are happy to present the first volume in our new Aircraft Pictorial Series. This series will be packed with high quality photos of crashed, damaged and captured US, German, Japanese, British, Soviet and French aircraft. The first volume will focus on the USAAF
Our most difficult task in developing the this series was selecting the images for the first book. There were many outstanding photos to choose from, and "competition" for placement became fierce. The end result is a fantastic visual reference for aviation historians, modellers, and other WWII aircraft enthusiasts. All of the classic USAAF fighters and bombers are represented.
The photos speak for themselves, and we don't let extraneous text get in their way apart from short but enlightening captions. Our reader´s ability to drill down to the most intricate level of detail never ceases to amaze us, and based on the demonstrated photo interpretation skills of our global audience, we suspect that you will have a lot of fun analysing this collection of images of distressed US Army Air Force aircraft in World War II.
From his secret base in North America, buried under a mountain of historical photographs, Tom Laemlein has been redefining the concept of the military history "photo study" for the past 15 years. Leveraging his massive photo library, Tom has a knack for publishing images that expose the details of the weapons and battles of the 20th Century, much to the delight of a global audience of historians. This book is the first in a series that Tom is developing for Canfora Publishing.
Fresh from the print shop!
Fallen Stars will soon be followed by re-prints of Tom's previous Grounded Eagles 1&2 as well as a brand new volume 3 on German aircraft. Setting Suns on Japanese aircraft will also be re-printed under our new series label and on top of that a volume on a variety of Allied aircraft that were lost during the early stages of World War Two.
