Aces High
The Heroic Saga of the Two Top-Scoring American Aces of World War II
Paperback      ISBN: 0425232301
They were two of the greatest heroes of World War II. But only one could be top gun... Capturing the hearts of a beleaguered nation, the fighter pilots of World War II engaged in a kind of battle that became the stuff of legend-and those who survived showdowns earned the right to be called aces. But two men in particular rose to become something more. Richard "Dick" Bong was a bashful, pink-faced farm boy from the Midwest. Thomas "Tommy" McGuire was a wise-cracking, fast-talking kid from New Jersey. What they shared was an unparalleled gallantry under fire which earned them each the Medal of Honor. What they had between them was a closely watched rivalry to see who would emerge as the top-scoring American ace of the war. What they left behind is a legacy and a record of aerial victories that has yet to be surpassed anywhere in the world.

Air Assault from the Sea
Paperback      ISBN: 1557500177
This lavishly illustrated photo tribute captures the international scope of modern day American and European amphibious helicopter operations. The over-sized, full-color format and lively narrative draw the reader onto the ships and into the air of the versatile amphibious fleet. The HMS Ocean and the U.S. Navy's Wasp-class LHD USS Bataan, as well as the Dutch Rotterdam are just a few of the new helicopter assault ships covered together with a fleet of new and modernized helicopters. In addition, the author includes chapters on the joint US-UK exercise Bright Star 99, the MV-22 Osprey, RAF Chinooks, and U.S. Marines. Whether engaged in full conventional assault operations or peacekeeping/humanitarian support, helicopter amphibious forces provide an increasingly important role in today's uncertain strategic environment, as this book clearly indicates. A chronicle of their contributions, including photographs of troops and ships on exercises from nearly every NATO force, the book will be a welcome addition to the modern warfare bookshelf.
