The uncertain fates of Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson and Glenn Miller have fascinated readers and aviation historians ever since they disappeared. Even today, more than half a century after their final flights, what happened to them is still the subject of speculation, conspiracy theory and controversy. This has prompted Roy Conyers Nesbit to reinvestigate their stories and to write this perceptive, level-headed and gripping study. Using testimony from new witnesses and hitherto undisclosed public records, he seeks to explain why they were reported Ômissing: believed killedÕ. He describes why American aviatrix Amelia Earhart vanished in the Pacific on her round-the-world flight in 1937, what caused the death of BritainÕs aviation heroine Amy Johnson over the Thames estuary in 1941, and what really killed band-leader Glenn Miller on his doomed flight to Paris in 1944. And he applies the same expert forensic eye to other tragic aerial mysteries of the period including the flying-boat crash that claimed the life of the Duke of Kent in Scotland in 1942. This classic study, issued here for the first time in paperback, will be fascinating reading for students of aviation history and for anyone who is intrigued by tales of flights into the unknown.

Then there is the swashbuckling yank, Freddy and his muckin¿ fotor cycle; Lofty with his bottles of plonk, and Harry, a mongrel dog and friend of all who knew him.Based on actual events, these moving tales bring to life the humour, fear, tragedy and futile wastage of war, and the remarkable young men, some little more than schoolboys, who individually contributed in no small way to the annals of Australian history

A definitive new edition of a classic memoir, published in association with the RAF Museum, complete with more than 100 photographs and notes from leading historians. Guy Gibson was the leader of the famous Dambusters raid and Enemy Coast Ahead is a vivid, honest account, widely regarded as one of the best books on World War II. It is also an insider's account that sets down in clear, honest detail the challenges that the RAF faced in the war against Germany’s Luftwaffe. Tragically, Gibson died in September 1944, when his Mosquito crashed near Steenbergen in the Netherlands. He was aged just 26. This new book has been published to mark the 75th anniversary of his death and includes an introduction by James Holland, a historian and broadcaster; notes by Dr Robert Owen, the Official Historian of the No. 617 Squadron Association and many images that have never been published before.

World War One changed the course of history. And not only on a global scale as borders shifted and battles raged, but on a local level, when sons failed to return home, and whole villages were emptied of their young men. Oxford was no exception. Many of its young scholars left the dreaming spires to become junior officers, with 170 joining the local Oxford and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry Regiment before the end of 1914. University buildings were turned from places of study into hospitals and cadet training centres. No college was left untouched. An Oxford College at War is the story of one college's experience of the war: Corpus Christi, one of the smallest and oldest Oxford colleges, lost a number of its students. Based on the moving accounts contained in the College Roll of Honour of those who fell in the Great War, this book looks not only at students' deaths, but also at the role of Corpus - as an exemplar Oxford College - in the War, and the wider role played by the University. From those fighting on the front and on the home front, to the aftermath of the War for survivors and those left behind, An Oxford College at War provides an unparalleled insight into the extraordinary bravery and everyday courage of citizens and students alike.
