Pressestimmen 'Lots of fascinating facts color commentary. What happened to four ex-Iraqi Hawker Sea Furies in Moroccan service? What Egyptian notable was 'taken prisoner' during brief, bitter fighting between Morocco and Algeria? And what Caribbean nation rushed weapons to Algeria's aid? You'll find answers here. Aircraft naturally take center stage. 'Messerschmitts' and MiGs. Texans and T-28s. Flamants and Freedom Fighters. And much, much more.'--Cybermodeler Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Tom Cooper is an Austrian aerial warfare analyst and historian. Following a career in worldwide transportation business - during which he established a network of contacts in the Middle East and Africa - he moved into narrow-focus analysis and writing on small, little-known air forces and conflicts, about which he has collected extensive archives. This has resulted in specialisation in such Middle Eastern air forces as of those of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, plus various African and Asian air forces. Except for authoring and co-authoring more than 30 books - including about a dozen of titles for Helion's @War series - and over 1000 articles, Cooper is a regular correspondent for multiple defence-related publications.Military historian and aviation-journalist Albert Grandolini was born in Vietnam and gained an MA in history from Paris 1 Sorbonne University. His primary research focus is on contemporary conflicts in general and particularly on the military history in Asia and Africa. Having spent his childhood in South Vietnam, the Vietnam War has always been one of his main fields of research. He authored the book Fall of the Flying Dragon: South Vietnamese Air Force (1973-1975) two volumes on Vietnam's Easter Offensive of 1972 for Helion's [email protected] Series, and three volumes on Libyan Air Wars for [email protected] Series, and has written numerous articles for various British, French, and German magazines.
