Arms and Armour Press. First edition 1978.  347 pages and photos.

Very Good condition hardback book and dustjacket.  It comes with the original ticket programme for the Symposium which accompanied the launch of this book on 4th November 1978 and a printed note of thanks from Douglas Bader, the Chairman of the Battle of Britain Museum Appeal.

This book is a compilation of official instructions to pilots on aerial combat techniques from the First World War through to the end of WWII.  It is an authentic and authoritative perspective on the development of aerial warfare over its first 30 years.

Signed at the book launch at the Commonwealth Institute in 1978 by some of the symposium panellists, this is a fascinating book to dip into for those top tips necessary to stay alive in a dog-fight and survive long enough to become an ace.
