THE DECISIVE DUEL: SPITFIRE Vs. 109 published by Little, Brown, now in bookstores
My latest book, THE DECISIVE DUEL: SPITFIRE VS. 109, published by Little, Brown, is now available in hardcover and paperback editions at bookstores throughout the UK, as well as from on-line sources including Amazon.Com.
A "dual biography" of the British Supermarine Spitfire and the German Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter aircraft of the Second World War, the book traces their story from their origins with their brilliant designers, R.J. Mitchell and Willy Messerschmitt, through the race to design and deploy them before they met in combat over Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain. Even after the decisive battles of 1940s, advanced versions of both fighters clashed repeatedly throughout the war, until their final battles over the Middle East in 1948-49.

Photographs available on PINTEREST
I am making available some 150 historical photographs on three boards at PINTEREST. I collected many more photos for THE DECISIVE DUEL than I was able to publish. These are mainly black and white photographs from the US National Archives on Second World War military aviation.
One reason I selected PINTERST for these photographs was that they could be posted in a large size suitable for downloading or use in their own research and the Comments function that would allow readers with more information to expand the captions.
