I'm pleased to announce that a new title 'SQUADRONS!' is now available (e-book only): The Boeing Fortress Mk.I, with 30 pages, 30 photos and 2 colour profiles.
The full story of the Fortress Mk.I is here told, an experiment led by the British under the secret supervision of the Americans. Many things were learned by the British who eventually discarded the four-engined American bomber in the day bombing role. However the Americans aware of the shortcomings of the Fortress decided to ignore these lessons and went into war a couple of months later with no change in their strategy, a bloody mistake.


It is a revised edition of the Allied Wings 7 (sold out), with new photographs and new material.

Thanks for all the ones who contributed for this issue, and special thanks to Robert Stitt and Matt Poole for their valuable contribution in this case.
