From the Preface: This book was required. As a former professor of military history at the American Military University (AMU) and a retired USAF Colonel, I wanted to teach a course on the effects of fighter aviation in war. In addition, I wanted to create a course that was a "hands-on" approach to fighter aviation history. Having flown USAF fighters for more than 20 years, I felt I had a good working knowledge of fighter aviation, but when I researched the subject I found I would have to ask my students to read scores of books to provide the background they would need. There was no "single-source" book that covered everything I wanted to cover. I determined to write that book. I wanted to write a straightforward book in plain language that would not bore fighter pilots and at the same time that would be simple enough to be attractive to laymen as well as air power historians. That is what I have done, I have covered some detailed thoughts about fighter flying in what Southern Americans might call "biscuits and gravy" language. The overriding premise of the text, is that the fighter has been the key element in the air power equation and continues in that role today although this role may be changing with the advent of good, reliable, beyond visual range air-to-air missies. This view has not been universally held over the years; however, it is a view that has been held by fighter pilots since the advent of the fighter. More and more historians are beginning to support this view. Table of Contents: World War I; Fighter Development Between Wars; The Air Wars Between World Wars; Fighter Development In World War II; The Korean War; The Fighter In The Vietnam War; The Arab-Israeli Wars; The India-Pakistani Conflicts; The Air War In The Falklands; Soviet Experience In Afghanistan; The Persian Gulf War; The Future; Summary And Conclusions.\; Appendices Definitions.

Based on the memoirs and biographies of dozens of women who risked their lives working underground to subvert the most terrifying war machine in modern history, From the Wings is a novel of courage, sacrifice, and perseverance in the face of death. When Hitler's troops storm France, an American woman is forced to face the fact that the future she'd envisioned no longer exists. Hoping to distance herself from her former life as Broadway actress, Eve Sands, she joins the International Red Cross and sails to England. Aboard ship, Eve overhears a frightening exchange between two men plotting to sabotage British tank deployments in North Africa...an experience that ultimately catapults her into the shadowy depths of war-torn Europe where the art of the ruse is the only defense against sudden death. When not working a regular job in a London hospital, Eve adopts clever disguises and personalities to courier diamonds to various networks of the Resistance. In this role, she's joined by a remarkable cast: a German Jew with a gift for impersonation; a Special Operations assistant to Winston Churchill; a Russian pilot known as "The White Rose of Stalingrad;" the indomitable Sisters of Saint Lorraine, who run their Paris convent as a safe house right under the noses of the Nazis; and, a British factory owner whose total devotion to the cause makes everything possible. From the Wings is the extraordinary story of one woman's fight to reinvent her life, even as she fights to save the lives of people she will never know.

Tidi is a larking little angel visiting the celestial school for guardian angels in order to become a guardian angel for children on Earth. He loves children more than anything! Although he‘s an eager pupil, he‘s also full of pranks and ideas. Saint Peter, the heavenly gatekeeper, can tell a story or two about that! Still, he can never hold a grudge against his „scallywag“, especially since Tidi always paints pretty pictures to make up for his mischief. Tidi can‘t wait to protect a child on Earth. But when Tidi becomes the cause for a terrible mishap, the heavenly authorities harbour serious doubts. Is it appropriate to send Tidi down to Earth already? Will he be able to cope with looking after a child? These concerns grow when Tidi makes it his mission to make The Good Lord laugh. He even dares to defy Master Rigoroso from the highest heavenly authorities when being reprimanded. That has serious consequences! In the end, everything turns out completely different – even for Tidi ... „Stubborn With a Pair of Wings“ is a humorous story, invigorating yet profound, not only for children but also for adults. This book will inspire children, parents and grandparents alike. And those who weren‘t keen on angels before will surely be captivated by the little heavenly scallywag‘s charm.
