The Camouflage and Markings of the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana 1943-1945 For the first time in the English language and following years of research, the authors analyze the camouflage and markings of the Aeronautica Nationale Repubblicana (ANR), the fascist air force formed following the wake of Italy's capitulation to the Allies in 1943. This volume will undoubtedly become the defining reference on the subject. Fighting alongside the Luftwaffe to the bitter end in Northern Italy, the ANR was equipped with the German Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter as well as a range of Italian fighters, bombers, torpedo and transport aircraft — all of which are examined by the authors with the aid of hundreds of previously unpublished photographs showing the camouflage and systems markings by unit and individual units. This heavily illustrated and highly detailed work of reference covers an often-overlooked aspect of Italian air power in the later stages of World War II and is essential reading for aviation historians and aviation modelers.

US Patrol Torpedo Boats: World War II (Osprey New Vanguard 148) Osprey Publishing | 2008 | ISBN-10: 184603227X | ISBN-13: 978 1846032271 | English | 50 Pages | PDF (e-book) | 14,9 MB Motor torpedo boat development began in the early 1900s and the vessels were first put into active service during World War I. However, it was not until the late 1930s that the US Navy commenced the development of their Patrol Torpedo or PT boat program. The PT boat, or the "mosquito boat" as they were sometimes known, was originally envisioned for attacking larger warships with torpedoes using its "stealth" ability, high-speed, and small size to launch and survive these attacks. However, they were actually employed more frequently in a wide variety of other missions, many which were unforeseen by developers and planners, including rescuing General MacArthur and his entourage from the Philippines.
