Imray has commissioned this English language edition of Skagerrak Forlag's Harbour Guide to Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro, which covers the coasts of those countries and their islands. The Norwegian publisher has already established a comprehensive series of Harbour Guides (Havneguiden) for the Baltic Sea that concentrate on providing the user with the clearest possible information for entering harbours and anchorages. This joint venture extends the series to the Adriatic. Each harbour is presented on its own page with specially commissioned aerial photos annotated to show approach lines and anchoring places, supported by clear harbour plans, a fact box and sailing directions. Aerial photographs offer a quick overview of the character of the harbour, its atmosphere, facilities and fairways, danger spots and mooring points. Depths, skerries and shallows are clearly marked. Large scale plans, one per harbour, include depths, safest approaches and berthing details. Each harbour text is divided into two sections; a General overview describing the history and scenery of the area and information on what to see and do when there, and a Berthing section with information on how to approach and the hazards to watch out for, and where it is safe and sheltered to tie up. Fact boxes provide a quick overview of the harbour facilities, useful websites and contact details. The book is divided into 5 sailing areas each with a helpful overview chart on which harbours are marked.

Greek Waters Pilot is the definitive cruising guide to the coasts and islands of Greece. It covers the entire area from the Ionian Islands to the Aegean, Rhodes and Crete and includes details of over 450 harbours in a single volume. Greek Waters Pilot has been painstakingly compiled from the author's own survey work and the latest first-hand information. Although much of the new material affects the Ionian and southeastern Aegean, this new edition contains detailed updating of every part of the guide. The redrawn and amended plans and new photographs, many of which have been taken from the air, complement the revisions in the text, refreshing this work which is now in its eleventh edition. The organisation of so much detail within the confines of a single volume is an impressive achievement and has been the basis of Greek Waters Pilot's status as the indispensable guide for anyone sailing around Greece. 'The fascinating background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives this book a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides. It would be inconceivable to visit this area without the detailed knowledge provided by Rod Heikell's enviable experience of Greek cruising.?' Royal Cruising Club 'Anyone who has cruised around Greece will be grateful to Rod Heikell for compiling what has become 'the bible' for pilotage in these waters. If you are planning on cruising in this delightful region, Heikell is invaluable...' Cruising Association '... his excellent pilots are the yardstick by which all others are measured and it's with justification that they are often referred to as 'the bible'.'

Flying a B-17 Flying Fortress with the Fifteenth Air Force out of Foggia, Italy, Lt. George H. Neilson describes the harrowing experiences of his twenty-eight combat missions as well as the ups and downs of life in the US Army Air Corps from enlistment to discharge (194345). Blending selections of his fathers letters to home and memoirs he recorded a half century later with documented background history, the younger Neilson tells the saga of the son of a Boston widow as he confronts the rigors of pilot-officer training and combat service in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations during the final six months of World War II in Europe. George depicts the humorous and mundane sides of army life as well as the terror-filled moments during bomb runs over targets in Austria, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Yugoslavia, and Austria as antiaircraft flak bursts battered the aircraft. Neilsons daily chronicles juxtapose moments when life and death hung in the balance, such as when he landed his crippled Fort in the Adriatic Sea, with the unexpected moments of splendor, such as when he dined in luxury on the Isle of Capri at a castle owned by the royal family of Italy. Flying in formation through clouds so thick that the plane thirty feet off his wing was invisible, George received the Distinguished Flying Cross for his ability as a skilled instrument pilot. He recounts youthful escapades on duty-free hours and the tales of life in Foggias mud-bound tent city in the spur of Italy. It includes the stirring story of his visit to a field hospital where his brother, a captain in the infantry, was recovering from a bullet wound incurred in the fighting in the Apennine Mountain campaign. Finally, the story tells of World War IIs fiery end and how he unknowingly worked on the secret research project to develop the atomic bomb in a lab at MIT before enlistment. For the student of history and aviation and its role in the Allied victory over Hitlers nefarious Reich, this microhistory will not disappoint.

Exposing the true scale and significance of the deployment of air power in the Balkans, this book details the activities of NATO and UN aircraft as well as local pilots in the former Yugoslavia. From bombing by B-2 stealth bombers to air-to-air combat; from moving ground troops by helicopter to 'food-bombing' for refugees, air power has played a vital role in 'Europe's Vietnam', and there is little sign that the fires of conflict are being extinguished. Debate amongst air power practitioners has yielded little agreement as to the degree of damage inflicted on the Yugoslav 3rd Army in Kosovo, the Balkans continue to be a region of conflict and ethnic hatred.
