Cold War Shield Volume Three

Volume three covers the RAF's Swift, Hunter, Javelin & early Lightning squadrons.

This eagerly awaited Limited Edition is imminent, covering the RAF’s SWIFT, HUNTER, JAVELIN, and early LIGHTNING fighter squadrons at the height of the Cold War during the 1950s and early 1960s when the threat of nuclear conflict between the Western democracies and the Communist Soviet Union was ever present.

The result of 40 years of painstaking research, including access to official records, this book details the squadrons’ deployment in the UK and overseas, with individual aircraft histories, camouflage and unit markings, enhanced by personal accounts from those who flew or maintained these iconic aircraft, as well as the Author’s observations at the time. The 386 pages of this hardback study are packed with even more text and profusely illustrated with a magnificent portfolio of over 900 photographs, almost 200 of them in colour, complimented by more than 50 colour side view drawings, paintings, and unit livery which combine to reflect the essence and excitement when the RAF’s post war fighter squadrons were at their zenith. Foreword by Air Vice-Marshal George Black, CB, OBE, AFC*
