Previous books:

Air Wars and Aircraft: A Detailed Record of Air Combat, 1945 to the Present

Arms and Armour Press, London, 1989.

What the reviewers said:

"In the 10 years I have been writing this column I have seen hundreds of books. If I had to choose the one book that represented a publishing milestone, a stupendous effort, and a major source all in one volume, it would be this one." Peter Mersky, Naval Aviation News

"This is an immensely valuable single-source reference providing facts and figures on subjects ranging from the Greek Civil War to the Gulf War, and from Northern Ireland to Mozambique.****" Aircraft Illustrated

"At first glance the title....might appear to be another skimming the surface coffee table work - not so, go seek it out and discover the depth of this monumental reference tool." Flypast

"Vic Flintham has produced something that covers just about every small war that has taken place since World War 2, joined them all together and provided his readers with the most amazing set of facts and figures that can hardly be beaten for its comprehensiveness and skill in research." Aviation News

"Among the book's manifold virtues for the enthusiast - and I suspect that all the information in it must have been compiled by someone with the dogged devotion to the research task that only a true enthusiast could bring and another could appreciate - is that as a part of the coverage of each conflict there is a table of aircraft units involved, as well as notes on individual airframes and their colours." Scale Aircraft Modelling



    Aircraft in British Military Service: British Service Aircraft Since 1946

    Airlife, Shrewsbury, 1999.

    What the reviewers said:

    "This is a practical book which offers a minimum of pointless comment and a maximum of detail. Highly recommended as a quick reference for all military enthusiasts." Air-Britain Digest

    "Though not a prolific author, Vic Flintham is an experienced writer and researcher whose long association with military aviation is clearly demonstrated in a fact-filled work of reference. .....provides the reader with unprecedented depth and breadth of information." Air Forces Monthly

    "A well illustrated encyclopaedic tome, this product justly deserves inclusion in the serious enthusiast's book collection!" Flypast

    "The author.... set out to provide an extensive aide-memoire to a very large subject. This he has done extremely well. If you want a reference between two covers to every post-war British military aircraft from the Eurofighter to the Procter Kittiwake then this is the book for you." Aerospace International

    "This is one of those books that you pick up to check on a type and get side-tracked and find some equally fascinating information, despite being advised that it is a fine work of reference, rather than a reading book." Air Pictorial




    Combat Codes: a Full Explanation and Listing of British, Commonwealth and Allied Air Force Unit Codes since 1938

    With Andrew Thomas Airlife, Shrewsbury, 2003

    What the reviewers said:

    “….the two authors….have completed a remarkable research project which is probably about as accurate as you can get. …the ace factor is the almost unmatched collection of pictures.”  Aviation News

    “At last we have a comprehensive and near-definitive work on the squadron and unit markings carried by the RAF and later Allied aircraft during the Second World War. Destined to become the standard work on the subject, it is a must for the bookshelves of both serious researchers and aircraft modellers.” Air-Britain

    “This is one of those essential reference tools which form the skeleton on which historical research is based.” Aeroplane
