The complete set of RAF INtelligence Reports from January 1939 to December 1945.
The reports cover air matters of course, but include many other subjects as well. The German and Japanese Air Forces get a lot of coverage, but so to do the USAAF, the Italian Air Force and others. Although not all the "intelligence" is accurate, the majority of the reports are factual, and include details of many land operations and actions at sea, together with raid details made by the RAF and other air forces. There are many articles on other aspects of the war, including enemy morale, supply, air support and many other matters.
27 volumes in all, with 14,699 pages and many hundreds of illustrations, maps and photographs.
The complete set gives a picture of World War II which is far-reaching and of tremendous value to all who are interested in the Second World War.

This single volume in the Air Monograph series gives a extra dimension to the Campaign in France and the Low Countries in 1939 and 1940. Part I of the narrative covers the Anglo-French discussions, and the various air plans proposed. Part II covers the period 3 September 1939 to 9 May 1940, and the third part describes operations from 10 May 1940 to the Dunkirk evacuation. Part IV tells the story of the Battle of France and Part V is a commentary on the period 10 May to 18 June. Complete with all appendices and maps. This is an exceptional find for us, in that it adds so much to the strategic knowledge of the campaign as well as much very valuable information on operations by both sides. Not to be missed.
The Dieppe Raid could be described as a disaster; this is a complete reprint of the original mammoth report issued by Combined Operations Headquarters in 1942. Careful reading shows what was known about the town and its defences, the plan and the aftermath. The volume is complete with all its plans, diagrams, maps and photographs in exactly the same place as in the original, and nothing has been omitted. Please note that some of the maps are oversized. A very valuable analysis of this combined opeartion.
A very good history of the German Air Force during the First World War. It covers the aircraft, balloons and zeppelins and operations carried out. Thought worth translating when it first came out, this has been proved to be a correct decision. Many photographs. One of a few books in English on the subjet.
A good intelligence assessment of the Italian Air Force at 15 March 1941. The report covers organisation, personnel, training, efficiency and morale and all the other necessary matters. With 6 maps showing dispositions and airfields in 1941 plus a number of photographs of aircraft in service. A real collector's item as well as a good research source.
