    1. RAF WWII Air Combat

      Included are three RAF manuals from WWII. "Bag the Hun" is fairly well known and available from other sources. 
      The RAF "Manual of Air Tactics" was more difficult to find, I ended up reaching out to and paying for a copy from the British Archives. If you are trying to fly accurate tactics in a Battle of Britain mission this is for you. 
      The last manual "Tactical Bulletin 15" is actually USAAF pilot Reade Tilley's "Hints on Hun Hunting, issued to allied pilots flying in the Mediterranean theatre, and marks the shift in tactics and formations from the Finger-Four to Line Abreast. Interesting stuff.

    2. USN WWII Air Combat

      These manuals were one part of a training series put together by Jimmy Thach. There are various videos floating around the internet which match the titles of these manuals. Excellent stuff if you want to know how USN and USMC pilots flew and fought in the Pacific.

    4. USAF 1950s and 1960s

      Attached are a collection of original manuals from the 1950s and 1960s, to help the simulator pilot accurately reproduce aerial engagements from the Korean War and beyond.
      The Boyd manuals were found on Mark Hart's website. Originally they were Air Force documents of course, but difficult to find and not in good quality. Mark painstakingly reproduced the documents to their original conditions. His contact information and how he restored each manual is included in the individual pdfs.

    6. USN WWII Fundamentals of Torpedo Attack

      I found this manual on eBay, never had seen anything like before or since.
      It's a short document but helpful if you are making historically-accurate torpedo attacks in your favorite simulator.
