  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
