     If I was allowed to say it on the internet Stoney, I would say Damn Brother,

I am so sorry about all that. I know exactly what you are saying....If I said that

out loud, I apologize to whomsoever that may have offended.

     The truth is in my earlier years I believe when I thought I was in love, I was

simply in lust. :) I was what you could call a 'dim bulb', just not that bright. I had 

to find a dimmer switch booster over the years so I could turn up the wattage...

The jury is still out on that one as how much I have turned up the amperage. :huh:

     HOWEVER, my present wife Diana is an absolute jewel. And no, your fantastic

book that your Grandfather gave you does not even compare Sir.

    

      I hope that you have been able to put things back together and head into a

better direction.....?

 

May God bless you Stone, Jeff

 

PS: Yes guys, I know we have gone off topic......soooo, why don't you get us

     back on topic by posting your library, hum?

Judge asked: "just to get it clear Mr Nielsen: You claim that You and Your wife washed dishes and cutlery and just as You had wiped off a major cook knife You turned around and accidently stapped Your wife?"
- "Yes Your honour, thats exactly how it happened!"
- "Every fourtytwo times?"

My reference books are nothing to brag about... but if you're talking books from Grandad then I have:

 

Britain at War - The Royal Air Force From September 1939 to December 1940

 

Conquest of the Skies (English translaton of the German book "Eroberung des himmels" published 1938

 

Aviation of to-day (first published 1930, my edition is from 1933 and has a chapter at the end updating the book)

 

Some great suff on what was then new and cutting edge but is now something of a footnote. And their 'aviation of the future' musings are just fabulous :)

- Uh, Sarge we have a woman here who shot her husband because he walked on her freshly-mopped floor

- Well have you arrested her?

- No sir, she is still armed and the floor is still wet...

     Stop that Armand. I actually never raised a hand to my ex-wife. Now, then, in 

my mind? Well maybe at first, but it is better for me and my soul that I have

forgiven and let it go. I really wish I was stronger some times and could forget also.

 

     UH... you did not get us back on topic now did you!? Now go somewhere and

try to be ashamed of yourself, think about what you have said, wash your mouth 

out with soap and come back here and make a proper post to this thread. I don't

see one book listed in you posting...I am very disappointed in you mister. :lol:

     Uh,...............You and Armand seriously need to start a new thread," Great Quotes & Jokes".

you are behaving mister. :lol:

     Sorry to hear you've had to nomad it for a while. Doesn't sound like much fun other than for site seeing.

No need to be sorry. I've had a great life and learned heaps about other places that I never would have as a tourist.

     Well I have tried for a person of limited funds to find WW2 aircraft books that

give first hand knowledge of the abilities and situations of each fighter aircraft. My

'free' time though limited by work and family is devoted to getting closer to God and

learning as much as I can about WW2 fighter aircraft, in that order. 
     The following books in my library I have acquired in the last couple of years.  

I have tried to put as much information as I can from these books into the AIRCRAFT

PERFORMANCE section of this site. I have found them very interesting and quite

informing about not only the aircraft but also the situations in which these fighters 

had to fight. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in WW2 aircraft

or the most important battles they participated in.

     The best part about these books is they are relatively very inexpensive for all the

information they provide.

 

DOGFIGHT, The Greatest Air Duels of World War II. $25.58

     This hard cover book is actually a compilation of five of the fairly new Osprey

paperback duel series. The only down side I can think of in this compilation of great

books is the small fact that they eliminated the Chronology section which is a brief

quick combined timeline of the two aircraft involved, and you don't get the individual 

soft cover book's covers. The following individual books contained are:

     Spitfire vs. Bf.109E, The Battle of Britain: 1940.

     P-47 Thunderbolt vs. Bf.109G/K, Battle for the Bombers: Europe 1943-1945

     P-40 Warhawk vs. Ki-43 "Oscar", Tooth and Claw: Duels over China, 1944

     P-51 Mustang vs. Fw 190, Dueling for the Reich: Germany 1943-1945

     Seafire vs. A6M Zero, Last combat over the Pacific: Japan 1945.

This book is actually selling used in good shape on Amazon right now for

$3.59 + 3.99 postage (US)= $7.58.

An awesome deal. :)
