Casemate publishing continues its ongoing series of post-World War Two conflicts in Europe with an interesting volume that concentrates on Britain’s contributions to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), in the last phase of the Cold War. This is an unusual volume in that the text is derived from the author’s Ph.D dissertation on the same topic. The volume is richly illustrated with color photographs, which, I imagine, would be well received by the modeling community. As with other publications in this series, it includes maps and 22 color profiles of vehicles, aircraft, and uniforms from this era.

I was not familiar with this series of books, so I was not sure what to expect. But being a fan of British aircraft, I couldn’t pass up the chance to review it. This book by author Chris Goss is just under 100 pages and measures 9.5” tall and 6.75” wide. There is a short forward by Air Marshal Philip Sturley and a one page introduction by the author. All of the photographs are from the collection of the late David Howley. The book contains one chapter covering the Jaguar and another covering the Harrier. There is also a short appendix listing the different variants of the two aircraft and units that operated them. The pictures are a mixture of black and white photos and color photos and are presented two on a page for the majority of the book.
