My latest book, due to be published by The Crowood Press in a couple of months (fingers crossed!):
https://www.crowood.com/products/autocannon-by-anthony-g-williams

Autocannon_HB02A.jpg

"Autocannon is a comprehensive history of the development of automatic cannon and their ammunition from the end of the nineteenth century up to the present day. A brief history of their development is followed by sections examining the basic principles of gun and ammunition design, including various unconventional systems. Next comes a survey of cartridges in calibre order, from 20mm to 57mm, including not only ammunition that has seen service, but also a wide range of experimental types. Finally there is a survey of the cannon, grouped by nationality, which again includes many experimental models. The book includes data on about 200 different cartridges and 400 cannon, and has nearly 500 illustrations. It is the culmination of decades of research, and is unmatched in its coverage of this subject."

I heard from one of the people involved with the book Kauz Night Fighters. It is about 10 weeks away from release.

Morton books for the Westland one so might end up longer. Orionblamblam’s B-52 book ended up longer than originally advertised.

Osprey for Chobham one. Really enjoyed William Suttie‘s Tank Factory so will be getting this one!

There was a link on this board a while back to an 80 or so page journal article by those two called 'Westland and the Attack Helicopter: From Lynx to Apache'.


Still valid

"This book was written to redress this imbalance and tell the true story behind the development and operational deployment of the world’s first high-speed strategic reconnaissance aircraft, which began 6,000 miles further east and four years prior to the momentous events in Europe, under the guidance of the Imperial Japanese Army and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Co Ltd. Faced with similar preconceptions, technical arguments, and a very rigid operational doctrine, the Mitsubishi Babs was developed during a brief golden aeronautical period (between the mid 1930s and early 1940s), when the Japanese aircraft industry flourished under constant military aircraft competitions and production orders. Free from prying eyes and shrouded within a self-imposed veil of secrecy, the Japanese developed numerous designs that were equal to and in some cases ahead of contemporary Western manufacturers.

This book is the most comprehensive on the “Babs” yet published in English, with numerous photographs of the aircraft in service, several of which have never been published before, walkaround photographs of the preserved aircraft, illustrations from contemporary manuals, and color artwork".
