The Arab-Israeli Air Wars 1947 – 82 (AIAW), which is a part of the Osprey Combat Aircraft series*, is set out to provide a detailed introduction to air-to-air combat during the contemporary history of the Middle East from the Israeli Air Force’s perspective. AIAW’s intended audience includes readers with an interest in the IAF’s history and operations, aircraft, tactics and pilots, along with the various technologies and camouflage schemes employed by the IAF. AIAW can also be of value to aviation historians and researchers, hobby enthusiasts, and curious readers alike as an IAF historical visual reference guide.
The Israeli Mirage and Nesher Aces (IMNA) publication, another member of Osprey’s Aircraft of the Aces series*, covers the service and combat history of Israel’s Mirage IIIC and Nesher fighter units during the 1960s and 1970s, with a focus on the pilots who became aces in these aircraft. IMNA is intended for a readership who have an interest in the history of the Israeli Airforce’s delta-wing fighters (excluding the Kfir) and their ace pilots, and the Middle East aerial battles of the ‘60s and ‘70s. IMNA is also of value as a pictorial reference guide for aviation historians and hobby enthusiasts due to the publication’s vast array of archive photos, gun camera stills, and colour plates.

WEBS’s informal narrative style and ease of comprehension also make this publication suitable for a wider general audience.

Due to VA’s abundance of high quality colour photos, diagrams and etchings the publication is also a suitable illustrative resource for artists, jewelers, and designers with an interest in this period.
