197 Ashworth, Chris. AVRO's Maritime Heavyweight: The Shackleton.
Aston Publications, (1990). Number 6 of a limited edition of 100 signed copies for The Shckleton Association. 
Quarto, leatherbound, gilt letters, 247 pp. Fine, with bookplate, in a Near-Fine, price-clipped dust jacket. From dust jacket: When the Shackleton is finally made redundant by the Boeing Sentry AEW.1 in 1991 it will have completed 40 years of frontline operational service with the Royal Air Force -- an achievement without parallel amongst four-engined ‘heavies' and undreamed of when the aircraft was first projected in 1944. In 11 fully illustrated chapters this book details the development and service history of this long-lived aircraft, covering not only the maritime reconnaissance role for which it was originally inteneded, but also its use for air-sea rescue, trooping, colonial policing and airborne early warning. Three additional chapters explore the Shackleton's operations with the South African Air Force, it suse on research work, and projects. Nine appendices provide extensive information on specifications, performance, colour schemes and markings, production contracts and, last but not least, individual histories of every Shackleton built -- invaluable for model makers and old Shackleton ‘hands' interested in discovering just what did happen to ‘their' aircraft. The book contains over 250 illustrations, has four pages of full-colour artwork and a magificent cut-away drawing. Diagrams illustrate the usage of the aircraft during SAR and maritime operations...

198 Ashworth, Chris. RAF Coastal Command, 1936-1969.
Patrick Stephens Limited, (1992). 
Octavo, blue boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 256 pp. Fine, with bookplate; in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: Although RAF Coastal Command existed for 33 years, playing a key role throughout the SEcond World War and beyond, it was little known by the general public or understood by the rest of the Royal Air Force. Formed in 1936, it as still a small reconnaissance force at the outbreak of war, operating almost exlusively on behalf of the Royal Navy. But gradually “Coastal” became an essential part of offensive maritime operations against both the German U-boats and surface shipping. The closing of the Atlantic Gap in 1941-2 and the successful Bay of Biscay operations helped force the U-botas on to the defensive and prevent them starving Britain of food and the means to fight -- while the Strike Wing concept was vital in the battle against the enemy's coastal shipping. The Command had responsibility for “weather” flights. It also undertook photo reconnaissance, and air-sea rescue throughout a parish that stretched from Iceland to the Azores. Post-war came the inevitable contraction, but the Command was still a viable force when its assets were handed over to No 18 (Maritime) Group in 1969. The impressive wartime story covers the “reign” of four commanders: Bowhill, Joubert, Slessor, and Sholto Douglas. Woven into the text are the effects of external pressures on forward planning and daily operations -- although taxed with crucial and dangerous work, Coastal Command was always the Cinderella when it came to funding. Also considered in detail are the weapons, equipment and tactics deployed and, post-war, the development of the Shackleton and NImrod...
