Combat over the Horn of Africa : Vol 1 : June – December 1940

The East Africa Campaign is one of those events of the Second World War, now partially forgotten.

The aim of this series is to provide a Chronicle of air operations over the Horn of Africa between 1940 and 1941, as detailed as possible and up to date with new research.

Three volumes will be needed to deal with these events.

This first volume covers the period between June and December 1940 during which Italy launched a series of offensives to ensure the defence of its Empire, while the British and South Africans sought to strengthen for a future offensive.

The actions of the various belligerents (RAF, SAAF, Regia Aeronautica) are dealt with, often on a daily basis, with a maximum of precision based on the available archives and various publications, both old and recent. 

The book contains 227 pages, 200 photos, five maps, as well as a detailed list of the losses and claims of the various belligerents.
