An often requested subject, we are delighted to launch the Tempest V into the WPA series as one of the best RAF fighters of WW2.

Anyone not familiar with the Tempest might immediately ask why do the Mk V first instead of the earlier Mks, the answer to that of course is that only the Mk V saw active service during WW2, but you can read more detail in this book.

Once again we’re delighted to have Typhoon and Tempest expert Chris Thomas as author for this one. Not only has Chris covered the well known story of the Mk V, he has also managed to uncover some new information and photos which even the most committed Tempest enthusiast will find of interest.

As with all the books in this series, we’ve enhanced the photos to pull out the shadow detail and have added arrows and letters to identify points of interest.

‍This book contains approx 120 original wartime/post-war photos and 6 in-depth colour profiles.
