After a full fifty years enjoying military history, I am still discovering things that I did not know existed:

'AIRCRAFT OF THE CHACO WAR 1928-1935' is about the air war between Bolivia and Paraguay, which few people outside South America have ever heard of.

It has also come to my attention that this bomber was the most numerous front-line bomber in service with U.S. forces at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack; 'DOUGLAS B-18 BOLO: The Ultimate Look: from Drawing Board to U-Boat Hunter.'

Also unknown to me was the 'CONSOLIDATED B-32 DOMINATOR: the Ultimate Look from Drawing Board to Scrapyard' which apparently actually reached operational status and executed combat missions.

Little mentioned in most histories is the 'VEGA VENTURA: The Operational Story of Lockheed's Lucky Star' which was used extensively by the British for anti-submarine patrol, reconnaissance and as penetration bomber, probably on night missions.

All this makes me wonder what will crop up next.
