Shopping at Triples - part 3 - books

I picked up a few books at Triples too.  Either two or four depending on how you count them!
First up is this little gem.  While I freely admit it's not at the cutting edge of aviation research, you must bear in mind that here at Megablitz Towers it is forever 1979...  But mostly I picked it up as I have a couple from the same series and rather like 'em.

This was a most unexpected find.  An unopened 3-volume set of large format books on a conflict rather under-represented on my book shelves.

The expression 'lavishly illustrated' springs to mind.  There are lots of pleasing maps... of actual kit...
...and paintings of uniforms.  

The cost of this lot?  A tidy £20.

Hi Tim,

I am almost sure I have the Jane's volume on submarines kicking around if you want it. Let me know.

All the best,

I'd be happy to offer it shelf space!

Surely the knowledge of such things alone is enough to condemn you?
