PETER C SMITH

These include definitive histories of  such famous battles as Operation  Pedestal the convoy that saved  Malta in August 1942 and the Battle  of Midway in the Pacific Ocean the  same year as  well as individual ship  histories, historical surveys like the  Royal Navy Courts Martial down  the  centuries and Preserved Historic  ships; and current subjects like  Ferries and Cruise Ships.

There are detailed individual  aircraft histories,  unsurpassed in  their depth of research and  information including the Junkers  Ju87 Stuka;  the Douglas SBD  Dauntless, the Petlyakov Pe-2  Peshka; the Blackburn Skua and the  Vultee A-35  Vengeance;  biographical studies of proponents  of the art, like Strike from the Sky  and Into the  Assault and general  overall histories from  unique  sources untapped by other  historians,  like Dive-Bomber! and The History of Dive-Bombing.

Essentially then, the aim of this site is to:-

 1: Give salient details on myself and my published and prepared books in all their different editions to date.

 2: Make my work known to a much larger readership and so enable the facts I have unearthed from original and hitherto  scorned sources and eyewitness accounts and so bring fresh perspectives and insights to their subjects.

A gentleman wrote to me from Switzerland telling me how much he enjoyed my approach, which he described as,  “...iconoclastic and heterodox criticism which seems full of common sense.”  That is my aim and I shall certainly  continue to question the more banal and speculative outpourings on these various subjects as long as I am able.

 

 

Aside from the normal wish of any Author to ensure that the work they produce reaches the maximum possible  audience, this site has been established to showcase more than 50 years of original research. In addition to the  UK, my books have been published in Australia, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Malta,  Russia, Sweden and the United States and with French and Spanish editions also due shortly.
