Duel

Duel is an innovative series of books from Osprey that conveys a complete picture of machine-on-machine action from design and development through to combat, with a thorough analysis of all the human, tactical and technical elements which ultimately decided who triumphed in clashes of men and their war machines. First-hand accounts of individual engagements place you in the midst of the action, whether dogfight, tank battle or submarine hunt. An array of technical drawings, photographs and full-colour digital illustrations, including "gun sight views," depict the key aspects of these machines in wartime. Ideal for modellers, wargamers and military history enthusiasts of all ages.
