Description

For a generation, Phantoms have risen from land and sea to take command of the air. The McDonnell F-4 Phantom II is, simply, the most important and best-know fighter aircraft of the second half of the twentieth century. This volume takes a new approach in the Osprey Colour Series in bringing together the work of many fine photographers. 

Phantoms Forever would not have been possible without the help of Charles W Arrington, Flight Lieutenant Ian Black, Robert L Burns, Flight Lieutenant Tristram J Carter, Dr Joseph G Handelman, Colonel G F Robert Hanke, Major James Rotramel, Captain Keith Svendson and Douglas R Tachauer.  

Additional material came from photographers who are credited individually. Bob Dorr and editor Dennis Baldry assembled pictures and text in what Bob calls not a history but a 'celebration'.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Robert F Dorr

Robert F.Dorr ( September 11, 1939 – June 12, 2016 ), was an American author, who published over 70 books, a hundred of short stories and numerous articles. Bob is an established aviation historian. 


After four years in the West End of London with his wife, Young Soon and two boys, Bobbie and Jerry, 47-year-old Bob Dorr returned to Washington, DC in his `other life' as a diplomat with the US Department of State.


Bob Dorr is a member of the Tailhook Association and the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots Association, and expects to maintain his lifelong interest in the Phantom. Most recently, he headed the weekly "Back Talk" opinion column for the Military Times newspaper and the monthly "Washington Watch" feature of Aerospace America. He is also on the Masthead as the technical editor of Air Power History, the journal of the Air Force Historical Foundation, and was Washington correspondent for the discontinued World Air Power Journal.


After high school, Dorr joined the U.S. Air Force in 1957, and served in Korea. Upon leaving the Air Force in 1960, Dorr moved to San Francisco to attend the University of California, Berkeley. His writing career in Men's adventure magazines began around this time. In 1964, Dorr became a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State, where he was assigned as a US diplomat and political officer to U.S. Embassies.

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
Osprey Publishing Limited
In the 1960's, the Brooke Bond Tea Company began including a series of military aircraft cards with packages of their tea. The cards proved popular, and the artist Richard " Dick " Ward proposed the idea of publishing illustrated books about military aircraft. The idea was approved and a small subsidiary company called Osprey was formed in 1968. The company’s first book, North American P - 51D Mustang in U.S.A.A.F. - U.S.A.F. Service, was published in 1969. Soon after, Richard " Dick " Ward proposed trying the same idea with famous military units, and in 1971, the first Men - at - Arms title appeared. In the late 1970's, the firm was acquired by George Philip Ltd. In 1988, Philip was acquired by Reed International ; it was sold to the private equity firm Botts & Company. During these years, the firm grew steadily, adding new titles and new series to their catalogue. Although they have produced books of all types, the main focus remains on military history, particularly the military history of Britain. Osprey Publishing now publishes an average of 10 - 12 books a month. In 2014, Osprey and its imprints were sold by Alcuin Capital Partners. Angry Robot, Nourish and Watkins went to Etan Ilfeld while Osprey, Shire, Old House and British Wildlife went to Bloomsbury Publishing. ( source : Wikipedia )
