À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Roger A. Freeman

Roger A. Freeman ( May 11th, 1928 - October 7th, 2005 ) grew up on the family farm in Dedham ( Essex, England ).


In 1943, Martin B - 26 Marauder bombers of the U.S. Eighth Air Force’s 386th Bomb Group arrived at Boxted airfield - less than two miles away - sparking Freeman’s lifelong fascination with the wartime U.S.A.A.F. operating from Britain.


After the war, Roger A. Freeman began to impart his knowledge about the wartime U.S.A.A.F. with articles for aviation magazines and started to collate material for his planned book. The book, entitled The Mighty Eighth, was an instant success and has been translated into several languages.


His overall output of some 60 books also included works about the wartime Royal Air Force, individual aircraft studies, airfield histories and profiles of U.S.A.A.F. units.

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
Macdonald and Company ( Publishers ) Ltd.
The MacDonald group of companies was a major publishing group that handled a variety of imprints and subjects. In the early 1960's, MacDonald & Co. ( Publishers ) Limited was located at 2 Portman Street ( London, England ). In 1968, they co - located with Sampson Low at St. Giles House, 49 - 50 Poland Street. When Sampson Low ceased publishing in 1969, MacDonald & Co. took over. MacDonald and Sampson Low are in effect the same publisher, just under a different name. Indeed, some of the MacDonald reprinted editions bear the text " A Sampson Low Book " on the title page. The MacDonald books also adopted the same numbering system as the Sampson Low editions. MacDonald became MacDonald & Jane's Publishers Ltd in 1974, and several years later the group was bought by Time Warner Books U.K. Ltd, part of the Time Warner empire, which also acquired Minstrel Books, the company that had published the American Hardy Boys paperbacks from 1987.
