This book, published in two volumes, present an inventory of air units in North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia) from June 1940 to the summer of 1967, for each of the following:
• The period of activity
• Missions
• The various types of devices and their period of use
• Armaments and stationary

Besides schools, learning centers or training, these units are aggregated and presented according to the classification of air assets in use during the war in Algeria, as heavy hunting of light support aviation.

Remarkably comprehensive, richly illustrated with around 2,500 photographs from personal albums, this is an exceptional document of reference and memory, an essential supplement for anyone interested in this period of history of the Air Force and its commitment to the other side of the Mediterranean.


"Like its kick-off companion, volume 2 sports a wealth of images - at least 1,300 by my quick count. Camouflage & markings. Heraldry. Personal decorations. Codes. And more. It's a remarkable resource for model project inspiration and reference… Grab this sumptuous, picture-packed study - both volumes!”
