Foreward By Kumaratunga, H. E. Chandrinka Bandaranaike
216pp.Monara Rising, the history of civil aviation in Sri Lanka, published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of SriLankan, is the first book tracing the history of aviation in Sri Lanka. Utilising archival materials and anecdotal evidence from those who have been part of this extraordinary era, the title traces a story of triumph over adversity. From the early struggles of Air Ceylon to 2005, when the SriLankan group was the most profitable corporation on the island, it is a story filled with colour. The birth of aviation in what was then known as Ceylon came in 1912, but it was the Second World War that first made Ceylon a focal point for aviation. The island was a centre for Royal Air Force operations. Its basic airstrip was to play a key role in one of the pivotal battles of the war on 5 April 1942. Churchill stated: "The most dangerous moment of the War, and the one which caused me the greatest alarm, was when the Japanese Fleet was heading for Ceylon and the naval base there. The capture of Ceylon, the consequent control of the Indian Ocean, and the possibility at the same time of a German conquest of Egypt would have closed the ring and the future would have been black."

Edited By Jarrett, Philip
This is a study of aircraft, from biplanes to monoplanes between the years 1919-39. The book is part of a 12-volume series, which covers the production and operation of aircraft worldwide. Each volume is devoted to essays on aircraft types, their development and option, systems and equipment. As well as outlining developments, each article seeks to explain why progress was in a particular direction, emphasizing the political, strategic or economic factors that dictated that development. Moving from the general to the specific, graphs and tabular data relating to typical or significant aircraft or allied subjects are provided in each section. The series concentrates on the development of aircraft from the viewpoint of their technical development, the effect of technical development on the use of aircraft, and the effect of their usage on technical development. Contributors to this title include: Ken Munson, John Stround, Ted Hooton, Peter Hearn, Norman Friedman, Darrol Stinton, Patrick Hassell, Mike Hirst, Morman Barfield, Harry Woodman, Ralph Barker, Sebastian Ritchie and Christopher Shores. 264pp. N.B. Top edge of D/J slightly creased with small area of rubbing to head of D/J spine.

You know it's going to be hot when your brigade is referred to as a Fireball unit. From May 1967 through May 1968, Ted Arthurs was in the thick of it, humping an eighty-pound rucksack through triple canopy jungle, chasing down the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam. As sergeant major for a battalion of 800 men, it was his job to see them through this jungle hell and get them back home again. 352pp.
