    Dr Alfred Price

    Dr Alfred Price, the author of more than 40 books and around 200 magazine articles, died on 29 January. He served as an Air Electronics Officer in the RAF, flew mainly on Vulcan and EW Canberra aircraft, and became an instructor at the Vulcan Conversion Unit. His first book was 'Instruments of Darkness', which described the history of EW during the Second World War. 'War In The Fourth Dimension' brought the EW story up to date, while 'Aircraft Versus Submarine' was another landmark achievement.

    Many of his other books were on Second World War topics, and included 'The Last Year of the Luftwaffe', 'Blitz on Britain', 'Targeting the Reich', 'Pictorial History of the Luftwaffe', and 'The Bomber In World War II', but his 'One Day in a Long War' covered Operation Linebacker during the Vietnam War.

      Sad news indeed. RiP

      For the French reader, a version of "One day of a long war", highly illustrated was published in a series of episodes by Le Fana de l'Aviation

      Aircraft Versus Submarines was one of its great title also.

      here is his bibliography on Amazon
