Adriatic Pilot is the standard guide to Croatia and the neighbouring countries of Slovenia, Montenegro and Albania which is now celebrating 20 years of publication. It also provides coverage of the eastern coast of Italy and is the only guide to the Venice Lagoon and harbours adjacent to Istria. At present, this is the only book that covers the entire Adriatic region in a single volume. Trevor and Dinah Thompson's thoroughly-researched work provides all the essential navigational information for yachtsmen visiting the area. This 6th edition has been fully revised to include up-to-date technical information and details of new marinas and their facilities. The user-friendly charts included in the introduction to each section are now cross-referenced to the larger scale plans in the text and page referencing is more comprehensive. Each coastal section is now colour-coded and identifiable by colour tabs that improve navigation around the book. This edition of Adriatic Pilot is complemented by Imray's series of charts for the Dalmatian Coast that are also available now.

Imray has commissioned this English language edition of Skagerrak Forlag's Harbour Guide to Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro, which covers the coasts of those countries and their islands. The Norwegian publisher has already established a comprehensive series of Harbour Guides (Havneguiden) for the Baltic Sea that concentrate on providing the user with the clearest possible information for entering harbours and anchorages. This joint venture extends the series to the Adriatic. Each harbour is presented on its own page with specially commissioned aerial photos annotated to show approach lines and anchoring places, supported by clear harbour plans, a fact box and sailing directions. Aerial photographs offer a quick overview of the character of the harbour, its atmosphere, facilities and fairways, danger spots and mooring points. Depths, skerries and shallows are clearly marked. Large scale plans, one per harbour, include depths, safest approaches and berthing details. Each harbour text is divided into two sections; a General overview describing the history and scenery of the area and information on what to see and do when there, and a Berthing section with information on how to approach and the hazards to watch out for, and where it is safe and sheltered to tie up. Fact boxes provide a quick overview of the harbour facilities, useful websites and contact details. The book is divided into 5 sailing areas each with a helpful overview chart on which harbours are marked.

Greek Waters Pilot is the definitive cruising guide to the coasts and islands of Greece. It covers the entire area from the Ionian Islands to the Aegean, Rhodes and Crete and includes details of over 450 harbours in a single volume. Greek Waters Pilot has been painstakingly compiled from the author's own survey work and the latest first-hand information. Although much of the new material affects the Ionian and southeastern Aegean, this new edition contains detailed updating of every part of the guide. The redrawn and amended plans and new photographs, many of which have been taken from the air, complement the revisions in the text, refreshing this work which is now in its eleventh edition. The organisation of so much detail within the confines of a single volume is an impressive achievement and has been the basis of Greek Waters Pilot's status as the indispensable guide for anyone sailing around Greece. 'The fascinating background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives this book a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides. It would be inconceivable to visit this area without the detailed knowledge provided by Rod Heikell's enviable experience of Greek cruising.?' Royal Cruising Club 'Anyone who has cruised around Greece will be grateful to Rod Heikell for compiling what has become 'the bible' for pilotage in these waters. If you are planning on cruising in this delightful region, Heikell is invaluable...' Cruising Association '... his excellent pilots are the yardstick by which all others are measured and it's with justification that they are often referred to as 'the bible'.'

The Green Belt of Europe

From Vision to Reality

The Iron Curtain, running from the Barents Sea to the Black Sea, divided Europe for almost 40 years and no activity was allowed in this "forbidden" zone. When it fell in 1989, it left a strip of land that runs the entire length of Europe and that has remained comparatively undisturbed – a green belt. The Green Belt initiative aims to integrate this entire strip of land with its key habitats and ecological areas as part of an international network of valuable ecosystems. This book provides background information on the initiative, reviews current activities in a number of case studies and looks at how the initiative can fit into current and future global efforts to protect European biodiversity.

Like its companions, West Aegean and East Aegean, Ionian contains detailed information on many of the smaller harbours and anchorages which cannot be covered as comprehensively in Rod Heikell's major guide, Greek Waters Pilot. These handy cruising companions are ideal for charterers and flotilla sailors who are in the area for a short time but to make the best of it need all the essential background information on places to visit, history, food and travelling in Greece at their fingertips. Cruisers on their own yachts will also find much of interest and additional pilotage when cruising in the area.Ionian covers the coasts and islands south from Corfu, southwards to Finakounda and eastwards to Mesolongion. Ionian is essential on-board reference.This new 9th edition has been revised thoroughly throughout. The authors have updated the text and plans, and added lively new photographs. 'Heikell¿s style is easy to digest and gives pleasure in the details of the history, geography and social circumstances of the places described as well as the essential sailing information.' The Little Ship'This book, as well as being a practical manual on Ionian cruising, seems to have absorbed much of the author's personal feelings regarding the charm which draws him back to it, and any reader who has had a whiff of the magic spell of the Greek islands will sense this, and inevitably renew the resolve to return and experience it once again in greater measure.' Nautical Magazine'Rod Heikell nowadays is to the Mediterranean as gin is to tonic. It is difficult to imagine sailing there without one of his guides. Clear pilot notes, chartlets and plentiful illustrations, with entertaining commentaries on each place. Up-to-date observations on local and national regulations. The new edition does not disappoint. If one must choose, I would have no hesitation in recommending Heikell.' Cruising Association'Rod has a knack for dropping in snippets of interest and colour to give the reader a feel for the atmosphere of each port or bay.' Yachting Monthly'Like all Rod Heikell's pilots, it is also a travel guide in its own right.' Ionian Magazine'The sailing directions are particularly useful when entering the smaller anchorages and harbours, for which little information is to be found on charts, and include excellent harbour plans and top quality aerial photographs.'

Fueling the Fires of Resistance — Army Air Forces Special Operations in the Balkans during World War II [Illustrated Edition]


Author: William M. Leary
Publisher: Pickle Partners Publishing
ISBN: 1786252406
Category: History
Page: 36
View: 2043
Includes 14 illustrations Of all the Army Air Forces’ many operations in the Second World War, none was more demanding or important than those supporting the activity of resistance groups fighting the Axis powers. The special operations supporting the Yugoslavian partisans fighting the forces of Nazism in the Balkans required particular dedication and expertise. Balkan flying conditions demanded the best of flying skills, and the tenacious German defenses in that troubled region complicated this challenge even further. In this study, Professor William Leary examines what might fairly be considered one of the most important early experiences in the history of Air Force special operations. It is ironic that, fifty years after these activities, the Air Force today is heavily involved in Balkan operations, including night air drops of supplies. But this time, the supplies are for humanitarian relief, not war. The airlifters committed to relieving misery in that part of the world follow in the wake of their predecessors who, fifty years ago, flew the night skies with courage and skill to help bring an end to Nazi tyranny.
