There’s the usual selection of specially commissioned maps, profiles and illustrations along with some genuinely rare photos, including one of VK coded 238 Squadron Spitfires!

We Are Staying Up


Although we have only ever published aviation books, the opportunity to launch a book about the incredible story of Leicester City’s 5000-1 winning of the Premier League was just too good to miss. Written by a friend of ours and designed to the usual high standards of our aviation titles, this book describes what it was like to watch Leicester City transform from relegation certainties to Champions within 12 months. Divided into short game-by-game chapters, the author describes his travels from the pre-season friendlies in front of a few thousand people to the glorious final game at Stamford Bridge. Illustrated throughout with the fans’ own snapshots, this is a unique eye-witness account of the story that made world headlines. To read some sample pages, please click on the cover. This is ready for pre-order with a publication date of 1st October.
