From the war-torn skies over Europe to the empty expanses of the Pacific, pilots were the vanguard of the American military machine during the dark days of World War II. Discover their experiences as numerous eyewitness accounts explore the terror, adrenalin and courage which defined aerial combat. Focusing on four elite fighter units across both the European and Pacific theaters of operations, readers gain a unique insight into the battles against Germany and Japan. The book opens with the experience of 354th Fighter Group, the first fighter pilots to receive the legendary Mustang fighter, enabling them to finally take up the fight against the German Reich. Continuing the focus on the European Theater of Operations is the story of the 332nd Fighter Group - the Tuskegee Airmen - the only all-black unit of the airforce, revealing how they rose above discrimination to be feared by their enemies and revered by their colleagues. The action then switches to the Pacific, where the crack 475th Fighter Group included amongst its ranks the highest scoring American pilots, the legendary Dick Bong and Tom McGuire. The book concludes with the story of the pilots based on Iwo Jima who risked their lives to fly hundreds of miles across the Pacific, with no hope of rescue, in order to attack the heavily defended Japanese mainland. Those who survived earned themselves membership of a unique society - the 'Tokyo Club'. In this moving and enthralling account, we pay tribute to these ordinary men who became extraordinary American heroes.

Black Tattoo Art II: Modern Expressions of the Tribal ist die zweite Inkarnation dessen, was man als die „Bibel der Blackwork-Tattoos“ bezeichnet. Es ist die Fortsetzung des ersten Bandes, einer fantastischen Reise rund um den Erdball, welche die absolut besten Tattoos präsentiert, die den Zauber dieser uralten Kunstform in aufregenden zeitgenössischen Interpretationen auf dem Körper einfangen. In dem 448 Seiten starken, beeindruckenden Tattooband mit mehr als 600 Abbildungen kann der Leser ganz unterschiedliche Richtungen des „Blackwork-Tattoos“ erkunden. Schwarze Linien, Punkte, Flächen, ob von Hand gestochen oder mit der Maschine tätowiert, alles ist möglich und erlaubt. Das schier unbegrenzte Spektrum an Kreativität reicht von wunderschönen traditionellen Tribals, über sorgfältig ausgeführte Muster und figurative Darstellungen, bis hin zu völlig freien, unkonventionellen Tattoodesigns. Die beeindruckende Vielfalt der Tattoodesigns in Black Tattoo Art II ergibt sich nicht zuletzt durch die umfangreiche Liste internationaler Künstler: 80 Toptätowierer von Sankt Petersburg bis Sao Paulo, von Austin bis Aotearoa, von Barcelona bis Brooklyn und darüber hinaus. Allen gemeinsam ist die Kreativität, die Innovation und der Einfallsreichtum, die in ihren Tätowierungen und künstlerischen Arbeiten zum Ausdruck kommen. Das Buch enthält fünf spannende Kapitel mit kurzen Einführungstexten: Ornamental/Neotribal, Dotwork, Celtic/Nordic, Abstract/Art Brut, und Traditional Revival. Insgesamt offenbaren alle präsentierten Tattoowerke die unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten einer Kunst, die nur durch Nadeln und schwarze Tinte entsteht. Tattookünstler in diesem Buch: Tomas Tomas, Leo Zulueta, László Kis, Christophe Souloumiac, Roxx 2Spirit Tattoo, Daniel DiMattia, Jun Matsui, Nazareno Tubaro, Bong Padilla, Rory Keating, Colin Zumbro, Andreas “Curly” Moore, Rob Deut, Mikel Johnson, Mike The Athens, Christos (Christ)Zacharopoulos, Psychopat, Gerhard Wiesbeck, Hellenic Stixis, Calen Paris, Jacqueline Spoerlé, Chris Higgins, Phil Cummins, Patrick Hüttlinger, Tim Hunt, Jared Leathers, Dmitry Babakhin, Xed LeHead, Corson Hayes, Cory Ferguson, Tomas Tomas, Jondix, Vincent Hocquet, Daniel DiMattia, Nazareno Tubaro, Thomas Hooper, Galdo Marco, Matt Black, Delphine Noiztoy, Damien Voodoo, Amanda Ruby, Tattoo Pink, Nathan Kostechko, Gerhard Wiesbeck, Goldilox, Garcia Leonam, Kenji Alucky, Colin Dale, Kai Uwe Faust, Pat Fish, Dimon Taturin, Marianne Sundby, Eric Sundby, Fiumix, Kari Kjelskau, Raffaella Olomhè Ricci, Tor Ola Svennevig, Rory Keating, Zele, Simone Pfaff, Volko Merschky, Noon, idexa stern, Little Swastika, Cammy Stewart, Jef, Cy Wilson, Cy Wilson and Caro, Ran 'Ruiner' Maclurkin, Leon Lam tattoo, Loïc aka Xoïl, Yann, Elle Festin, Zel Festin, Tomasi Sulu’ape, Lard Yao Peter, Brent McCown, Durga, Jeremy Lo, Sulu'ape Pili Mo'o Black Tattoo Art II: Modern Expressions of the Tribal, the second incarnation of what has been deemed the “Bible of Blackwork Tattoos,” continues the first volume’s photographic journey across the globe: showcasing the absolute best of tattoos that capture the magic of the ancient art form in exciting contemporary interpretations on the body.
