 With the Battle of Britain won, and the first chinks in Goerings armour exposed, RAF Fighter Command is at last able to carry the war to the enemy.  It is the bittersweet winter of 41.  Mk Vb Spitfires, having taken off as the first streaks of dawn spread across the morning sky, return to a snow-covered airfield after a dawn patrol over the Channel.  Inhabitants of the sleepy English village begin to stir with the familiar sound of Merlin engines, counting each and every one of their fighter boys home.

 One of Frances most venerated pilots in World War 1 was Capitaine Georges Guynemer whose final victory tally has never been fully established, although he has been officially credited with 53 kills.

 The distinctive blue and red livery of these two Albatros D.Vs identify them as Jasta 18 machines in Berthold Colours, a reference to their commander at that time, Oblt Rudolf Berthold. The nearest aircraft is that of Leutnant der Reserve Paul Strahle who scored six victories with this unit before taking his aircraft (4594/17) with him to Jasta 57 where he would score a further 8. Each aircraft carried a personal emblem, in the case of Strahle a white axe whilst the similar aircraft of Ltn d R Arthur Rahn displays a diamond pattern. The fuselage crosses on both aircraft were crudely painted over and are still just visible beneath the blue.

 The only Type 82 destroyer to be built for the Royal Navy, HMS Bristol (D23) was designed for a role that never materialised, the rest of her class being cancelled when the intended CVA-01 class of aircraft carriers that she was intended to escort and defend were themselves cancelled in the late 1960s.  Bristol enjoyed a long and varied career however, her size making her a suitable flagship for <i>Operation Ocean Safari 81</i> before going in for a refit and joining the Royal Navy Task Force in the South Atlantic during the Falklands Campaign.  Paid off in 1991, she is now moored permanently at Whale Island, Portsmouth, as a training ship.  HMS Bristol is depicted here slipping quietly out of Portsmouth Harbour in the 1970s.

 Samurai Warriors of the Sekighahara campaign 1600. The most important and decisive battle in the history of Japan, Sekigahara was the culmination of the Power struggle triggered by the death of the great warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The two rivals for power were Ishida Mitsunari and Tokugawa Ieyasu. The contest was ultimately settled by force of arms in a small mountain valley in central Japan. By the end of the day 40,000 heads had been taken and Ieyasu was master of Japan. Within three years the Emperor would grant him the title he sought - Shogun.

 Utah beach was the great American success story of D-day.  Compared to the difficulties encountered on Omaha beach, the casualties suffered by the American 4th Division on Utah beach were described as 'light'.  Although tactical problems were encountered on the Utah beach landings, i.e. the loss of many of the landing control teams, the strong tide causing problems, German placed mines sinking vessels, and the overall atmosphere of fog / low visibility, the American infantry were able to subdue and overcome the German beach defences and penetrate inland, with much greater speed than the divisions that landed on Omaha.  Terrain played a role with regard to the difference in combat experience between the two American beaches.  The high bluffs at Omaha gave the German defenders a certain geographical advantage, whereas the low-lying sand dunes at Utah favored the mobility of the American infantry and armor.  The low-lying terrain at Utah also favored the Allied air bombardment.  Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr, the President's son, landed with the first wave at Utah beach.  Roosevelt, together with the 8th Infantry regiment's commanding officer, James Van Fleet, directed the tactical battle on Utah beach, and coordinated the American advance inland.

 Eddie Irvine drove the Jaguar R2 during the 2001 Monaco Grand Prix and is captured in print darting through the Nouvelle Chicane on his way to third place and teams first podium position. With its beautiful backdrop of yachts and water, the circuit is famed for being the most picturesque and demanding track in the Formula 1 world series. It is a unique street circuit and a remarkable creation on the streets of this small Monarchy.  The car, chief designer John Russell and chief aerodynamicist Mark Handford under the leadership of technical director Steve Nichols, was launched in Coventry on 9th January 2001, and having switched to Michelin tyres, hopes were high at the start of the 2001 season. Eddie Irvines co-driver was Brazilian-born Luciano Burti who was previously Jaguar Racing development driver.  The engine was powered by the CR-3 VIO from Cosworth Racing but it was difficult to achieve satisfactory wind tunnel results as the tunnel used was in California so the car suffered a little aerodynamically. It has been described as possibly overly robust!

Unique in the history of Formula One motor racing are the Schumacher brothers. After seeing the success of his elder brother, whilst climbing through the ranks to stardom in F1, Ralf Schumacher had his sights set firmly upon beating his illustrious brother. At last in a competitive car, we see Ralfs Williams BMW leading Michaels Ferrari through the Veedol chicane at Nurburgring during the 2003 European Grand Prix. This event which Ralf went on to win turned the tables on the 2001 race which also saw the two fighting wheel to wheel at times but in that case Ralf could not quite match the Ferrari of his brother Michael. The race threw the championship for both constructors and drivers wide open and set the stage for one of the most exciting conclusions of a championship season for years.
