My Giveaway

Four Episodes of Hunters in the Sky

Are you studying World War II? Do you know a World War II enthusiast? Does a family member enjoy learning about historical airplanes and their pilots? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you'll like this giveaway.

This giveaway is for the first four volumes of Hunters in the Sky presented by Bob Dole. Each VHS tape is new, in its original plastic packaging, and suitable for giving as a gift. Below are the episode descriptions from the back of the boxes:

Volume 1: What Separated the Hunters from the Hunted

Knights in the Sky

Defending the Realm

The Battle of Britain

Volume 1 details the flory of Ameria's pilot heroes as well as the terifying antics of Luftwaffe, Red army, Royal Air Force and Japanese aeronautical legends. You'll get a bird's eye view of the fighter pilot's personality, as survivors from all sides tell their stores of troubles, tactics, and triumphs. See the famous Battle of Britain, military history's most significant air conflict, in this thrilling video anthology which shows exactly why he who rules the sky will dominate the battlefield.

Volume 2: Waging War in the Heart of the Reich

Big Friends, Little Friends

Struggle for Supremacy

Volume 2 spotlights the struggle for supremacy in the war-torn skies over Europe as, from the first to the last, nations frantically seek to give their fighter pilots the winning edge in planes, engines, guns, and tactics in ferocious aerial combat by day and night. Now equipped with long-range fighters, American aces escort heavy bombers to distand targets in the ehart of the Reich, and the Germans shock the Allies by winning the race to commit jet and rocket fighters to the battle--a race won too late. Herman Goring sees P-51s over Europe and admits that, for the Third Reich, at least, the war is lost.

Volume 3: Who Will Prevail?

Hell in the Pacific

Assault on the Fortress Europe

Volume 3 lives through the United States' stunning triumph at Midway--as Japan lost 4 carriers, 300 planes and over 3,500 mean. See why the introduction of the outstanding F4U Corsair and the Lockheed P38 Lighting blazed the trail toward VJ DAy and forever changed the course of aeronautical history! Watch as the Allies take the offensive as the tide turns against the Axis in the Mediterranea and Europe. The fury of the war in the air takes a heavy toll on attacker and defender alike but the undermanned and outgunned Luftwaffe is definat in the face of certain defeat.

Volume 4: Flying in the Pacific

Closing the Ring

Victory in the Pacific

Volume 4 shows how the Marine valor paved the way for the aerial assualt on Japan. During the relentless march westward, the rivalry heats up between top aces Dick Bong and Toy McGuire, and Admiral Yamamoto is the victim of aerial assessination. After the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot, Japenese air power declines as American fighter pilots in the Pacific reac the zenith of their deadly profession.

There is one more volume in this series but I don't have it to give you. If you wish to complete the series on your own, you can find it here at Amazon.com. It is only a few dollars plus shipping.
