Zenith PressZenith Press
Zenith Press came into existence in 2003 as an extension of Motorbooks and it became a leader in military history and aviation publishing. These days the imprint focuses on publishing high-quality illustrated nonfiction for the trade and specialty markets in general history, military history, aviation, technology, and science, as well as in selected areas of cultural and social history - all with a distinctly American angle. From a narrative of a famed American WWII flying squadron to an illustrated celebration of NASA's famed Space Shuttle program and a cultural history of moonshine in the 19th and 20th centuries, Zenith books are engaging American stories with a firm historical foundation.
