    DescriptionThe author's previous two-volume history of British private aircraft between the wars is the seminal work on the topic. He has now extended the story into the post-war years, and describes the many changes and developments in the industry after 1945. From being a world leader in private light aircraft, the British industry struggled and ultimately failed to compete with the US and French industries. How and why this happened is described in detail by someone who was heavily involved in the industry, and suitable blame is apportioned between governments, financiers and designers! Volume 1 is profusely illustrated with photographs from the author's unrivalled collection, and 3-view plans of all significant aircraft.
