Description

Established in the early days of aviation, "Flight" and "The Aeroplane" were considered essential reading for all aviation enthusiasts of the period, "Aeroplane Monthly", the latter's successor, is today viewed in a similar vein. All three publications have set exacting standards for technical drawings over the years. Many of these fine cutaways, featuring virtually every major combat type, are being republished here after years in the archives. All the major Allied and Axis combat types of World War II are covered in this period work, and the cutaways are accompanied by the best photography from the huge "Aeroplane" picture archive, individual specifications, and a potted history of each type and of the cutaway artists themselves by aviation historian Bill Gunston.show more
