Overview

The Complete Encyclopedia of Flight 1939-1945, Volume II, comprises over one hundred and thirty of the great and distinctive airplanes from the Second World War period. Between 1939 and 1945, for the first time in military history, aviation took center stage, ultimately generating the decisive weapon of the war. World War Two saw advances in aviation technology and aircraft design which ultimately altered the way we think about flight.

All the individual aircraft described are beautifully depicted in drawings by technical artist John Batchelor and their stories are outlined in informative text and specifications by aviation historian Malcolm V. Lowe. A number of rare photographs are also included to further illustrate the momentous historical importance of the aircraft.

Beautiful artwork and great pictures on nearly every page, and a wonderfully laid down history of each chapter. Even the Specs inside are better then wikipedia. In truth, It is a great book to take with you for references, and it is a must have for a very cheap price.
