Synopsis

The Encyclopedia of Aircraft of WWII is an exhaustive survey of the aircraft flown by all the combatants in Europe and the Pacific, including such famous aircraft as the P-51 Mustang, Supermarine Spitfire, Yakovlev Yak-3, Messerschmitt Me 109 and Vought F4U Corsair.

Written by a team of experts, this comprehensive volume provides specification boxes for each aircraft listing powerplant, performance, weights, dimensions and armament (with all weights and measures given in metric and imperial), and a detailed description of the type's development and service history.

Each aircraft is illustrated with a number of outstanding photographs as well as a three-view illustration. Annotations point out specific features, such as camouflage, markings, performance, seating and armaments. Additional feature boxes offer a rounded picture of some of the world's most famous aircraft.

With authoritative text and more than 1500 photographs and artworks, The Encyclopedia of Aircraft of WWII is essential reading for both the expert and general enthusiast.
