About this title


When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, aviation technolgy had hardly changed since World War I more than two decades earlier. In the air war that followed, the speed, armament and capability fo military aircraft progressed at an intense pace, leading to the development of new technologies and weapons that had scarecely been imagined in the years before World War II. --- This book profiles 35 aircraft from the twentieth century's greatest conflict, from the legendary Supermarine Spitfire and P-51 Mustang to innovative designs such as the Messerwschmitt Me 262 and Boeing B-29. Each aircreaft is presented in a unique seven-view format, showing not only the left and right profiles and top and front views, but also the view from the rear, and also fraom belowe, which reveals the weapons hardpoints or bomb bay, and the undercarriage configuration. The s pectacularly detailed digital artworks, created in 3 D thenrendered as elevations, have never been available in book form before. Published here alongside infromed text, archive photography, and full specifications, these unique artworks make this appealing book a must for modellers and aviation buffs alike.
