About this title


The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, sixteen nations come together to keep the peace in Europe, has for fifty years relied on its air arms to maintain credible strength and stay ahead of any potential enemy. Freedom of the Skies graphically illustrates the ever more sophisticated aircraft and weapons used in this vital role.
More than 250 photographs, many of them stunning air-to-air shots, show the progress made from the post-war piston-engined fighters and bombers, through the first and second generation jets, to the technologically advanced stealth aircraft of the present day.
Aviation author Peter R. March details the armament and capability of each aircraft type, matching their performance to the role required of them by NATO.
