Book Description London: Hamish Hamilton, (). First Edition., 1968. Quarto, royal blue leather (hardcover), gilt letters, 240 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner bookplate; in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. Illustrated with numerous photographs. From dust jacket: Early in 1917 a new aircraft with an unusual configuration appeared in the skies over the Western Front. Its effect on aircraft design and air power was dramatic. Although three-winged aircraft had played a prominent role in the pioneer days of flying, no one had ever applied such a design to war aeroplanes until the advent of the remarkable Sopwith triplane. "We used to fly thirty or forty miles behind the German lines," wrote one Sopwith pilot, "and wait with the early morning sun behind us over the enemy aerodromes. As the German aircraft rose from the airfield, we picked them off. If they came for us, we simply went up into a climbing turn and there was nothing they could do about it." The Germans answered with the Fokker triplane, which found still greater fame at the hands of the great aces such as Voss and von Richthofen. Suddenly aircraft designers everywhere tried to emulate the success of the Fokker and the Sopwith, until over ninety types had been built or projected before the war ended. Evan Hadingham. recounts the story of triplane development during the 1914-18 War, introducing much new material on the Sopwith and Fokker, for which full details of design and operations are given. The author follows this with the most comprehensive study, including specifications, of each triplane known to have been built in the years 1914-18, incorporating much new data and previously unknown types. There are also chapters on the origin of pre-1914 triplane and the configuration's rapid disappearance after the war, and its brief period of glory.
