About this title


From Hurricane to Hornet, from Tiger Moth to Buckmaster, The Secret Years delves into the highly classified world of WWII aircraft testing at Great Britain's Aeroplane and Armament Experimental Establishment. Hundreds of photographs--many of them only recently released--and newly uncovered reports make for an extraordinary look at more than 1,500 British, U.S., and German aircraft and armaments, including experimental machines.


"In all, a book that I found very interesting and while it is not a quick read, is an excellent reference on the performance of a huge variety of aircraft. A book that I can quite easily recommend to you." -Modeling Madness, reviewed by Scott Van Aken, May 2011 (Modeling Madness 2011-05-01)

"This book should appeal to aviation historians and modelers alike, and I cannot recommend it too highly." -IPMS, reviewed by Brian Baker, May 2011 (IPMS 2011-05-30)
