Presented in an innovative landscape format, and illustrated with a wide selection of photographs, Aircraft of World War II is a fascinating and informative guide to over 120 aircraft that saw service during World War II. Densely packed with information, this book covers an array of designs, from the pre-war biplanes like the Gladiator and Swordfish, to the high-powered warbirds such as the P-51 Mustang and Supermarine Spitfire, the veterans of the Pacific war such as the Grumman F4F Wildcat and B-29 Superfortress and the early jets such as the Me 262 that entered service towards the war’s end. The book contains detailed features on more than 100 combat aircraft from the greatest global conflict. Each aircraft is covered in detail, with feature boxes outlining its development, technical specifications, combat and performance data and variants. Unique graphics allow the reader to compare specific features like firepower, troop-carrying capacity, and bombload to those of other aircraft of the same type.
