Fighter: Technology, Facts, History

£9.99

Product description

Ralf Leinburger's FIGHTER: TECHNOLOGY, FACTS, HISTORY is a comprehensive guide to fighters flown by various air forces over the past 100 years. Originally published in Germany in 2008, this English-language edition comes courtesy of England's Parragon Publishing.

The fighters described in Leinburger's book are divided into four chapters covering World War I designs, Between-the-Wars a/c, WW II designs and Postwar Fighters. The first fighter covered is the Spad S.XIII; the last, the Eurofighter Typhoon. Each chapter has a wide-ranging selection of fighters. Within the Inter-War chapter, for example, can be found the Gladiator, Buffalo, I-16, Ki-27, P-40, He 51, Hawker Demon/Fury/Hurricane, F4F, A5M, Spitfire, C.200, F4B/P-12, Ju 88, etc.

Each a/c rates a two-six page write-up. Most get two pages; other more famous designs like the Bf 109 or P-51, four-six. Write-ups include brief technical specs, development history and combat ops. Sidebars on a/c designs, famous designers like Messerschmitt, Bloch and Camm, power-plants, radar, etc. are featured throughout the book. Hundreds of b&w and color photographs and diagrams are included as well.

So, whether your interests lie in Sopwith Pups, F9Fs, MiG-15s or F-15s, you'll probably find something of interest in FIGHTERS.

Excellent pages, a little d/j wear.
