Jane's fighting aircraft of World War I

£14.99

Product description

This single volume reference offers a comprehensive look at the history and changing technology of military aircraft during years of dramatic invention and rapid development.

Originally the byword for information about ships, `Jane's' has also become the very embodiment for detail in respect of most forms of transport - especially that which was used during the major conflicts of the 20th Century.

Divided into two very large sections; Part A - Aircraft and Part B - Aero Engines, this is an exhaustive study of the aircraft of all nations involved in the 1914-1918 conflict. Countries are listed almost alphabetically (although Britain is listed after China. The Commonwealth countries of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India and South Africa appear immediately after Britain - and these are followed by a brief entry for Bulgaria followed by Denmark!). Within each country's listing, all aircraft then appear in strict alphabetical order by manufacturer. The work commences, however, with an interesting preface and an equally illuminating introduction entitled `Aircraft in the War' from which we learn of Balloon-Aprons, early seaplanes, HMS' Argos and Furious and much more besides.

Excellent all round condition.
