The World Aircraft series provides a comprehensive and well-documented history of aviation. This third volume World War 11-Part 1 covers the aircraft of sixteen European countries during the period of the Second World War. The book deals with the aviation industries of Great Britain, Germany, Italy and France - including the minor types and foreign built aircraft used by these four nations. Summaries are provided for countries such as Czechoslovakia, Holland, Poland, Sweden, Yugoslavia, Belgium, Romania and Finland which were less involved in aviation development: and Norway, Denmark, Hungary and Greece which were totally dependent on foreign-built aircraft. There are also sections covering the major fighter and bomber aeroplanes of the war; camouflage patterns used; and details of some of the most noteworthy engines of the period. Each entry is fully illustrated; there are over 230 colour illustrations, plus many additional line drawings, charts and diagrams. 320 pps.
