The Encyclopedia of Military Aircraft is a truly magnificent collection, which will find pride of place on the shelves of anyone with an interest in aviation. Ever since US army Lieutenant Paul Back released sandbags representing bombs over Los Angeles in January 1910, the potential for aircraft to play a decisive part in war has never been in doubt. Two world wars and conflicts in Vietnam, Korea, and the Gulf proved the necessity for ever faster and more agile aircraft, resulting in some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring machines ever constructed.
This highly illustrated volume features more than 650 of the most significant combat aircraft manufactured since the beginning of the twentieth century, from the WW1 Sopwith Camel to WWII Legends such as the Spitfire and Lancaster, and from early jets such as the Hawker Hunter to the 21st century fighting aircraft such as the F-22 Raptor and B2 stealth bomber.
