This authoritative volume is divided into two main sections covering fighters and bombers. Each traces the development of the aircraft from their first appearance, details their role in major conflicts around the world, and analyses how technological improvements have affected their performance. Special feature topics include nightfighters, bombers of the Spanish Civil War, the first jet v jet combat in Korea, Cold War bombers, inflight refuelling, the Gulf Wars and fighter pilot equipment in the 21st century. This unique volume, illustrated with over 1500 colour and black-and-white photographs, is aimed at both enthusiasts and historians alike, bringing together in one volume all the most significant fighters and bombers that have played important roles in flying history.
