255pp & 1.5 kilo packed for post. Using a combination of action photographs, color artwork, and detailed captions, the story of World War II in the air is vividly portrayed. Starting with the 'Sitzkrieg' in 1939, the spreads follow the story of Britain's air force through the desperate struggle of the Battle of Britain, through thousand-bomber raids on German cities, to the end of the war in the Far East.The hundreds of action photographs come from the archives of the Public Record Office in London and are nearly all previously unpublished. War artists working at the time and the top aviation artists of today produced the color paintings. This powerful visual combination is joined by meticulously researched text. Each plane in every photograph is individually identified, along with the story of the mission it was involved in, and the fate of the pilots and air crew. A marvellous resource. dj slight sunning to foredge.
