Combat Aircraft of World War Two
This is one of the very best World War Two aviation books I have read and glad to own. Very detailed covering entries by country of manufacture. The first third of the book contains the color plates with a normal size male pilot drawn to scale in every color plate for size comparison to the aircraft. What a neat idea! The rest of the book is the line drawings with all the technical specifications of the aircraft, again by country of manufacture. This book from 1977 is more detailed and better researched then some newer books claiming to be complete WW2 Combat Aircrat directories. This book is a must have for any WW2 aviation enthusiast, especially if you want in depth rich details and specifications of the aircraft in service during this period.
