{detailed description}The two eventful—and colourful—decades of military aircraft represented in this volume range from 1914-18 biplanes like the D.H.10 Amiens to multi-engined monoplane heavy bombers, typified by the Boeing B-17 Fortress. Seventy bombers, patrol and transport aircraft are included, portrayed in the colours of many of the world's air forces.
The 1919-39 period is noteworthy not only for the products of some of the first manufacturers to specialise in bombing aircraft—Breguet, Farman, Handley Page—but for the emergence of notable newcomers to this aspect of military aviation. Among the latter are companies bearing the names of such celebrated American pioneers as Boeing, Curtiss, Douglas and Martin; others from such countries as Japan, Czechoslovakia and Poland, whose aircraft industries began to flourish after 1918; and, inevitably, representatives of Hitler's Luftwaffe, the rapid growth of which in the latter part of the 1930s set the rest of the world rearming and provided the final pre-war spur that rendered the ponderous biplanes of earlier years obsolete.
