{detailed description}The British Fighter since 1912 is a superb and almost certainly the most detailed, study of the entire development of the British fighting aeroplane.
Nearly 400 types of aeroplane are fully described, along with their development and operational histories. The types range from the Royal Aircraft Factory F.E.2 of 1912, through the two World Wars, to the present day's Harrier, Jaguar and Torrnado.
The successes and failures of the British aircraft industry are recorded as is the part which politics has played in the history of the fighter.
The author, a recognised authority on British military aviation, has divided his subject into nine sections from The First World War and the Origins of Air Combat, through to The Dawn of the Jet Age, and technology for the Cold War In addition, he records the deployment of Fighter Squadrons at various periods from July 1916 to January 1991.
This outstandingly detailed survey of 80 years' fighter development, enriched by a superb collection of photographs and general arrangement drawings, is destined to become, quite simply, the premier reference source for this perennially popular and fascinating subject.
