{detailed description}Continuing the histories of French fighter aircraft that were started in Volume 4 of this series, this book documents in the same depth French fighters from the Hanriot HD.1 to the Morane-Saulnier Type AN two-seater of 1918.
Richly detailed and copiously illustrated, the narratives recount, with a thoroughness never before approached in any published work, the evolution of the fixed-gun tractor fighter aeroplane. In doing so, they correct several long-held but false beliefs. Herein is the fullest account ever compiled of the pioneering work of Raymond Saulnier, Roland Garros and Jules Hue, together with details of many contemporary ideas in this important and fascinating field of aviation history.
The text includes references to hitherto undocumented projects, there is much invaluable information on French aeroengines of the period, and the numerous illustrations include many photographs now published for the first time.
