Publisher Comments:

This book provides a fascinating at a glance guide to every major military aircraft type ever flown, all illustrated with a detailed profile artwork, accompanied by details and specifications listing dimensions, powerplant, weights, armament, and performance.

Arranged chronologically by type or theatre to allow easy comparison, like each title in the Visual Encyclopedia series, each featured aircraft or variant in this book is illustrated with an excellent full color artwork, showing in great detail its characteristics and markings, and completed with an informative caption. Many aircraft are illustrated in profile, and others in a three quarter view. This book features all of the most famous aircraft from around the world, such as the Supermarine Spitfire, Junkers Ju 87 Stuka, North American Aviation F-86 Sabre, and McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom.

With over 1000 outstanding color illustrations and photographs, this is an authoritatively researched book that celebrates the many diverse designs of more than a century of military aviation.
