Some were pre-war aircraft that lasted only a short while into the conflict; others fought on throughout the war, undergoing great modification or even metamorphosis as a result; and finally there were aircraft developed in the course of hostilities that were just too late to play a significant part. Both combat and non-combat aircraft are covered by text detailing each type's origins, history and variants, followed by a full technical specification. Additionally, each type is illustrated in color and with a three-view diagram, the more important types also receiving large-scale color treatment." Book is Fine. Minor wrinkle at top edge of both flaps.
