DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
When Hitler invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, aircraft technology had scarcely changed in the 21 years since the end of World War I. In the air war that followed, outdated biplanes such as the Gloster Gladiator and PZL P.11 were decimated by the superior Messerschmitt Bf 109, but the Luftwaffe fared less well over Britain when its Heinkel He 111 and Junkers Ju 88 bombers met fierce resistance from the Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire.
As the war progressed, the US Eighth Air Force pounded German factories day and night, Boeing B-17 and Consolidated Liberator bombers encountering new weapons such as the Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter and Me 163 rocket interceptor.
From 1942, the Pacific was the setting for gruelling battles between the Mitsubishi A6M Zero and US aircraft such as the Grumman F6F Hellcat and Vought F4U Corsair. The development of the Boeing B-29 bomber proved decisive, facilitating the end of the war with the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Covering all these aircraft and more, this book details the development, performance, and weaponry of 75 of the most fascinating and influential fighting aircraft of World War II.
