Famous Fighters of the Second World War. Hardcover.

Famous Fighters of the Second World War. Being already published in 1959, and again in 1960 and 1975, this book was for years one of the standard references about WW2 bomber aircraft and a companion volume to "Famous Fighters of the Second World War". Since 1975 however, there has also substantially more been published about WW2 bombers than between 1945 and 1975. These two books however still give an excellent overview of the main types that flew with all sides during the last World War and were among the first to do so.

It's hard to hit all the bullet points when writing a relatively short book describing something as complex as how a fighter plane was made, built, and flown but this book does it. Aircraft design, production details, armament, modifications and flying characteristics, and what the pilots thought of the aircraft are all covered quite thoroughly in a relatively few pages. I have read entire books about a particular aircraft that were not so interesting as what Green manages to do in the short chapters. I liked this book a lot.

An outstanding bargain. This is actually both volumes of this classic work. The text is clear, concise and literate in a way that puts modern works to shame. Illustrations are clear and scale up nicely with zoom in. Unfortunately some fine print is lost on thing like the cutaways, but for the really important parts it is clear enough. It would be worthy of 5 stars if they had bothered to use the best available transfer technology. There are works out there that prove that it does exist. Still it is not to be missed.

(A 4.5 star effort to me) As the owner of the 3 sister publications, this volume (the first in the series) attempts to cover a lot of ground within its slim dimensions - 18 different aircraft types to be exact, in approximate order of introduction to operational service.

Of necessity the result is very much a brief developmental and operational history of each type, but the information is generally accurate and reliable (we're talking a 1957 publication here). You'll certainly find more comprehensive information about all of the aircraft covered in more recent publications, but William Green laid the groundwork in this pioneering effort. Each type is well illustrated (all B&W but who cares), with reasonably comprehensive side profiles of major sub-types as well as a highly detailed 3-view artwork. Even 50+ years on, many of the photographs have not found their way into more recent publications.

This was arguably the first (and very successful) attempt to cut through the wartime and post-war propaganda, nationalistic hype etc. to objectively lay bare the strengths and weaknesses of the respective designs.

Covering 6 British, 4 US, 3 Japanese, and 5 German types, this volume aims high and rarely misses - the original benchmark publication.

Not that easy to find, but if you're interested in the classic aircraft of WW2 do yourself a favour and chase this one up. You won't be disappointed.

As a young aviation enthusiast, I was first introduced to the amazing aircraft of the second World War by William Green's books in our local library. I spent many hours studying the pictures and text of these volumes. The drawings, while in black & white, are excellent! More recent books have added much, both in information and images, but these books deserve a place on the shelves of anyone interested in the aircraft of WWII.

Thoroughly detailed with excellent photos and drawings to show model evolutions. Some even have detailed anatomical schematics as well. Even has information on testing, design and production woes or challenges. Excellent book.

Old book condition wise. Good read. holds up against more moder works considering it's age.

I am quite happy with my purchase. It's packed with information on the topic. I suggest that anyone interested in the subject of fighter aircraft of WW II, whether an history buff or modeler, try and get a copy.
My husband says it contains the most informative in its era. Historical information and photos. He recommends this book has a must have for those interested with fighters.
