Classic Military Aircraft is a comprehensive guide to the world's fighting aircraft from the beginning of heavier-than-air flight to the end of World War II. Densely packed with information, this book covers an array of biplane, triplane and monoplane designs, from World War I scouts, through the dead ends and unusual prototypes of the interwar years, to high-powered World War II warbirds such as the P-51 Mustang and Supermarine Spitfire. Aircraft featured include: World War I legends such as the Fokker Dr.I triplane flown by the Red Baron, the timeless SPAD XIII, and British stalwarts of the Western Front including the Sopwith Pup and R.A.F. RE.8; Early World War II types such as the Hawker Hurricane and Messerschmitt Bf 109 and veterans of the Pacific war such as the Grumman F4F Wildcat and B-29 Superfortress. This book contains detailed features on more than 220 combat aircraft from the first forty years of aviation. Each aircraft is covered in detail, with feature boxes outlining its development, technical specifications, performance data and variants. Unique graphics allow the reader to compare specific features like firepower, troop-carrying capacity, and bombload to those of other aircraft of the same type.

He is the author of several books including Fighter, Fighters of the 20th Century and Combat Legends: A-4 Skyhawk, and has contributed to the World Air Power Journal and Flight International's World Aircraft and Systems Directory.
