Flying Legends of World War II

Fifty Allied Force’s WWII aircraft types are illustrated in previously unpublished black and white and unique colour photographs. Each type is described giving vital data on development history, combat record, famous pilots and significant air battles. Performance, range and weapon loads are also included. The unique colour photographs are from the collection of the late William B. Slate, an aviation photographer who strove to capture the thrilling perspective that can only come from close-up, in-flight vantage points from an aircraft flying in formation.

Philip Handleman has published 21 previous successful aviation titles and is a highly respected contributor to newsletters and magazines. Airlife published several of his books including Chicago O’Hare, Speedsters and Cityhoppers. He lives in Birmingham, Michigan, USA.
