British Warplanes of World War Two: Combat Aircraft of the RAF and Fleet Air Arm 1939-1945
Author: Daniel J. March (Ed.)
Format: Hardcover
Condition: Good, slight wear to dust jacket

This is a very comprehensive book on the subject. It describes RAF warplanes designed and produced from about 1931 - 1945. Besides warplanes (fighters, bombers, etc.,) it also includes trainers, transports, liaison planes, reconnaissance planes, flying boats and float planes, and gliders. The book is arranged alphabetically by manufacturer. There is a text description (ranging from brief to extensive) of the design development and deployment of each airplane, accompanied by one or two photos (usually black and white) and occasionally a color rendering. Usually, but not always, there is a tabulation of dimensions and performance characteristics. The well-known airplanes are described by 1 to several pages of text and associated photos. The less-known airplanes are described by about a 1/2 page of text and a single photo.

The book also includes US airplanes supplied under lend-lease. It also includes the design failures, prototypes that weren't placed into production, and the less well-known designs of the early 1930s when financial stringencies limited the numbers produced.
