Description

FOREWORD

by J.M. Bruce

Keeper of Aircraft and Aviation Records

R.A.F. Museum, Hendon

 

In the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon, the Departments of Printed Books and of Aviation Records between them house much unique and valuable archive material relating to the aircraft of the world. This material has provided a substantial part of the foundations underlying the massive research task that has gone into the making of Combat Aircraft of World War Two.

 

( ... ) This volume, in my view, presents the optimum compilation of hard fact. The very proliferation of books dealing, in varying degrees of accuracy and thoroughness, with the aviation of the 1939 - 45 war makes essential the compilation of a single, compact book providing the basic data on all the combat aircraft of that conflict. In fact, nothing did more to emphasize the need for such a book than the research undertaken in its preparation.

 

( ... ) Excellent likenesses of many of the aircraft are provided, in line drawings and in colour, and themselves represent untold hours of research and highly talented work. How admirably they complement and illustrate the text will become evident to the reader however he chooses to use this volume. ( ... )

J.M. Bruce, Hendon, 1977.
