GREAT MOMENTS IN AVIATION
Michael John Haddrick Taylor ( December 6th, 1949 ) is one of Britain’s most prolific authors. He began his meteoric writing career at the remarkably young age of 19, when a major publisher gave him the opportunity to contribute to a world - famous yearbook.
Soon he was writing two, three and even four books a year under his own name, allowing his work to reach a much wider audience. This prestigious output of aero - space and other books exceeded 100 titles by the year 2000, gaining him five - star reviews and multi - million sales, with many translations to satisfy worldwide demand.
In a major shift, and after producing three internationally acclaimed one - million - word books, in 2003 he gave up his previous writing genre to become a full - time novelist.
Michael J.H. Taylor has published several books about aviation, such as : Missiles of the world ( with John W.R. Taylor, 1972 ), Encyclopedia of aircraft ( with John W.R. Taylor, 1978 ), Milestones of flight ( with David Mondey, 1983 ), The world's strangest aircraft ( 2001 ), The Times aviators : a history in photographs ( 2005 ).
