British Aircraft Before the Great War, Hardback Book

British Aircraft Before the Great War Hardback


For the very first time, the history of British pre-World War I aircraft has been gathered together in one volume, with more than 900 of them well illustrated.

This new book constitutes a most valuable contribution about a remarkable period in aviation history and is a memorial to the bravery and inventiveness of the intrepid pioneers of that far off era.

Among the many famous manufacturer's covered are Avro, Sopwith, Shorts, and Bristol.

Many lesser known designers and builders such as Martin-Handasyde and Howard Wright are also given ample coverage.
