British Aircraft of World War I: 1914-18

by Edward Ward
Organized chronologically by type, British Aircraft of World War I: 1914–18 offers a highly illustrated guide to the main types of aircraft used by British and Commonwealth air forces during World War I.
In this book, all the major and many minor aircraft types are featured, including single-seat fighters, reconnaissance aircraft, bombers, floatplanes, and airships. This includes the highly successful Sopwith Camel, which is thought to have achieved more aerial victories than any other fighter in the war; the French-made Farman MF.11 Shorthorn reconnaissance plane, which served with the Royal Navy as well as in the Dardanelles and Mesopotamia; the Handley Page Type O, Britain’s first true heavy bomber, which was used to attack industrial targets in the Rhineland; and the highly maneuverable Felixstowe F.2 flying boat, which flew patrols over the North Sea throughout the war, often fighting U-boats and Zeppelins. Each featured profile includes authentic markings and color schemes, while every separate model is accompanied by exhaustive specifications. Packed with vivid artworks with detailed specifications, British Aircraft of World War I: 1914–18 is a key reference guide for military modelers and World War I enthusiasts.
