From the cover: “This authoritative book, written in a lively style and superbly illustrated by one of the finest technical artists working today, shows in detail the major fighter types that have been built by the aircraft-producing nations. Not only are these related to the technical advances in engine design and aerodynamics that made such development possible but also to the strategic need for fighters as an indispensable weapon of war. Both tactics and men have an important place in this book, as well as the wide variety of uses found for fighters including interception, bomber escort, ground attack, and fleet protection when flown from the decks of carriers.”
