Editor's Pick
18 October 2006

Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an older or out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention. Here's one:

Weale, Elke C., John A. Weale, and Richard F. Barker. Combat Aircraft of World War Two. London: Bracken Books, 1985

No single volume can possibly encompass all the information available about aircraft in use during World War II, but this book compiles specifications for a huge range of models plus air OBs and color plates for representative planes.
