Classics
US Aircraft of World War II
Photographed by Mark Meyer

This is a First Edition

Condition and description: Extensive wear to dust jacket including small tears and black scuff marks on back. Binding is tight and pages clean.

From inside the dust jacket: "Today's classics, they are rare vestiges of a proud heritage. Time Magazine photographer Mark Meyer has captured the essence of these machines in his photographs....Complementing Meyer's photography is an eloquent introduction written by Walter J. Boyne, retired director of the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC, who discusses the development and preservation of classic US warbirds of World War II.

Classics includes interviews with a number of pilots who flew aircraft during the war. Their accounts of pilot training, the often primitive conditions of base camps, the black humor of war, and the grim, desperate valor of aerial warfare are spell-binding.

There is also a powerful selection of archival photographs gathered from public and private collections of WWII photography...Classics closes with a useful reference section that includes manufacturer, dimensions, weight, engine, ceiling, range and armament specifications, along with brief aircraft histories, three-view line drawings, and photograph identifications for 27 different aircraft types.
