This completes a trilogy that covers the design and development of British fighters and bombers basically from the end of the biplane to the present day. This new volume will again place the emphasis on unbuilt designs that competed with those that flew and it covers the aircraft influenced by World War 2 - projects that were prepared from the mid-1930s in the knowledge that war was coming through to some which appeared after the war was over. The latter will include early jets such as the Attacker, Sea Hawk and Venom which all flew post-war but to wartime or just post-war requirements. In-between will be found fixed gun fighters, turret fighters, twin engine cannon fighters, light, medium and heavy bombers, torpedo bombers and flying boats. The treatment given will match the earlier volumes with detailed descriptions and data and numerous photographs of models or impressions by artist's showing how these designs would have looked. Unlike the post-war years, many unbuilt projects have been lost in time but a great number did manage to survive and these will form the most complete record yet to be published.
