Overview

In almost two hundred archive photographs Leo Marriott traces the development of British and American jet fighters during the first pioneering decade of their production. In many ways, the period from 1944 to 1954 was one of the most exciting and innovative in the history of military aviation. Rare images show the first jet fighters flown by the RAF toward the end of World War II and takes the story forward to the most advanced designs that played a key role in the Korean War. The range of experimental and operational aircraft that were conceived and built during this short time was remarkable.

Early Jet Fighters: British and American 1944-1954 is a graphic and informative introduction to an extraordinary stage in the evolution of the modern warplane.
