Fighter! 10 Killer Planes of WW II

Fighter! 10 Killer Planes of WW II

James Laurier  (Autor)
Plunge into the action, and marvel at ten of the best and best-known World War II fighter aircraft!

There´s no shortage of fantastic archival aviation photography from World War II. But photos from the period fall short in three major categories: the vast majority are black and white, most were composed under duress, and very few capture moments that have since entered the written record of aerial conflict.

Award-winning artist Jim Laurier rectifies the situation in this stunning, large-format, hardcover book celebrating World War II´s top fighter aircraft. From design and weaponry to the daring tales of the pilots who flew the aircraft,Fighter! is a unique and lavishly presented look at World War II aviation through the imagination of military aviation´s top artist and illustrator. The book presents chapters about ten legendary aircraft, each featuring paintings of the fighter in action, multi-view color plates (including cockpits), archival photography for context, and the stories behind the planes´ design and service. The aircraft featured are:

Messerschmitt Bf 109

Hawker Hurricane

Lockheed P-38 Lightning

Mitsubishi A6M Zero

Curtiss P-40 Warhawk

Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Werger

Supermarine Spitfire

North American P-51 Mustang

Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

Messerschmitt Me 262 Schwalbe

While each of Laurier´s paintings and illustrations are breathtaking and technically exacting, the stories highlight key moments in battle and the nostalgia surrounding these fighters and their pilots, offering anecdotes that enhance the art´s power. A complete appendix includes key statistics for each aircraft. A warbird history like no other,Fighter! brings the romance of aerial combat, the power of agile takeoffs, and the fury of deadly weapons alive on the page.
