New publication from Fonthill Media: ‘Ultimate Allied Fighters of the Second World War’ written by Justo Miranda is a study of forty-three advanced fighters developed during WWII

During the Second World War, the maximum speeds of aircraft were increased greatly using exotic fuels, artificially overpowered engines, propellers with four, five, and even six blades, and thinner wings with special sections of laminar flow. These overpowered Allied fighters suffered from compressibility buff eting, forcing their designers to refocus their attention on turbojet-powered fighters. Consequently, their designs of aircraft driven by monster piston engines had to be abandoned. In supreme detail, this book presents these abortive designs: forty-three little-known super fighters, illustrated with precise scale drawings.

  • A meticulous study of forty-three advanced fighters developed during the Second World War in the US, Britain, France, Australia and the USSR. Extensively researched and beautifully illustrated with 158 previously unpublished pen-and-ink scale drawings
  • Includes exhaustive development and performance details and full histories of each aircraft, including variants
  • Written by a professional technical illustrator and advisor to the Spanish Air Force Museum
  • Of interest to aviation and military historians, modellers, gamers and flight simulator enthusiasts
