What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

Michael Turner specialises in motoring and aviation paintings and his work is often regarded as some of the earliest and best examples on such subjects. His interest in aviation and aeroplanes of the Royal Air Force began when he was a child during the Second World War, and became a predominant focus of Turner's work, as seen within this text. Many of the planes featured in this volume no longer exist but are brought vividly to life by Michael Turner, who is renowned for their combination of technical accuracy with unrivalled attention to mood and detail. This volume features over one hundred examples of his work, covering the entire history of the service. This text was written by Chaz Bowyer, a Royal Air Force armaments and explosives instructor who, after he retired from service, wrote and edited over forty books relating to the operations, aircraft, and men of the Royal Flying Corps, Royal Air Force, and Royal Naval Air Service. This text also features a foreword by Raymond Baxter, the famous English television presenter and writer. In a blue cloth binding with the original pictorial dustwrapper.
