Format: Hardcover
green's series remains one of the first and still one of the best tech/history books of ww2 aircraft. small in size (5.5x5 in) the books are large in stature. vol 2 deals w/fighter aircraft from great britain and italy. despite the short aircraft bio's, accompained w/b+w photos & 3 view drawings, each review is highy detailed yet accessible to even pedestrian readers of flight histories. the 10 vol series first appeared in 1961 w/aircraft presented by nationality within type. unfortunately the series ends w/german bombers thru the me 328. bombers of great britain, italy, japan and the usa are not represented. still, an essential addition to any flight library.

Format: Hardcover
My edition dates from 1960, hence it is venerable by any measure.

But the information has certainly not been either surpassed, not the scope of the volume itself matched in the intervening years.

I've encountered a solitary typo (see if you can get that today) and one slightly glaring error regarding the Bloch machines.

Mr. Green knew his stuff, and remains in my mind THE greatest historian of WW2 aircraft. Anything less than 5 stars would be an insult.

The books were ordered last week. Vol.1 was received Friday afternoon, Vol.2 came two days later. Each came in clean and complete order. Even without the dust jacket, the hardcover on Vol. 1 (from kkay03) was in very good (still black) condition and the pages are in very good condition. The hardcover on Vol.2 (from Kismet Books)is in good condition, slightly faded, but with all pages in very good condition. No damage was discovered to the covers, binding, or interior of either book.

These volumes were published in the early 1960s by Doubleday and written by William D. Green as serious and thorough reviews of the identity and development of the aircraft from all nations involved in WW II, they do not disappoint. Copies of original publications of each of the volumes come entirely from collectors who have held them for 40 to 50 plus years.

The book arrived quickly in as advertised condition. I now have the complete set of three volumes, the other two of which I purchased new. This book is in condition comparable to those.
