    One thought on “The Great Book Of World War II Airplanes”

    1. Gigantic! This must be a collector item. So big, the binding is disintegrating under its own weight. I will never sell it -- it can go with me to the grave, where I can marvel at the illustrations and diagrams in the afterlife.

    2. An amazing book with fold out pictures and Ety in depth details of a variety of planes. If you can manage to find a copy of this rare book be warned, it is huge and difficult to look at at times.

    3. Fantastic artwork and gatefolds make this book a must for anyone interested in modelling World War II aircraft.
