When Wingleader first set out on this series, their aim was not only to reproduce the best wartime photographs available, but also to have the most knowledgeable authors on the subject to write about them.
Chris Thomas, the son of a Typhoon pilot, is probably the world's leading expert on the Hawker Typhoon and has an incredible reference library on this classic fighter. Originally wingleader thought about having one volume on the Typhoon and one on the Tempest, but with Chris's archive and knowledge, they are thinking of another four or even five books on the two aircraft.
This first one covers the early days of Typhoon development and operations and includes the usual mix of high-res wartime photos, informative captions and plenty of 'I never knew that' moments, especially in the area of recognition markings which these early Typhoons saw their fair share of.
As with all the books in this series, Wingleader have enhanced the photos to pull out the shadow detail and have added arrows and letters to identify points of interest.
This book contains approx 120 original wartime/pre-war photos and 6 in-depth colour profiles
