Aircraft versus Aircraft tells the fascinating story of these brave and tenacious men and the aircraft in which they fought from the early dawn of rudimentary tactics to the sophisticated technology of the present day. Using superb diagrammatic paintings Norman Franks illustrates the often complex manoeuvres of air combat on which the survival of each pilot depended. And through the compelling stories of fighter aces such as Baron von Richthofen, Albert Ball, Saburo Sakai, `Sailor’ Malan and Joseph McConnell whose skills and heroism have passed into legend, he recreates – for enthusiast and general reader alike – the dangerous and exciting world in which they lived and died.
