Two military experts present a fascinating exploration of the world’s finest combat aircraft, comparing and contrasting adversaries in aerial warfare. From the German Fokker Triplane of World War I and the Allied SPAD XIII, through famous World War II adversaries such as the Hurricane and the Bf 109, to modern aircraft, including the MiG-29 and the F-16, Dogfight looks at warplanes that have done aerial battle against each other. Illustrations display each aircraft with spectacular three-quarter-view art, accompanied by detailed specifications and development history—including the particular squadron associated with that model. Additionally, another spread provides firsthand accounts of the merits and disadvantages of both aircraft, as well as stories of actual clashes between the two.
