Douglas DC-1, DC-2, DC-3 The First Seventy Years, by Jennifer Gradidge
This massive A4 hard-back book, printed in two volumes to ensure robustness, is not just a new version of Air-Britain's famous 1984 edition - it is intensely revised and greatly expanded to over 700 pages, with some 140 colour photos added to an extensive new black and white selection.
Drawing on the expertise of numerous specialists from around the world, this book contains the results of painstaking research on civil aircraft, and is supported by a wealth of previously unpublished information on military using the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, south-east Asia and elsewhere.
Full details of the known histories of almost 11,000 aircraft that were built in the United States are provided, with added sections on the Russian Li-2 and Japanese production, as well as the various Turbo conversions.
There is also an invaluable registration-c/n cross-reference and extensive details of the many operators of this iconic aircraft.
