Overview

Warbirds. Weapons that fly. They home in on their targets in the air, on the ground, or at sea, fire their guns and rockets or drop their bombs, and disappear. They shoot down other warbirds. They sink ships. They destroy cities. And they kill people. They hold a grim fascination. In the 100 years since the first military aircraft were developed and flown, they and their successors have cost humankind billions of dollars and millions of lives. They have become so ingenious that they seem to defy gravity and radar and their bombs can shatter buildings without harming people. Or so they say. Deadliest Warbirds is a full color, comprehensive tribute to the greatest warbirds to ever take to the skies.
