Detailed Study
The first air war evolved quickly. From rather humble beginnings in the war’s early days, with pistols and grenades carried aloft, to the strategic bombers and heavily armed fighters of 1918.
Many of the photos and illustrations in this book are strong enough to be displayed in full page format. This is a unique photo-study, explaining the adaption and modification of ground weapons, as well as purpose made weaponry.
From his secret base in North America, buried deep beneath a mountain of historical photographs, Tom Laemlein has been redefining the concept of the military history "photo study" for the past 20 years. Leveraging his massive photo library, Tom has a knack for publishing images that expose the details of the weapons and battles of the 20th Century, much to the delight of a global audience of historians and modelers. 

This is his fourth book for Canfora Publishing.
The book has just been released for sale to the public for a special pre-order price for a short time only for 20% off! RRP (€26.50), so get in quickly! 
It is expected to ship to buyers from late January 2023
