The Gladiator was the last fighter biplane to serve with the RAF, and saw action in France, Greece and North Africa with that service. It was also used operationally by several other air arms before and during WW2. Design, development and use of the Gladiator is described in detail in this new edition, which completely updates and extends the authors earlier, best-selling, book. Much new information is included, more photos have been added, and the artwork has been revised and added to so much so that the material fills two volumes! This volume covers the development and history, and Vol 2 describes the surviving airframes and includes an extensive walk-around section with detail photos of all aspects of the airframe.
Also the first time will be published 3D drawings and 3D-stereo (anaglyphic) drawings.
