The Gladiator was the last biplane fighter in service with the RAF. Despite its obsolescence in 1939 it saw considerable active service in WW2, from the African desert to the snows of Finland. In this two-volume set, Alex Crawford tells the complete story of the Gladiator. Volume 1 covers the development and operational history of the aircraft, with full details of all the units which flew the Gladiator, the many foreign users, and air-to-air claims made by Gladiator pilots. In Volume 2, the technical specifications, details of surviving airframes and more colour schemes will be presented. Both volumes contain many photos, scale plans, and colour profiles. Together they represent the most detailed coverage of this classic fighter available, an invaluable resource for aviation enthusiasts and historians.
