Not just an interesting story of a prototype design at a time when
there was so much going on in aircraft development, but many
archive images of this futuristic looking design show us what it
looked like, and they are accompanied by some more superb artwork
by Adam Tooby. Another good value, well researched book from Osprey
in their X Planes series.
A most worthwhile volume.
