NOSE ART - AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY FROM WWI TO...

Aircraft nose art has long been a military institution. First appearing in the form of a sea monster on the front of an Italian flying boat in 1913, through WWII, Vietnam, and on to today, Nose Art catalogs and presents it all.

Hundreds of detailed illustrations through the decades give the full picture of the evolution and history of these mini-murals. From early shark and tiger mouths below front propellers, to historical logos and Loony Toons characters, to the modern banning of nude pinups, author Allan Burney explores this incredible subject in detail.

Tony Holmes has worked as Osprey Publishing's aerospace editor since 1989, having previously served as an author/photographer for this publishing house in Australasia.  He is widely acknowledged as a leading expert on all periods of aviation history although his personal love is for the Battle of Britain, on which he has written a number of well received titles.  For this book, he has contributed on his favorite subject - the legendary duels between Spitfires and Messerschmitts over southern England in summer 1940.
