Cheers Fred.
It is a great reference book. I have been searching the internet looking for some of the aircraft featured in the book in kit form, particularly the Bréguet 691 to 695, and the Caudron CR.174.
All the best.

Looks like a great book, but I would like the author to come up with the reasons why he states that the French Air Force was the most powerful air force at the end of WW1.
