Product description


This book is a look at an aspect of 20th-century military aviation, the decoration of individual aircraft with their own unique nose art. Regarded by many as irreverant at best, mindless graffiti at worst, the story behind it is based on the belief that such adornments enhance esprit de corps within units facing the daily stress of battle. From World War I to the Gulf War, nose art has flourished on aircraft ranging from biplanes to bombers and fighters old and new.
