This was the best biplane fighter of World War II. Highly maneuverable and fairly fast, the CR.42 was put into good effect during the early phases of the war. Used by the Regia Aeronautica only briefly as a frontline fighter until the Italian monoplane designs were ready, the CR.42 acquitted itself well and soldiered on through the rest of the war as a ground attack aircraft and night fighter. The CR.42 was also sold in fairly large numbers to Belgium, Hungary and Sweden and was used by the Luftwaffe who resumed production of this aircraft well into 1944. This high-quality series of monographs is exclusively devoted to Italian WW2 aircraft. The series is edited by Giorgio Apostolo, the best known and most respected Italian Aviation Historian and the author of several authoritative texts. The volumes contain text in both English and Italian and contain the history of each aircraft and a technical description of the planes. Each book is lavishly illustrated with drawings from original instruction manuals and never before seen photos. Technical drawings ( 6-views ) are provided in both 1/72 and 1/48 scales; colour profiles, views and cockpit interiors are also provided.
