It is the opinion of the reviewer that this book will become the standard reference directory for Curtiss fighter aircraft. The evolution of Curtiss fighters from 1917 through the final experiments and decline of the company after WWII are included. Many of the outstanding photographs are being published for the first time. There is no index, but Annex 1 through 5 is a wonderful source of information on Curtiss and Curtiss-Wright aircraft. Annex 1 titled Curtiss-Wright Airplane Model Designations<.i> is not limited to fighters, it is probably the most complete and accurate listing of all Curtiss and Curtiss-Wright produced aircraft up to this time. If you want to know about Curtiss-Wright’s exported fighter aircraft, U.S. Army and U.S. Navy fighters, Curtiss experiments and failures and a lot of aviation history, buy this book.
