Flying makes History

This is a very, very heavily illustrated magnificent soft-cover magazine-style book completely devoted to flight.

Documenting the early history of aviation right up to the brink of WWII. From the legendary flight of Icarus to the Ju-87.
This has to be the most complete story of airplanes and airmen ever produced in a single pictorial volume.
The photos and illustrations are magnificent. The coverage of early experimental flight is vastly interesting.
There are aircraft, zeppelins, war flyers, parachutists, seaplanes, Pour le Mérite flyers, and bombing missions.

Many advertisements for the various companies that made aircraft are particularly interesting:
BMW, Dornier, Daimler-Benz, Junkers, Focke-Wulf, and Arado.

There are all the famous faces involved in aviation shown:
Hans Bauer Christiansen, Willi Messerschmitt, Carl Dornier, and in earlier times, Wilbur Wright,
Otto Lilienthal, Richthofen, Graf Zeppelin, Udet, Loezer, Boelcke, Ritter von Schleich, etc.
