In the years prior to World War One, George Holt Thomas was an active supporter of aviation development and a tireless promoter of its military potential. The pace of development saw him employing a young and talented aircraft designer by the name of Geoffrey de Havilland, and the aircraft they produced went on to make history.

In this fine addition to the Crowood Aviation Series, Mick Davis tells the full story of Airco, the Aircraft Manufacturing Company, and of its superb range of products including the D.H.4 and D.H.9a designs. Fully illustrated with a fine selection of photographs, it should form an essential part of any World War One enthusiasts library.
