Vaccari, Vignola, Italy, new ed., 2010. 297 pp., numerous photo-ills., + ills., some cold. Photo-boards ; 21 x 24cm. FINE. The most significant milestones in the development of Italian bomber aircraft are told and illustrated here through many images which are mostly previously unpublished. It is a celebration of Gianni Caproni, the foresighted constructor of those early wings, synonymous with “strategic bombing”. The text and the original structure of the work, first published in 1970, have been partly reworked or modified in this new edition, with the addition of some new sections, such as an English translation alongside the Italian text, the replacement of many illustrations, updated captions, and a colour photographic appendix. This study was based on documents and photographic material provided by the Caproni family.
