Diagrams showing air fighting techniques 1939

Set of diagrams detailing the techniques of fighter planes, taking into account their increased speed. Clatworthy shows the advantages of "dive and climb" attacks against bombers which made it harder for a bomber to defend itself with its rear gun, as well as describing the use of the "focus" in aiming on a plane with fixed machine guns. The design and tactics of fighter planes in the RAF ultimately ensured Britain's air superiority in the Second World War.
