    Default BRISTOL FIGHTER: Frank Barnwell’s Ubiquitous Multirole Masterpiece

    Hi All. In my role as layout artist for Cross and Cockade International, I thought this item, taken from the upcoming Spring issue, might be of interest to RAFC members since the aircraft was in service for several decades. This new book, which was years in the making, has just come out and is a wonderful tribute to the authors, only one of whom is still living - the project took that long. Below are a few notes taken from a review by Paul Hare, books editor for CCI. The volume was published in cooperation with Cross and Cockade.

    BRISTOL FIGHTER: Frank Barnwell’s Ubiquitous Multirole Masterpiece
    Ray Sturtivant, Gordon Page, James J. Halley & Philip Jarrett
    Air Britain, 472pp 210 x 297mm, hardback, illustrated ISBN 9780851305363

    This impressive book...is well set to become the definitive work on the Bristol Fighter. Its contents include detailed accounts of the type’s...operational use...with numerous air services and in many nations around the globe, in both peace and war from it conception in 1915 to its final withdrawal from service several decades later.
