To most people, Louis Blériot was simply the Frenchman who was the first person to fly the Channel in a heavier-than-air craft. In fact Blériot’s connections with Britain stretched over 25 years. For the first time, Ray Sanger tells the full story of Blériot in Britain, covering not only his life and his various enterprises, but even the histories of all the Blériots built or flown here. The distinctive Blériot monoplanes were widely used for training and sports before World War One and then saw extensive war service. Special features include scale plans and photo captions in English and French. The book includes 8 pages of colour photographs (31 images) plus 360 monochrome images including photos, advertising and three-view drawings.
