Medium Bombers Appendix

Bibliography

Encyclopaedic Works

These tend to be big books! Davilla & Soltan weighs in at 3.4kg, and the equivalent work of Grosz, Haddow & Schiemer on Austro-Hungarian aircraft still at 3.2kg. They are very informative resources, and very much worth their price if you can find them.
