The British designed and built the Harrier, the most successful vertical take-off-and-landing aircraft ever made. Combining state-of-the-art fighter plane technology with a helicopter's ability to land vertically, the Harrier has played an indispensable role for the RAF and Royal Navy in a number of conflicts, most famously the Falklands War. Jonathan Glancey's biography is a vividly enjoyable account of the invention of this remarkable airplane and a fitting tribute to the inspiration and determination of the men and women who created it, and the bravery of the men who flew it, often in the most dangerous conditions.
Jonathan Glancey is well known as the former architecture and design correspondent of the Guardian and Independent. He is also a steam locomotive enthusiast and pilot. A frequent broadcaster, his books include   Giants of Steam  ,  Nagaland , Spitfire, The Stor y of Architecture, and Tornado.
