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 aeroplane 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderfully entertaining book, a rich mixture of science, social history and politics written with the verve, expertise and infectious enthusiasm we have come to expect from Glancey. Unlike the politicians and the MoD, this man knows what he is doing. -- Patrick Bishop * Sunday Telegraph *
Takes you on a vivid tour through the history of the aircraft and the men and women who created and flew it. * Daily Express *
Honestly and passionately told, this is a powerful tribute to the ingenuity of the Harrier's creators and the courage and skill of those who flew it * Good Book Guide *
