A booklet (with single sheet translation of the text into English and French as needed) about a little known piece of history. In 1919 the French government gave aircraft to the emerging friendly nations in Europe, including 115 to the Czechs:  50 Spad 7s, 50 Salmson 2s, (books on some of these are also available), as well as the 15 Voisin 10s which are the subject of this publication. The last, though newly built, were obsolete designs, but all laid the foundation for a future Czech airforce. The Voisins were in use until 1921. An interesting selection of 23 photographs, and three colour profiles on the back cover, complete the contents.

GM Volume 41 Number 1
