Knights of the Air is the story of the men who spent their youth designing and building England's first flying-machines: the men who pioneered the British aircraft industry. Some of their aircraft have achieved immortality-the legendary Pup, Camel, Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster. But of the men who designed and built them, men like Frederick Handley Page, Tommy Sopwith, George Holt Thomas and Geoffrey de Havilland, perhaps only Rolls and Royce are still household names.
