This large format collection combines illustrations that have already been published together with other newly produced ones, under a common theme. This first volume compiles illustrations corresponding to 50 Fighter Planes from all periods and nationalities, in a chronological order.

In this first volume, the compilation of illustrations has been grouped into five chapters: The First World War (1914-1918), the interwar period (1919-1939), the Second World War (1939-1945), the Cold War (1946-1989) and Contemporary Aircraft (from 1990 to the present day). In order to classify each model selected, the date of the first flight is used as a reference point, resulting in some paradoxes, such as the fact that the airplanes that took part in the first actions during the Second World War appear assigned to the interwar period, because they were designed and carried out their first flight during that period.

The majority of the illustrations originate from the "brushstrokes" (rather than the "mouses") by Luis Fresno Crespo and Julio Lopez Caeiro, outstanding illustrators, who have achieved a symbiosis so strong that it is difficult to determine which work belongs to each of them.
