No.181, THE DE HAVILLAND D.H.5

No.181 in the prolific Profile Publication pantheon, this 12 pager by Jack Bruce traces the story of the unconventional AMC DH5 with 16 archive images and a dozen separate colour art profiles on the inner covers. An ex-bound copy this is loose -leaved but bears a plastic 'spine' to hold the pages secure.One only.
Not one of the Aircraft Manufacturing Company's  finest WWI designs, the back-staggered DH5 of 1916 proved an effective 'trench strafer' . Known at the time as de Havilland's 'fifth effort' the fighter did not emulate the success of other wartime AMC aircraft yet it played a part and proved to be a fairly useful all-rounder. Despite  many operational disadvantages the DH5 was fielded by five units on the Western Front and Jack Bruce has the full story in this 1967-published monograph. This particular copy was removed form a bound set of Profile's and is thus loose-leafed but we have added a plastic 'spine' to keep the 12 pages under some measure of control...
