Abstract:

"This colourful and compact volume provides a useful guide to some 120 aircraaft that served with the US Air Force from 1939-45. Some were pre-war aircraft that lasted only a short while into the conflict; others fought on throughout the war, undergoing great modification or even metamorphosis as a result; and finally there were aircraft developed in the course of hostilities that were just too late to play a significant part. Both combat and non-combat aircraft are covered by text detailing each type's origins, history and variants, followed by a full technical specification. Additionally, each type is illustrated in colour and with a three-view diagram, the more important types also receiving large-scale colour treatment." --Jacket flap.
