Aces of the Mighty Eighth by Jerry Scutts

Book Description

The three most distinguished and best known US fighter aircraft of World War II were undoubtedly the P-38, the P-51 and the P-47. This title assesses the relative strengths and weaknesses of each legendary aircraft, and uncovers the personalities and achievements of their greatest "ace" pilots. The daylight raids on the Third Reich, when the P-51 pilots went head to head with the cream of the Luftwaffe; the less-celebrated yet equally outstanding exploits of the P-38 over Germany's heartland and the evolving combat tactics that enabled the heavy P-47 to hold its own against more nimble German opponents are all detailed in this volume.
