P-40 Warhawk Aces of the CBI by Carl Molesworth

Book Description

This volume examines the colourful experiences of the elite pilots of the AAF's Tenth and Fourteenth Air Forces in the "forgotten" China-Burma-India theatre during World War II. Inheriting the legacy of the American Volunteer Group (AVG), units such as the 23rd FG "held the line" against overwhelming Japanese forces until the arrival of the first P-38s and P-51s in 1944. The Warhawk became synonymous with the efforts of the AAF in the CBI, being used by some 40 aces to claim five or more kills between 1942-45. This volume is the first of four to cover the exploits with the P-40 during World War II, with coverage of the AVG, Pacific and Mediterranean/North African units covered in other volumes. The book outlines the exploits of the aces, including detailed biographies and listings. There are specially commissioned 1/72-scale drawings and archival photographs.

Curtiss P-40 by Carl Molesworth Curtiss P-40, Paperback (November 2013)

An improved version of the Allison V-1710 engine gave rise to the Curtiss H-87, which began life in 1941 as the P-40D and featured a completely redesigned fuselage. The shorter and deeper nose of the new fighter gave it a decidedly snub-nosed appearance compared to the earlier P-40 models. This title deals with this engine.

P-40 Warhawk Vs. Bf 109 by Carl Molesworth P-40 Warhawk Vs. Bf 109, Paperback (August 2011)

"P-40 Warhawk Vs. Bf 109: Mto 1941-43".

23rd Fighter Group by Carl Molesworth 23rd Fighter Group, Paperback (May 2009)

Famous for the fearsome sharksmouths that adorned their planes, the 23rd FG fought a guerrilla war against the Japanese, steadily moving pilots and aircraft from one remote air base in China to another to keep the enemy off balance. By the end of the war its pilots had compiled a score of 594 aerial victories and nearly 400 ground kills.
