P-40 Warhawk Aces of the Pacific by Carl Molesworth

Book Description

The first USAAF fighters to engage the Japanese in World War 2, a handful of P-40s rose to defend Pearl Harbor from attack on the morning of 7 December 1941. Warhawk units were also heavily involved in the ill-fated fight to stem invading Japanese forces in the Philippines and Java between December 1941 and April 1942 and again in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands between January 1943 and March 1944. This book examines The Warhawk's wartime exploits and all of its aces including 'aces-in-a-day' Mel Wheadon and Joe Lesika.

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.
