P-40 Warhawk vs Ki-43 Oscar by Carl Molesworth
Book DescriptionKnown for the distinctive "sharkmouths" decoration on their noses, P-40 fighters first saw combat in China during World War II.Their most common adversary was the Japanese Nakajima Ki-43, nicknamed "Oscar." Carl Molesworth describes and explains the design and development of these two foes, the products of two vastly different philosophies of fighter design. The P-40 was heavily armed and sturdy with armor protection and self-sealing fuel tanks, but paid for this with the loss of speed and a sluggish performance at altitude. The Ki-43 was a rapier to the battleaxe P-40 and the Ki-43 was immensely nimble, though with less firepower and durability. This book examines these two different fighters, and the pilots who flew them over China, with an action-packed text, rare photographs and digital artwork.

Flying Tigers Colors, Paperback (April 2016)
No aircraft markings in history are more iconic than the distinctive shark's mouths applied to the noses of P-40s and P-51s flown by the AVG and 23rd FG in the skies over Asia during World War II. This book covers not only the camouflage and markings of the fighters they flew but also the combat history of these legendary units.
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.
