Very Long Range P-51 Mustang Units of the Pacific War by Carl Molesworth
Book DescriptionThe pilots called themselves the Tokyo Club. It was a simple task to become a member. All you had to do was strap yourself into a heavily loaded P-51 Mustang, take off from Iwo Jima, fly 650 miles north over the sea often through monsoon storms in your single-engined aircraft to Japan, attack a heavily defended target and then turn around and fly home despite a shrinking fuel supply and perhaps battle damage as well. Do it once and you earned membership in the club. Do it 15 times and you earned a trip home. But make one mistake or have one touch of bad luck, and you had a very good chance of ending up dead. This book will tell the little-known story of these brave men and their efforts to defeat the aerial forces defending Japan.

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.
