Very Long Range P-51 Mustang Units of the Pacific War by Carl Molesworth

Book Description

The 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.

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.
