From bombing raids in the flak-filled skies over Germany and Japan to cargo runs above the snowy Himalayas and wheeling dogfights in nimble fighters, American aircraft contributed to victory in all theaters of World War II. Forcefully displaying the technological might of the United States, the planes of the Army Air Force struck critical blows against the enemy, and captured the hearts and imaginations of the daring young men who flew them. Written by the former aviators themselves, these riveting accounts take the reader into the cockpits of such storied and beloved warplanes as the B-17 Flying Fortress, the P-40 Kittyhawk, the P-51 Mustang, and many more.
