A book: Fighters of World War II
This is a book I find myself coming back to every now and then. If you are into american hardware (plus the odd Spitfire) this is a must have. Written by Jeffrey L Ethell and Robert T Sand it is jam packed with mostly Sand’s colour photos and short stories about fighter pilots’ and ground crew’s life during the most hectic years in the air in ETO and MTO. Brilliant close ups and details of all the classics in USAAF: Spitfire, Mustang, Airacobra, Thunderbolt, Lightning and a few other threwn in for the sake of it. These photos show exactly what the aircraft looked like in service. 176 pages, all in colour from Lowe & B Hould publishers. As long as I have a smear of an interest in these aircraft I will keep the book.
