Mustang Aces of the Eighth Air Force

By (author) Scutts, Jerry; Illustrated by Davey, Chris

Unquestionably the best American fighter of World War 2, the North American P-51 Mustang served in large numbers with the USAAF's Eighth Air Force from late 1943 until VE Day, and was the mount of most aces in-theatre. Charged with the responsibility of escorting huge formations of B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator bombers on daylight raids deep into Germany, the P-51 pilots of the various fighter groups within the 'Mighty Eighth' went head to head with the cream of the Luftwaffe's fighter squadrons for control of the skies over the Third Reich. "Aircraft of the Aces 1, 19 and 24" are also available in a single volume as "Aces of the Mighty Eighth".
