Description

Fulfilled by our friends at Schiffer Publishing

This first of two volumes presents the P-38 story by focusing on the early models of this historic fighter—XP-38 through P-38H. Each type is examined through carefully researched archival photos, as well as photographs of currently preserved examples. Known to the enemy during World War II as the "Fork-tailed devil," the Lockheed P-38 Lightning was piloted by those who were charged with the responsibility of escorting American bombers deep over heavily defended Europe during the early years of the air campaign against Nazi Germany. Detailed text and captions illustrate not only the design and construction of the early-war Lightnings, but also their combat use in WWII. Large, clear photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, put the reader on the airfield and in the sky with this historic aircraft. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.[AuthorName]By David Doyle[/AuthorName][AuthorBio]Author of more than 100 books, David Doyle's aviation books are noted for their thorough coverage of historic aircraft and his celebrated ability to locate scarce vintage imagery.[/AuthorBio][NumIllustration]152 color and b/w photos[/NumIllustration][CoAuthor][/CoAuthor][SubTitle]Lockheed’s XP-38 to P-38H in World War II[/SubTitle][ColorPattern]152 color and b/w photos[/ColorPattern]
