9 x 12, 220 color & b&w photos 30 color profiles Of the primary fighter types used by the USA in the European Theatre of Operations in the World War II, the P-51 Mustang became the principle escort for heavy bombers. There were more than 1,700 in service by the end of hostilities, the majority with the 14 fighter groups of the Eighth Air Force, and it is the dicor of these units' Mustangs with which this book is primarily concerned. Roger Freeman provides not only a valuable reference source for artists and modelers, but also aids the identification of aircraft in photographs. The photographs reproduced in this study have for the most part been selected to show particular markings in detail, and in the case of the P-51 Mustang, the variety of schemes is considerable. The book also reproduces a selection of combat reports from leading Mustang pilots. Author Roger Freeman has written the definitive history of the US Eighth Air Force and is one of the most respected names in aviation literature.
