When the United States entered WWII it was ill prepared to meet the threat posed by Axis air forces equipped with modern fighting aircraft. That all changed as the American war machine rapidly geared up for the conflict and US aerospace companies rushed to develop and ready for service a range of state-of-the-art warplanes. Three fighters stand out as pivotal in helping turn the tide to the Allies' advantage - the legendary twin-boom Lightning, the massive Thunderbolt and enormously successful Mustang. This second volume in the Air Combat Legends series examines the development, service record, combat action, operators, missionsand weapons of these great aircraft. Superbly illustrated throughout, this is a 'must-have' volume for those who want the inside stories on the fighters that helped America win the war.
