A photographic history spanning a century of innovation in military aviation, this book features forty of America’s greatest combat aircraft from World War I and World War II to the modern era--the true warbirds. This collection captures the “greatest generation” of warbirds—the restored B-17 Flying Fortresses, B-24 Liberators, P-38 Lightnings, P-47 Thunderbolts, P-51 Mustangs, transports, trainers, bombers, and fighters—close-up at rest or flashing in action by premier air-to-air aviation photographer Max Haynes. Each of the 250 photographs—200 in color—is accompanied by detailed information on the pictured aircraft, its pilot, crew, and unique history, making this volume the ultimate resource on combat aircraft in the twentieth century.
