176 pp, oblong 8vo (8 1/2" H x 10 7/8" D). Profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photographs and art work. "(S)ome of the best and brightest of today's aviation writers are brought together to paint a vivid picture of aviation during World War II. These specially selected stories bring aerial combat to life, and give insight into the rapid development of air war technology spurred by that combat. Read in these pages how the Japanese 'Zero' - once thought invincible - was tamed, recall the heroism of Britain's famous legless ace Douglas Bader, enjoy the exploits of American P-38 pilots Dick Bong and Tom Lynch in the Pacific, and taste the glory of German Luftwaffe pilot Erich Hartmann's more than 350 air victories. Edited and introduced by Arthur H. Sanfelici, editor of 'Aviation History' Magazine, and with a foreword by noted aviation historian (and frequent contributor) Walter J. Boyne, (this book) is full of riveting vignettes that put you in the cockpit for a flight to adventure." Minor edge wear, slight waviness and two tiny dints on fore-edge of text block, two tiny scuffs on front board. Dust jacket has some areas of very light edge wrinkling, various irregular line in dentations on rear panel.
