192 pp, 10 5/8" H. "(T)he first complete narrative and photographic history of the top US fighter group in Europe during World War II: the 56th Fighter Group. Nicknamed Zemke's Wolfpack after their brilliant leader Hubert ('Hub') Zemke, the 56th flew their massive red-nosed P-47 Thunderbolts to glory, shooting down 664.5 German aircraft. And though it was only one of fifteen figher groups in the Eight Air Force, the Wolfpack included five of the top ten American aces in the Mighty Eighth, including the number one and two aces: Francis ("Gabby") Gabreski and Robert S. Johnson. (This) is a mission-by-mission chronicle of all the Wolfpack's great air battles, all the victories, and all the losses. Also included are more than 200 photographs showing the 56th's pilots and their P-47 Thunderbolts with all the group's unique nose art and markings. And a detailed appendix lists all the group's aces, every confirmed victory, all the combat commanders, Distinguished Service Cross winners, and group markings." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
