P-47 THUNDERBOLT

 

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was the largest single-engine fighter of World War II. At first, its pilots thought the Thunderbolt would be too heavy and sluggish to be successful against the nimble Bf 109s, FW 190s, and Zeros flown by America's Axis foes. When flown by skilled pilots who understood the Thunderbolt's strengths, the mighty "Jug" was the equal of any fighter, and it packed a devastating punch. Its eight .50cal machine guns were enough to rip apart aircraft and shred trains and other ground targets. In this latter role as a ground-attack plane, the P-47 proved itself supreme.

  

P-47 Thunderbolt is a thrilling new history of this great American fighter and the pilots who flew it.. Its detailed text describes the design and development of the P-47 from the first prototypes to the final long- range P-47Ns. Illustrating the story are more than 150 color and black- and-white photographs of the many Thunderbolt variants and the markings, camouflage, and nose art they carried.

 

P-47 Thunderbolt also presents the combat and operational history of the P-47-including those flown by Britain's Royal Air Force-in World War II and in postwar US and foreign service. Author William N. Hess weaves first-person combat quotes from dozens of Thunderbolt pilots and aces into a exciting close- up look at the P-47 at war.
