Description

The North American P-51 Mustang, America's greatest fighter aircraft, was actually designed, built and flown in 117 days. Its predecessors, including the Curtiss P-40 and the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, were useful aircraft but were neither fast enough nor manoeuvrable enough to challenge the Messerschmitt Bf-I09 fighter in the skies over Europe. 

 

When the Mustang was introduced in 1943 over Germany as an escort to the B-17 bomber, its role in the war was secured. The daily toll of lost Flying Fortresses was reduced as more Mustangs entered service. The P-51'smanoeuvrability and speed proved it the master of its counterparts in the Luftwaffe. 

 

The development of the P-51 during World War II is told brilliantly by William Newby Grant of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Richly illustrated with color and monochrome photographs as well as color sideviews and a full color cutaway by Mike Badrocke, this book will be a valuable addition to the library of every aviation enthusiast.
