Synopsis

Synopsis

The P-38 was used on virtually every front to which the USAAF were committed, but enjoyed its greatest successes in the Pacific and China-Burma-India (CBI) theatres. The speed, range and firepower of the P-38 made it the favourite of nearly all aircrew fighting in the Solomons, New Guinea and the Philippines, and over 1800 Japanese aircraft fell to its guns. From the first encounters at the end of 1942 until the Lightning scored the final Fifth Air force victories in August 1945, these pilots made the Pacific skies very much their own battleground.

"This book is essential for anyone interested in one of the most famous aircraft of WWII, and certainly the Pacific air war. And, the stories of the pilots who flew it in combat, and the more than a hundred pilots who became aces in its cockpit." -www.pacificwrecks.com
