USAAF Fighter Stories: Dramatic Accounts of US Fighter Pilots in Training and Combat Over Europe in the Second World War

USAAF Fighter Stories: Dramatic Accounts of US Fighter Pilots in Training and Combat Over Europe in the Second World War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ian McLachlan presents a compelling collection of true-life accounts by USAAF fighter pilots flying from England during the Second World War. Some are the result of detailed post-war research by the author into aircraft crash sites; others are the memories of those who were lucky enough to survive the war; some are stories gleaned from the letters written home to loved ones by pilots who were destined not to survive the war. Each story is supported by a unique selection of personal and combat photographs.

About the Author

Ian McLachlan is an aviation archaeologist, historian and author of a number of books about the USAAF in the Second World War, including Eighth Air Force Bomber Stories, Night of the Intruders and Final Flights. He lives in Suffolk.
