Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covers the most famous air engagements in WWII's Pacific Theater of Operation in an exquisite and beautiful fusion of art and history. Paintings of acclaimed aviation artist Jack Fellows are supplemented by color maps, previously unpublished photographs, original artwork, and personal accounts. Climb in to the cockpit of some of America's most heralded war birds: the P-38 that carried Richard Bong to his 40 kills and fly along with Paul Tibitts in the "Enola Gay" as it makes its final approach on Hiroshima.
