The Fight in the Clouds: The Extraordinary Combat Experience of P-51 Mustang Pilots During World War II - James P. Busha

This is one of the best books about the P-51 Mustang's combat service in the Second World War that I've yet read.  It is full of personal accounts (inclusive of official wartime combat reports) from pilots who flew the Mustang against the Luftwaffe and the Japanese in the Pacific.    The reader is liable to get a vicarious feel of being at the controls of the Mustang, be it on a bomber escort mission over Germany, braving flak while strafing an enemy airfield or troop concentration, or in the thick of a dogfight.
