A HIGHLY INFORMATIVE STORY OF ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST VERSATILE FIGHTER UNITS IN WWII

Aces of the 78th Fighter Group - Thomas Cleaver

On the whole, this is a well-written book about one of the United States Army Air Force's (USAAF) veteran fighter groups, which, between the spring of 1943 and VE-Day, established a fine combat record during the Second World War. Unique among other USAAF fighter groups in Europe, the 78th Fighter Group flew, at various times, the P-38 Lightning, the P-47 Thunderbolt, and the P-51 Mustang.  

 

There are also lots of interesting photos and color illustrations of several of the planes flown by some of the 78th Fighter Group's outstanding pilots.
