Nice book Kutscha. Its just a little pricy for me at this time.

Sir, if you have opened this thread for a listing of all the great

aircraft books then I will try to list a few that are invaluable.

 

America's Hundred Thousand by Francis H. Dean.

     You will not find another book at this time that covers everything you

could possibly want to know about the fighter aircraft produced in the

USA during WW2...PERIOD! Francis has many graphs for each aircraft

showing their speed, climb, roll rate...etc. He also list production numbers

of each and every version along with their ranges, engines and complete

designs.

 

I have not finished my studies on WW2 Russian fighters by a long shot.

Just an FYI, two books that have been a great help in finding out the truth

about Russian WW2 fighters are;

Soviet Combat Aircraft of the Second World War, Vol.1 by Gorden & Khazanov

and

Soviet Air Force Fighter Colours 1941-1945 by Erik Pilawskii (This is a great

book for Soviet fighter modeling by the way.)

 

Jeff

 

PS: I forgot to mention that the Russian A/C are even more pricy than the

series of books that Kutscha mentioned. :rolleyes:
