Description:
New book, 80 pages, SS10222. Acclaimed author David Doyle traces the development and combat history of the twin-engine, twin-boom, Lockheed P-38 Lightning from the first flight of the XP-38 in January1939 through a succession of models, ending with the electronic-laden, two-seat P-38M. Created on the drawing boards of two of America's most notable aircraft designers - Hall Hibbard and Clarence 'Kelly' Johnson - the P-38 Lightning was the only U.S. pursuit plane to remain in continuous production throughout WWII. In the Southwestern Pacific, the P-38 served as the U.S.Army Air Force's primary long-range fighter prior to the arrival of the P-51D Mustang. Top American air aces and Medal-of-Honor winners Richard Bong and Thomas McGuire both flew Lightnings, and it was a P-38 that brought down Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's plane in April 1943. The Lightning saw service in Europe too, and it was after flying a P-38 to assess the progress of the Normandy Invasion in 1944, that U.S. Lt. Gen. Jimmy Doolittle referred to the Lightning as 'the sweetest-flying plane in the sky'. Illustrated with more than 150 period photographs, a third of them rare original color photos, plus color profiles and detailed line drawings.
