Overview

Fighter Aces of the U.S.A. is the most complete, full-spectrum book ever published on American fighter aces, and includes dozens of aces' combat accounts, plus capsule biographies. Evolution of aircraft, tactics and armament is seen through the eyes of the 1400 elite Americans who earned the coveted title "Ace." Comprehensive revisions and updates to this new edition include the most complete statistics of American aces ever published, and is fully current to date of publication. Authoritative and compelling narrative also presents eyebrow-raising facts on enemy aces who fought Americans in all wars and theatres. Lists include names and scores, plus intriguing data on Soviet Air Force aces who battled USAF aces over Korea. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of photos, this book is a must reference for every historian and "buff's" bookshelf.
