    Great book!

    This is a really nice book talking about the experiences of the pilots of a great WW2 fighter during the course of the war. It discloses many missions and capabilities of the pilots and aircraft that isn't seen in other books on the P-38. If you're a fan of the P-38 this is a must have book.
