Overview

This final volume in the three-volume set covering more than 300 types of Surviving World War II aircraft includes the less-glamorous ones that could not qualify for two volumes on Fighters and Bombers. They were the ones that served absolutely vital purposes like the Army's Jeeps and trucks and the Navy's freighters and landing craft. Clearly, they made the great machine work, for without the transports, trainers, gliders, helicopters, the scout airplanes, and the others, the fighters and bombers would not have had fuel for their engines, or bullets for their guns, nor food for their crews.

Their pilots, navigators, radio operators, and ground crews may not have had as many stories to tell of narrow escapes from massed enemy guns, but they knew that they played roles that can never be ignored. They wore the same uniforms and shed as many tears for their departed comrades. That scores of their aircraft have been lovingly restored to like-new condition and placed on display is a tribute to their sacrifices..
