History of the 357th Fighter Group, Eighth Air Force, a P-51 outfit that fought over Europe for 1 ½ years. Won two Unit Citations and flew on the last of the England to Russia "shuttle" missions. Second only to the 56th Fighter Group in total number of aerial victories, and produced 42 aces- Kit Carson, John England, Bud Anderson, Dick Peterson and Chuck Yeager to mention a few. Olmstead's grasp of the Mustang and its complexities will also satisfy those with a desire for technical material on this fine long range fighter. Many rare, unpublished photos, including seven original action art works by the author, a superb artist. Over 190 black/white photos, 9 pieces of art work, 2 maps, and 9 appendices including losses, victory list, aces, aircraft serials and names. 160 pages, 8.5x11 inches.
