Brewster F2A Buffalo Aces of World War 2 Paperback
by Kari Stenman
Illustrated by Chris Davey
Part of the Aircraft of the Aces series
Although designed and built for the US Navy, the F2A fought in only one major US engagement, the battle of Midway, in which F2A pilots managed to shoot down a number of Japanese fighters.
Soon replaced by the navy, the F2A was exported to Britain, where it was nicknamed the 'Buffalo' thanks to its stubby appearance.
The British sent most of these fighters to the Far East where they were used in the defence of Singapore and Malaya.
