Eighty-One Aces of the 4th Fighter Group, Hardback Book

Eighty-One Aces of the 4th Fighter Group Hardback

Description

The 4th Fighter Group, armed with P-51s and aggressive, seasoned pilots, battled the Luftwaffe in the air and on the ground, achieving an impressive score of 1,016 German planes destroyed, the highest score of all Allied Groups.

Instrumental in achieving this record were eighty-one pilots who became aces and men whose stories are the subject of this book.

Their accounts go beyond the battles and individual victories to give a glimpse of their original motivations and their subsequent successes, failures, and often violent deaths.

The accounts are written by the author, a fellow ace, who lived with them, fought with them, and survived to tell their fascinating stories.
