P-51D Mustang American Aces
Series: Spotlight ON
Publisher: MMP Books (Poland)
Brand new book in “Spotlight ON” series is P-51D Mustang American Aces.
Author and illustrator is from Poland – Artur Juszczak.
This fantastic reference book contains 45 pages, printed on glossy paper, format A4, hardback. Publication presents detailed illustrations of the North American P-51D Mustang fighters flown by famous American aces of World War II and contains 40 full color, highly detailed individual profiles with comprehensive captions, color & b&w illustrations. Color profiles are surely one of the best I’ve seen lately in similar publications.
As a bonus, the book offers an exclusive one fold-out color profile 76cm (30 inches) long, of P-51D flown by Capt. Ray S. Wetmore, which is a very nice addition.
The ‘Aces’ include the most famous and some lesser-known names, such as: Maj. George E. Preddy Jr; Capt. John J. Voll; Lt. Col. John C. Meyer; Maj. Leonard K. Carson; Maj. Glenn T. Eagleston; Maj. John B. England.
Some useful illustrations are also included in this book which will surely help to modellers to achieve realistic finish of his model.
To learn something new from aviation history or to use as a reference in your hobby, this book is definitely, one of those publications (for the really reasonable price considering quality and effort of the author invested in this book) that you’ll want to keep on your shelf for future reference.
