Category Aviation Books, Subcategory US Prop Aircraft, ISBN/Box 9780897478373, Series In Action 10222, Publisher Squadron, Author David Doyle, Format a4L, No. Pages 80, Version sb, Language English

Acclaimed author David Doyle traces the development and combat history of the twin-engine, twin-boom, Lockheed P-38 Lightning from the first flight of the XP-38 in January1939 through a succession of models, ending with the electronic-laden, two-seat P-38M. Created on the drawing boards of two of America's most notable aircraft designers - Hall Hibbard and Clarence 'Kelly' Johnson - the P-38 Lightning was the only U.S. pursuit plane to remain in continuous production throughout WWII. In the Southwestern Pacific, the P-38 served as the U.S.Army Air Force's primary long-range fighter prior to the arrival of the P-51D Mustang. Top American air aces and Medal-of-Honor winners Richard Bong and Thomas McGuire both flew Lightnings, and it was a P-38 that brought down Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's plane in April 1943. The Lightning saw service in Europe too, and it was after flying a P-38 to assess the progress of the Normandy Invasion in 1944, that U.S. Lt. Gen. Jimmy Doolittle referred to the Lightning as 'the sweetest-flying plane in the sky'. Illustrated with more than 150 period photographs, a third of them rare original color photos, plus color profiles and detailed line drawings.
