It's larger and better than ever, substantially revised with almost 200 additional, previously unseen World War Two color photos--more color aviation photos than have ever before appeared in one place! Mostly taken by members of "Mighty" Eighth Air Force, this wonderful selection portrays the American aircraft and their crews deployed to Britain in 1942. The daring, danger, and exhilaration of those days comes across in a uniquely personal perspective, because these fliers took photos of everything around them: their base, buddies, aircraft in action and on the ground, favorite nose art, and airfields and countryside from high above. Altogether, about 600 photos, arranged alphabetically by home base. A must-have for all military, aviation, and photography, enthusiasts.
