Riassunto: NOTE: Updated Second Edition scheduled for mid-2014.
This landmark book by former Air Force pilot and internationally-known aviation author Walt Shiel, provides the complete and rarely-told story of the 12,000+ Cessna aircraft that have served in the US military and in armed forces around the world. Cessna Warbirds blends hard technical information about each aircraft with personal anecdotes by the pilots who flew them. Over 400 photos, many in color, illustrate the aircraft and their operational use. Read about amazing feats accomplished by ordinary men with extraordinary courage when these aircraft were flown in hot conflicts around the world. This book is perfect for anyone who has flown military aircraft, is interested in military aviation, owns of flies Cessna aircraft, or experiences a military Walter Mitty episode whenever they take to the skies.
Dall'editore: Dave Menard of the National Museum of the US Air Force, noted that "[This] book on military Cessnas is going on the reference shelf for sure!"
General Aviation News & Flyer (September 27, 1996) called Cessna Warbirds "a comprehensive, fact-filled and readable account."
Oklahoma Aviator (February 1996) declared, "No warbird enthusiast’s library is complete without this awesome history of Cessna warbirds."
Kirsten Tedesco, Deputy Director/Curator of Collections, Pima Air & Space Museum, said, "Cessna Warbirds fills a void in aviation literature. Walt Shiel’s attention to detail and foreign usage as well as domestic, is much appreciated by researchers and historians."
Gerald Knox Bishop, Curator, Frontiers of Flight Museum, said, "[The] depth of material is truly outstanding, covering a great many 'nooks & crannies' not often seen by professional historians, let alone the general public."
