An in-depth look at the famous North American T-6 Texan, its contributions to the Allied victory in World War II, and its subsequent uses by air forces around the world. Surviving T-6 warbirds are often the main attractions at air shows.

North American's T-6: A Definitive History of the World's Most Famous Trainer is the book the world's extensive T-6 community has been waiting years to have. Author Dan Hagedorn, Curator for the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington, combines his professional documentation skills with rare access to valuable North American archival material to write the definitive book about one of the world's most beloved World War II aircraft. The T-6 served as an advanced trainer for military pilots from more than 80 nations around the world for several decades. In addition to highly detailed documentation of every T-6 variant used by both the U.S. Army Air Corps and U.S. Navy, all foreign T-6s manufactured in America or exported overseas are listed by individual country as well. Of the nearly 16,000 T-6s built, many hundreds are still flying today as prized restored collectibles or airshow performers, giving this book a large potential readership.
