This new edition about the iconic North American P-51 Mustang includes over 170 photos, many in rare vintage color. The book also features detailed line drawings and color profiles that display the evolution of the WWII-era Mustang from the early experimental NA-73X to the final PA-48 close air support variant.

Its contrails twisting through the clouds, one fighter aircraft was able to escort America's heavy bombers from England to Berlin, and from Iwo Jima to Tokyo--the North American P-51 Mustang. Beyond bomber escort, this iconic Pursuit (later F- for fighter) aircraft was employed against ground targets using machine guns, rockets, and bombs--in fact one variant was specifically produced as a dive bomber, an Allied counterpart to Germany's famed Stuka. Including derivatives, the Mustang soldiered on in the arsenal of America and her allies into the 1980s, and was responsible for downing over 5,000 enemy aircraft. This new 80-page edition of a classic book about an iconic aircraft includes over 170 photos, one-third of which are in rare vintage color. Detailed line drawings and color profiles augment the archival images to present this new look at the Mustang, from the early experimental NA-73X to the PA-48, the final military variant.
