P-47 Thunderbolt at War

Perhaps the most significant fighter aircraft of World War II, the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was the largest and most powerful single-engine fighter of the war, and with over 15,000 P-47s built, its production numbers topped any other American fighter.

P-47 Thunderbolt at War traces the history of the P-47, including the pioneering efforts of Alexander de Seversky and Alexander Kartveli, who designed the prototype; the features that played into the P-47s combat performance; and its wartime construction and testing.

P-47 Thunderbolt at War

The rugged Thunderbolts flew in combat across Europe, Africa, and the Pacific, as fighter, escort, and fighter bomber. They are brought to life through numerous photographs, many in full color, and through personal war stories from the men who flew them.

Affectionately known as "Jugs," P-47s may not have been the most agile fighters, but they could take a pounding and get back home--an attribute worthy of any pilots affection.

P-47 Thunderbolt at War includes personal war stories of fighter-plane combat in Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific; tales of the aircraft's postwar adventures in China, Algeria, and South America in the 1950s; and a number of Republic P-47 Thunderbolt specifications charts and diagrams.


127 pages w/index, softbound, 8.25 x 10.75, b&w and color photographs.
