804714/22 - THE FIGHT FOR THE SKIES: Allied Fighter Action in Europe and North Africa 1939-1945


By Roger A Freeman

The fighter pilot's glamorous image disguised the fact many WWII airmen never saw an enemy plane -- and those who did had a high casualty rate. Success often depended on position, surprise, and technical advantage. Using a large selection of rare photographs, the distinguished author of The Mighty Eighth dispels the inaccuracies fostered by wartime propaganda. Follow the air events of the blitzkrieg; cross-channel operations of the British; clashes in the Middle East; the English/American invasion of northwest Africa -- and more.

Good condition.
