P-39 AIRACOBRA ACES OF WORLD WAR 2
The P-39 Airacobra was the first mid-engined American fighter to see frontline service. Fitted with a tricycle undercarriage, the P-39 served alongside the P-38 Lightning and P-40 Warhawk in the bitter struggle to capture Guadalcanal in 1942–43, as well as seeing action over the jungles of New Guinea. This book recounts the exploits of the elite USAAF pilots who achieved ace status while flying the much-maligned Bell fighter.
