   Although far better known for their exploits over the war-torn skies of Germany and Italy, the USAAF's premier fighters, the P-47 and P-51, also made significant contributions to the victory against Japan from 1943 onwards. They saw action from 0009646

Once again Osprey Books delivers in their series of books on Fighter Aces and the planes that they flew. This book covers a much overlooked area of aviation history dealing with P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs in  the CBI and the Pacific Theaters. The First hand accounts from the pilots in the book are also excellent. This  book gives these gentlemen their due. It is a great book and I recommend it highly. I look forward to more books by John Stanaway. How about doing one on the P-40 Aces of the Pacific and the CBI. 

First Sentence:
As briefly mentioned in the introduction to this book, Republic's P-47 Thunderbolt never won easy acceptance into combat in the Southwest Pacific theatre due to the spirited opposition provided by the primary Japanese Army and Navy fighters of the day, namely the Nakajima Ki-43 'Oscar' and the Mitsubishi A6M Zero.

From the Publisher
Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series combines full colour artwork, the best archival contemporary photography, and first hand accounts from aces to bring history's greatest airborne conflicts to life.
