Signed by Bud Anderson & 1 other 357th Ace- 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. Unquestionably the best American fighter of World War 2, the North American P-51 Mustang served in large numbers with the USAAF’s Eighth Air Force from late 1943 until VE Day, and was the mount of most aces in-theatre. Charged with the responsibility of escorting huge formations of B-17 Flying Fortress and B-24 Liberator bombers on daylight raids deep into Germany, the P-51 pilots of the various fighter groups within the ’Mighty Eighth’ went head to head with the cream of the Luftwaffe’s fighter squadrons for control of the skies over the Third Reich.
