Details

With its distinctive twin-tailed design the P-38 was one of the most recognizable fighter aircraft of World War II. It was also one of the best. The perfect balance of speed firepower and range it made a formable opponent during the crucial battles for the Solomon Islands and New Guinea. In response the Japanese worked with the Germans to develop the Ki-61 a heavy air superiority fighter with an impressive array of firepower. In head-to-head match-ups the P-38 proved the superior fighter but individual duels often came down to the ability and experience of the individual pilots. This book recreates these fast deadly duels in the skies of the Pacific using dramatic artwork and first-hand accounts.
