Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 55 : P-40 Warhawk Aces of the Pacific

The first USAAF fighters to engage the Japanese in World War 2 were a handful of P-40 Warhawks that rose to defend Pearl Harbor against the Japanese surprise attack on the morning of December 7, 1941. Warhawk units were also heavily involved in the ill-fated fight to stem the invading Japanese forces in the Philippines and Java between December 1941 and April 1942, and again in the Gilbert and Marshall Islands between January 1943 and March 1944. This book examines the Warhawk's wartime exploits and covers all of its aces including 'aces-in-a-day' Mel Wheadon and Joe Lesika. Text by Carl Molesworth with illustrations by Jim Laurier.
