Osprey Frontline Colour 3 : F-84 Thunderjet Units over Korea

The straightwinged F-84 traces its lineage back to the heavyweight WW2 P-47 Thunderbolt. Built as a fighter, the F-84 saw the majority of its wartime service in a bomber role. The first Thunderjets arrived in-theatre in late 1950, replacing both the F-51 Mustang and the F-80C Shooting Star. It was among the most colourful aircraft to see action in Korea, and the book features many photos from the author's extensive private collection, as well as firsthand accounts from the men who flew these machines. Specifications and a double-page cutaway complete the extensive appendices. Text by Warren Thompson with illustrations by Mike Badrocke.
