Samenvatting

Formed in October 1943, the 479th FG claimed an impressive history against the Luftwaffe during the final year of the war. Originally flying P-38s, the 479th's pilots had a fierce pride of arms. They earned a Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation in the late summer of 1944 and were also credited with the USAAF's first German jet kill in July 1944. Eventually transitioning to the P-51D in September 1944, the 479th excelled with the Mustang. The 479th FG was credited with scoring the last aerial victory claimed by the Eighth Air Force's VIII Fighter Command, on 25 April 1945. By VE-Day, 29 pilots flying in the group had earned "ace" status.

Recensie(s)

Author John Stanaway... tells the story of the unit from its formation until the end of the war. There are the usual pilot stories that make these books so interesting to read as well as side looks into the on-going debate as to which was the better aircraft, the Mustang or the Lightning. The results are interesting to say the least. As in other Osprey Aviation Elite Units books, there is a large center section of color profiles and the usual excellent period photographs of the men and their aircraft.It makes for a superb addition to your aviation library and one that I know you will fully enjoy reading. --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (August 2009)
