The newest release in CW's groundbreaking Aircraft Pictorial series covers the early "long-nosed" versions of the Army Air Corps' P-40 Warhawk. Digging through records at the National Archives and the National Air and Space Museum, author Dana Bell has uncovered the never-before-told story of this significant fighter. This book presents a narrative that refutes much of what has long been accepted as gospel in the P-40's history, revising the narrative on the aircraft's origins and development, and explaining, for the first time in any publication, the significance and development of the mysterious P-40G.
As with previous books in the series, Aircraft Pictorial Number 5 also provides extensive detail photos of the long-nosed P-40's systems and many physical modifications. Aircraft Pictorial Number 5 will be required reading for aviation historians, restorers, and modelers.
