Description

Written by Tony Holmes, an aerospace editor and leading expert on aviation history, Dogfight covers four air forces, three theaters, and ten iconic fighters. This book is the complete story of head to head aerial combat in World War II. In the skies above a world at war, individual skill, technical edge, and superior tactics all determined which pilot would emerge victorious from an aerial duel.

Matching up ten aerial rivals - including Spitfires, Messerschmitts, Mustangs and Zeros - with their greatest foes, this book analyzes the histories of the machines, their pilots and tactics, with thrilling accounts of true combat. Meticulously researched digital artwork recreates the cockpits, armament, and battles of each combatant.
