The focus on this plane includes technical and military battle details alike, following its missions in the Twelfth Air Force and considering its tactical air involvements. Almost nothing has been written on the Twelfth Air Force fighter-bomber operations, making this focus a 'must.'
James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review (August 2012)
Author Jonathan Bernstein traces P-47 history as a strategic escort aircraft -- as well as a close air support and air interdiction platform. Bernstein chronicles significant contributions to Allied war efforts over Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO) frontlines. The author leavens his narrative with vivid, first-hand combat accounts -- metaphorically dropping readers into Jug cockpits.
