the World during World War II!
Wings of War encompasses the World War II air war from late 1939 through 1945
and provides a chronological snapshot not only of famous and significant events
from the global air war, but also of other lesser-known events that are equally
thrilling and important. Over three dozen different Allied and Axis
airplanes are featured, giving you a unique experience at the controls of a
variety of World War II's famed fighters, bombers, liaison and jet airplanes

book no fan of warbirds will want to miss
