464 pages, well illustrated, tables, cloth, DJ, very good. 9 by 12 inches. From the DJ: "The American fighter pilot cadet was an intelligent young man in his late teens or early twenties from all walks of life, just starting his life, and often leaving his first years of college. He was selected from the cream of American youth, with admission standards much more restrictive than any other branch of the military. The hastily trained cadet became the pilot who, early in the war, flew inferior aircraft (the P-39, F2A, and F4F) against a better trained and more experienced enemy pilot who flew superior equipment. These early American pilots knowingly flew against great odds and held the line until American know-how and can do attitude allowed its massive industrial base to meet its potential. Their sacrifice allowed new pilots time to enter a training scheme that produced superior, well-trained pilots, and American industry to develop and produce superior new designs, such as the F4U, F6F, P-47, P-38, and finally, the P-51. Well-trained pilots flying superior new fighter aircraft against an enemy, losing its best pilots and unable to afford the luxury of extended training, brought about the inevitable defeat of the Axis air forces. After the war, these young men, America's 'best and brightest', took a leading place in American society and industry. This is their story. ". N° de réf. du libraire 34549
