P-51 Mustang: Development of the Long-Range Escort Fighter

Supported by hundreds of rare photos and superb color artwork, Ludwig then weaves a carefully crafted story around the concept of the escort fighter leading to the Mustang’s eventual appearance in the skies over Berlin in March 1944 and some remarkable conclusions.

Dumb But Lucky! Confessions of a P-51 Pilot in World War II
By Richard K. Curtis

Second Lieutenant Dick Curtis arrived in Italy in May 1944, twenty years old and part of a shipment of P-51 Mustang fighter pilots so desperately needed that they were rushed into combat with less than thirty hours of flight time in their new high-performance aircraft. Six of the twelve pilots assigned to the 52nd Fighter Group were shot down in the first two weeks. By his ninth mission, Curtis was the only one still flying. A maverick, he barely escaped court-martial with his high-flying antics. This hair-raising account captures the air war in all its split-second terror and adrenaline-pumping action.
