The 362nd Fighter Group during the Battle of Normandy

En stock

It is now 70 years since the sound of engines and the crash of bombs haven’t been heard in the skies of France. After doing a lot of research and mee- ting a lot of veterans in the context of co-writing the book 50 aérodromes pour une victoire (50 airfields for victory), Philippe Trombetta launched himself into studying the American fighter groups which fought in the Normandy skies. After the first volume devoted to the 404th Fighter Group, here is the second, the 362nd Fighter Group, based at the Advanced Landing Ground at Headcorn, in Kent, then at A-12 at Lignerolle, then A-27 at Rennes.
This unit earned the most titles in the European theatre of operations, with not less than six pilots in the 9th Air Force’s top ten. In addition to the host of unpublished photographs – pilots’ portraits, shots of daily life within the Group in combat – there are plane and land vehicle profiles. Here is therefore a book which, like the previous one, should make a lot of aircraft and WWII enthusiasts happy.
A lot of USAAF photos but also of veterans, aircraft and vehicle and profiles.
