Victory Roll! The American Fighter Pilot and Aircraft in World War II
William Wolf examines American fighter pilots and the role they played in the Allied WW II victory in this massive, well-researched, well-illustrated and fascinating volume. Several things jump out at you when you peruse Wolf's book. It's obvious the author has done his research. It looks like he tracked down and interviewed dozens of pilots and aces to get their input along with perusing official documents, unit histories, etc. And he has cast a pretty wide net on the subject, including, as he does, information on U.S. pilot training, combat tactics, the differing USAAF and USN combat missions in the ETO and PTO, the various fighter aircraft flown, ace races, the dicey issue of victory credits, first victories, first aces, last kills, top-scoring aces, aces in multiple aircraft, top-scoring units, aces-in-a-day, Americans in foreign service, personal markings, fighter losses, etc., etc. The appendices alone run to 30 pages! The result is a mammoth manuscript - 460+ pages in length, 600+ photos plus aircraft drawings by Rocky Gooch.
