Attack Aircraft of the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps
About the Book:
Attack aircraft of the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps covers the history of the U. S. Navy’s attack category of carrier-based aircraft from its very inception, shortly after the end of World War II, through the present day. It follows on the heels of three prior Detail & Scale books that present a historical look at the U. S. Navy’s carrier-based aircraft over the last 80 years. U. S. Navy and Marine Carrier-Based Aircraft of World War II covered every carrier-based fighter, scout/dive bomber, and torpedo bomber design that the Navy and Marine Corps brought to at least the flying prototype stage during the war. It was followed by two books that covered Navy jet fighter aviation history. Jet Fighters of the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps, Part 1: the First Ten Years and Jet Fighters of the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps, Part 2: Mach 1 and Beyond brought the reader up to the present day covering both fighters and the multi-role fighter/attack aircraft flown by the two services.
