During the waning days of WWII, a frenzied race was underway in rubble-strewn Europe as US and Soviet forces sought to seize advanced German weapons technology.
During the waning days of WWII, a frenzied race was underway in rubble-strewn Europe as US and Soviet forces sought to seize advanced German weapons technology. Over the next quarter-century, the North American Aviation (NAA) would enhance these spoils of war into fearsome weapons in America’s arsenal. There’s the swept-wing F-86 Sabre jet fighter, which would go on to be the only Allied warplane to outmaneuver a Soviet MiG-15 over Korea. X-15 rocket planes carried humans to the boundaries of space, setting speed and altitude records that still hold today. The story of these weapons and the engineers who nourished them is a fascinating look into postwar corporate history of the NAA and its impact on the United States’ aviation and space history. Hardbound, approx. 224 pages, 249 color and black and white photos.
