Manufacturing the Legendary WWII Fighter

North American’s P-51 Mustang is one of the most fascinating aircraft of WWII, and countless books have been written about every facet of its colorful existence. However, the story of manufacturing the airplane is usually left to be covered only in the opening chapters of most P-51 books, and there has never been a major work devoted to this important aspect of the airplane’s proud history. Noted Warbird photographer, author, and Mustang specialist Michael O’Leary comprehensively tells the story through the use of original photographs, documents, and inside information about how the airplane was actually designed, built and tested. Contained in this book are more than 350 images, many of which have never been seen in any publication. This book provides readers with a vital “missing link” in the P-51 Mustang saga, and will be a valued addition to any enthusiast’s book collection. Softbound, B&W, and 239 pages.

Pros: Michael O'Leary's book on the Mustang evolution is an excellent reference for anyone interested in World War Two aircraft . It also is a great reference for those interested in the North American Aircraft company . No one book could contain every bit of data on the subject . This one fills in many gaps and has helped me in my personal study of the Mustang. I appreciated the B&W photos that obviously were from the 1940's era. Cons: No complaints here . Except it could have been 100 pages larger and more photos to add to the enjoyment . ( Humor ) Delightful book on an exciting subject . Very useful format for important data .
