P-47 Close Air Support in Europe
366th Fighter Group
Close air support of infantry and tanks was key to Allied success in WWII. Flying rugged P-47 Thunderbolts nearly at ground level - or "Angels Zero" - over northwestern Europe, the pilots of the 9th Air Force strafed and dive-bombed bridges, rail yards, supply depots, troops and tanks.

A wonderful combination of both personal and historical detail vividly recreates this lesser-known aspect of the air war in Europe. 208 pgs., 24 B&W photos, 6"x 9", hdbd.
