P-40's and P-47's of the 79th and 86th Fighter Groups, up the Italian boot and into France and Germany: strafing, dive bombing, train busting, and generally raising havoc with the Germans, in support of the U.S. Fifth and Seventh Armies. Major Colgan takes us along, relating not only the fear and exhileration of this most dangerous work, but also a primer on the finer points of strafing and other skills of the trade. Many photos of the planes, and results.
