According to the book description of Hell Hawks! The Untold Story of the American Fliers Who Savaged Hitler's Wehrmacht, it “is the story of the band of young American fighter pilots, and their gritty, close-quarters fight against Hitlers vaunted military. The "Hell Hawks" were the men and machines of the 365th Fighter Group. Beginning just prior to D-Day, June 6, 1944, the groups young pilots (most were barely twenty years old and fresh from flight training in the United States) flew in close support of Eisenhowers ground forces as they advanced across France and into Germany. They flew the rugged, heavily armed P-47 Thunderbolt, aka the Jug. Living in tents amid the cold mud of their front-line airfields, the 365ths daily routine had much in common with that of the G.I.s they supported. Their war only stopped with the Nazi surrender on May 8, 1945. During their year in combat, the Hell Hawks paid a heavy price to win the victory. Sixty-nine pilots and airmen died in the fight across the continent. The Groups 1,241 combat missions -- the daily confrontation of sudden, violent death -- forged bonds between these men that remain strong sixty years later. This book will tell their story, the story of the Hell Hawks.”

 

According to the book description of Air Combat: A History of Fighter Pilots, “In Air Combat, veteran and military author Robert F. Dorr has collected dozens of interviews from combat veterans who have faced the enemy in the skies above-from the first days of World War II to the current war on terror. Each story offers a firsthand account of what it's like to be in the thick of the fight, describes the history, strengths, and weaknesses of each man's plane in detail, and offers readers a rare glimpse into the minds and hearts of those who dare to fight in the air.”

 

According to the book description of Chopper: A History of America Military Helicopter Operations from WWII to the War on Terror, “From its first use in military operations, during a rescue mission behind enemy lines in 1944, to its crucial role in Vietnam, to the Black Hawk combat copters in the current war on terror, the helicopter changed the face of aviation-and the face of warfare. Whether they are bringing supplies and medical help or coming to the rescue of trapped soldiers, the modern battlefield could not function without them.”

 

According to the book description of Alpha Bravo Delta Guide to the U.S. Army, “A complete overview of the U.S. Army-from the origins and complete histories to the battles and weaponry. Here are comprehensive accounts and descriptions of the battles, weaponry, and personnel, from the enlisted man to the top-ranking officers-featuring fascinating detail on the bloodiest battles, the greatest successes and most devastating setbacks, and much more.”
