P-61 Black Widow Units of World War 2
The P-61 Black Widow is one of the most interesting aircraft of WWII. Although it did not serve in great numbers, this technologically advanced aircraft had a pioneering role as a night fighter using radar and heavy armament to intercept enemy planes.
The book is divided into chapters, covering the Black Widow's service in Europe, Mediterranean theaters. A capter is devoted to the Pacific, and also one to CBI theater.
The book has an appendix of P-61 victories, units and specifications of the different variants. Illustrated with many wartime photographs, the book also includes an extensive color plate and aircraft profile section.
