The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Allied Fighters offers a highly illustrated guide to Allied fighter aircraft in the European theatre during World War II. Featuring all the main models flown by the Allied air forces from 1939 to 1945, the book offers a wealth of detail, including unit markings, unit organization, numbers of aircraft flown by campaign and exhaustive specifications for each model.

The book is arranged first by country and then chronologically by campaign so that every aspect of the air war in the European theatre is covered. The guide features fighters from throughout World War II, including early models, such as the French Morane Saulnier MS.406C.1, British Hawker Hurricane Mk I and Dutch Fokker D XXI, right up to the final defeat of Germany, including the most advanced fighters of the period, such as the Soviet Lavochkin La-7, USAAF P-51K Mustang and the British Gloster Meteor Mk I.

The fighter had a variety of combat roles, and the guide features aircraft that were used for air-to-air combat (the Supermarine Spitfire), ground attack (the P-47 Thunderbolt), bomber escort (the ubiquitous P-51B Mustang), coastal defense (the Westland Whirlwind), night defense (Bristol Beaufighter) and photographic reconnaissance (the P-38 Lightning).

Packed with more than 200 color profiles and dozens of archive photographs of every major Allied fighter aircraft, The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide: Allied Fighters is an essential reference for modelers and World War II aviation enthusiasts.
