Re: Looking for good P-40 books

Not sure whether you're looking for reference books or experiences, but one of the Directors of the Smithsonian Air & Space Musuem is Don Lopez, a WWII Pacific theatre ace and he started out in P-40s. He wrote his experiences in "Into the Teeth of the Tiger", including an interesting first kill. He later moved on to P-51s. Amazon shows the book for about 12 US dollars.

He also wrote "Fighter Pilots Heaven", about his expereinces post WWII getting to test all types of fighter planes and weapon systems.

Re: Looking for good P-40 books

Thank you Tony, as a matter of fact, I'm looking for both reference books or experiences, but first of all experiences. The book you mentioned sounds very interesting and I already bookmarked it for my next shooping spree

Any other suggestions? How about "A Flying Tiger's Diary" by Charles Bond - worth buying?

Thank you!

Same rare titles mentioned here, I only wish they were all available at amazon.com. I do have "Shark Squadron Pilot" by Bert Horden and I enjoyed it very much.

Re: Looking for good P-40 books

Gremlins is an excellent book. Really down to earth. I'd overlooked that one.
