P-38 Lightning Aces of the ETO/MTO (Aircraft of the Aces , No 19)
by John Stanaway
Built by Lockheed to meet a USAAC requirement for a long-range, high-performance escort for the B-17 bomber, the P-38 Lightning made its combat debut in Europe in 1942. Its service in several combat theatres earned it the nickname "der gabelschwanzer teufal", or "the fork-tailed devil". Some 17 pilots scored seven or more kills in the P-38, with the top scorers, William J. Sloan and Michael Brezas, scoring 12 kills each. This volume presents archival photographs of Lightnings, scale drawings and interviews with several leading Lightning aces.

Lockheed P-38 Lightning (Osprey Production Line to Frontline 3)
by Michael O'Leary
The "Cadillac" of USAAF fighters in World War II, the Lightning was a highly innovative design produced by Lockheed of Burbank, California, in response to a challenging requirement for a long range, high speed and high altitude fighter to escort the AAFs rapidly expanding B-17 bomber fleet. To meet the criterion laid down in this requirement the company adopted a revolutionary twin boom layout and supercharged Allison engines. This volume uses the best archival material available sourced directly from Lockheed themselves, and illustrates all the major prototype, pre-production and frontline variants under construction at the famous Burbank, California, plant during WWII.
