This book covers the P/F-51 Mustang and each of its many variants and spinoffs
including the A-36 Apache, F-6 Photo Mustang, F-82 Twin Mustang and
others. It discusses the Mustangs used by all US allies and friends in many
foreign air forces. Also, it adds to the story of its creation through the wise
choices made by the British government and its Royal Air Force, especially
the transition from its original Alison V-12 to the wizard-like Rolls-Royce V-
12 called the Merlin.
The book will be profusely illustrated with high quality mono and colour
images, many of which have not been published before, and features
beautifully drawn profiles and numerous appendices. It also features numerous
first-hand accounts of the Mustang in battle during World War 2, the Korean
War and other conflicts. The Mustang was employed by more than 55 nations
during its military lifetime and this book is a definitive work on this fabulous
