{detailed description}Many aviation enthusiasts find 1942-45 one of the most dramatic and interesting periods of aviation history, as this covers the US Air Force deployment and operations in Europe in support of the Allied air war effort. Enthusiasts crave every item of information from this era, particularly photographic images. Prized above all are the extremely rare but totally genuine colour photographs of life in the Eighth Air Force.
For the air force veteran who lived through these exciting times and 'remembers in colour', most of the printed records he is offered are reproduced in black and white and are thus always slightly disappointing. Now, uniquely, these veterans have access as never before to over 400 evocative colour scenes of the years when the Eighth Air Force stationed its men and aircraft in Britain. Here are the images of personnel and weaponry on and off duty, with each and every British base fully covered through authentic period colour illustrations.
The job of collecting this wealth of magnificent colour material has been the work of one man — the only one who could have succeeded so completely. Roger Freeman has become recognized internationally as the leading historian of the Eighth Air Force and its time in Europe. His three Mighty Eighth books and related titles have sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide, and as a result he is widely consulted by veterans groups, film and television companies and fellow historians as the reliable source of information on this subject.
The Mighty Eighth in Colour presents its subject in wholly genuine colour for the first time ever and will delight everyone who has an interest in this great period of wartime history.
