    DescriptionDiscover the history of a classic duel as the finest American and German pilots were pitted against each other in the war-torn skies over Europe. The P-51 personified the might of the Eighth Air Force's fighter strength in the latter years of World War II. Their opposition were the pilots of the Fw 190 committed to the final, frontline defence of the Reich. Commonly known by its adversaries as the 'Butcher Bird', the Fw 190 was the scourge of its enemies, superior to all Allied fighters until the introduction of the P-51. Relive the thrill and terror of a dogfight as these two evenly matched opponents battled for supremacy.

    Review quote
    ""P-51 Mustang vs. FW 190 Europe 1943-45 "by Martin Bowman tells of the history of a classic duel as American and German pilots fought each other over Europe, offering the first in a new series to describe the design and deployment of these fighters. Any collection strong in military aircraft history will welcome the specifics on combat training, strengths and weaknesses of different fighters, and key elements of plane design." -"The Bookwatch" (February 2008) "Duel is the name of a new imprint from this legendary military history house... The key aims of this series are: to provide detailed information drawn from first-hand accounts and describe what it was like to be in combat, with the emphasis on the drama of being in the frontline of war; to explore the difference between the theoretical expectations of war and how things play out in reality; to explain the technical detail and developmental history of each weapon and combine it with the personal histories of the warriors who used them." -"Flying Models "(March 2008) "The interviews with pilots really make this book worthwhile as you get to feel how going into combat must have felt like which you wouldn't get with more technical minded manuals. Personally I thought it was a very interesting read, with first hand accounts from test pilots and combatants on how each aircraft flew in each chapter." - Andy Brazier, "Aeroscale" (October 2007) "Overall a fascinating book that looks at two of the major combatants of WWII. I'm sure there will be others in the series and I look forward to them with great anticipation. A book I can recommend to you without reservation." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com "(September 2007)
