Lockheed's first military aircraft to go into production - the 'fork-tailed devil', twin engined Lightning - was also one of the most famous and effective American fighters of World War Two. Between 1940 and 1945, over 10,000 powerful and versatile P-38 Lightnings were built. This book documents the history of the J to L variants of the plane, from 1943 to 1944 - the most effective and widely used of the entire Lightning family. This was the aircraft that author and aviation legend Antoine de St Exupery was flying when he disappeared. * Rarely documented aspect of World War Two aviation history. * Superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings, walk-around colour photographs and rare b+w archive photographs. * Essential reading for aviation enthusiasts & scale aero-modellers.
