Heads Up! - P-47D Thunderbolt vs Ki-43-II Oscar


Just got my copy of the Osprey publication "P-47D Thunderbolt vs Ki-43-II Oscar" by Michael John Claringbould and illustrated by Jim Laurier and Gareth Hector.

As the publisher says:
"Fully illustrated throughout with artwork and rare photographs, this fascinating book examines these two vastly different fighters in the New Guinea theatre, and assesses the unique geographic conditions that shaped their deployment and effectiveness."

I like it a lot. Particularly well researched and very readable. Plenty of photos and illustrations that help a lot to visualize the combat actions. Very recommended! 
Thank you Osprey for the rare complimentary copy.

I fully agree George. Claringbould's books, particularly the 'Pacific Adversaries' series, are excellent reading material. Thanks for giving it visibility to a wider Pacific airwar collector audience.

I can only agree with Michael comment on the Claringbould 's books! His books on the South Pacific war and the profiles books are certainly worth to have and to read!
