From the Publisher
World War II saw the perfection of the piston engined fighter and the emergence of the fighter pilot as modern warfare's glamorous elite. From the Battle of Britain to the last duels over defeated Japan, armadas of high performance aircraft shaped history in single combat. In the skies above a world at war, individual skill, technical edge and superior tactics all determined which pilot would emerge victorious from an aerial duel. Dogfight is a head to head history of the greatest fighters of the war. Matching up ten aerial rivals - including Spitfires, Messerschmitts, Mustangs and Zeros - with their greatest foes, Dogfight analyzes the histories of the machines, their pilots and tactics, with thrilling accounts of true combat. Meticulously researched digital artwork recreates the cockpits, armament, and battles of each combatant. Covering four air forces, three theatres, and ten iconic fighters, Dogfight is the complete story of head to head aerial combat in World War II.
