"...a book that I very much enjoyed reading and is one that I can highly recommend to the P-38 fan out there." --Scott van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (August 2014)

"John Stanaway's [book] considers the story of the ace pilots of the P-38 Lightning, one of the most unique air fighters of World War 2, and is a recommendation for any aircraft or military history library. It uses first-hand experiences from pilots who flew them to consider their combat performance and how techniques developed by these fighters changed the course of the war.' - James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review (October 2014)

Lightning Tales! 30. Juli 2014
Von Michael OConnor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Thus far Osprey has covered the exploits of P-38 aces/units in a number of titles: P-38 LIGHTNING ACES OF THE PACIFIC AND CBI, P-38 LIGHTNING ACES OF THE ETO/MTO, P-38 ACES OF THE 82ND FIGHTER GROUP, 475TH FIGHTER GROUP, etc. John Stanaway recounts the P-38 aces story but in a chronological narrative in P-38 LIGHTNING ACES, 1942-43. A 2014 Osprey release, Stanaway's book is #120 in their AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES series.

After a brief introduction to 'Lockheed's Hot Rod,' Stanway relates P-38 combat ops in the Pacific, CBI, MTO and ETO. When flown by skilled pilots like Danny Roberts, Murray Shubin, Dick Bong, John Mitchell, Bob Westbrook, John O'Neill, Bill Sloan, Jack Ilfrey and Tom McGuire, the P-38 spelled trouble for their German, Japanese and Italian opponents as borne out by Stanaway's exciting narative. The text is complimented by dozens of photographs of pilots and Lightnings along with 13 pages of gorgeous color profiles including three pages of P-38 nose art by Chris Davey.

Since the P-38 story has been told many times, much of the material and pix in P-38 LIGHTNING ACES, 1942-43 will be familiar to long-time Lightning buffs. However, as a stand-alone chronicle of early-war P-38 ops, Stanaway's book makes for entertaining reading. Recommended.

The dawn of the P-38 2. September 2014
Von Marco De Montis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The OSPREY's AIRCRAF OF THE ACES series has now reached the 120th title and is more lively than ever.
Since the beginning Author Peter Stanaway hits the target of telling a very interesting and faceted story.
He underlines the high value of innovation enclosed in the P-38 LIGHTNING and its qualities, particularly the incredible range and the highly destructive power of its armament. The book treats the P-38's American aces fighting since the beginning to 1943 in all operational theatres, during which they operated the E, F, G and H variants.
Notwithstanding some teething troubles of these models, 60 USAAF pilots (including the "legends of the air" Tom Mc Guire and Dick Bong) became aces, courtesy to the "fork tailed devil".
The chapters are developing through the years, starting from the Pacific TO, tracing the hard fighting in the skies of Rabaul, Guadalcanal and New Guinea. Very well written is the chapter devoted to the bold "Vengeance" operation, the interception and downing of the Japanese plane that was carrying Adm. Yamamoto.
The P-38 saw other first line fighting in Burma, China and India and also here was successful, even against the effective Nakajima Ki-44 "Tojo".
However the North Africa and Mediterranean fronts were quite problematic.
There the USAAF pilots had to fight against the well trained and resolute Italian and German pilots, particularly the veteran ones at the controls of the superb Italian MC.202s and German Bf. 109Gs. For this reason the USAAF's victories were mainly based on the slow and vulnerable Junkers Ju.87 Stuka dive bombers.
A not so known and peculiar anecdote told by the Author is that the turbocharged Allison engines of the P-38 induced false victories reports: due to the vigorous backfires after a full throttle acceleration, the P-38 left dense and black trail of smokes and flames, very deceptive for an hit target.
The last chapter describes the P-38 debut in the "Mighty 8th" ranks. This was the most critical theatre, not only for the ability of the Lufwaffe's "Experten" pilots but especially for the ineffective USAAF tactics, quickly revised on the basis of the disappointing results.
A wonderful integration to the book is the collection of the Davey's profiles.
These 30 work of art and the related nose arts are all drawn with the aerograph (Davey is one of the last artists still linked to this beautiful and skill requiring technique), a technique perfectly suited to the WW II camouflages.

Von KOMET - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For any aviation enthusiast - especially one who is a fan of the P-38 Lightning as I am - this is a book that provides a rich and compelling account of the airplane's combat record in the Pacific, the China-Burma-India Theater, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Northern Europe during 1942 and 1943. What's more: the photos and art work are top quality and show the P-38 to fine effect. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK.
