“Highly recommended!”
- Rachel E. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com

“A flavor of the aircraft, pilots and tactics used in World War II duels over the Pacific…a detailed look at one unit, Fighter Squadron Nine (VF-9), that flew Wildcats against the Vichy French in North Africa and then, equipped with F6F Hellcats, became a scourge in the Pacific, claim- ing 250 Japanese aircraft, resulting in 20 VF-9 aces.” –Seapower Magazine

“In this latest book on aces from Osprey, we get a look at the history of VF-9, their conversion to the Hellcat and a look at all of the various actions in which the unit was involved during their three combat cruises; two of which were with the Hellcat. The book is full of pilot photos and some great stories, the sort of things that make this series so popular. Add to it a goodly selection of full color profiles and you have a book that makes for a great read and reference. Pick yours up today.”
