Praise

Wings of War soars, with its concise and engrossing history of the development and deployment of a pivotal plane, an aircraft that would change the outcome of WWII. Authors David Fairbank White and Margaret Stanback White portray the action that played out in the air and behind the scenes, making for a terrifically intriguing book.”Booklist

“The authors enrich the technical details with vivid character sketches and dramatic accounts of the Battle of the Bulge…and other campaigns. Aviation buffs will cheer this high-flying saga.”Publishers Weekly

“These profiles provide new insight and human interest around the development of the iconic Mustang.”Library Journal

“Most histories of the P-51 are combat histories, focusing on the plane and its pilots in action. The author delivers that but also delves deeply into the fighter’s rocky origins and the struggle to bring the plane to production. The story of Edgar Schmued, the man who designed the P-51 and the later F-86, is fascinating and enriches the understanding of his creation. The tales of many others who brought Schmued’s dream to fruition are also revealed in detail.”WWII History Magazine


“At a critical moment in World War II, the Allies developed a fast and futuristic warplane known as the P-51 Mustang. In this fascinating book about passion and innovation, David Fairbank White and Margaret Stanback White tell the story of the visionary designer who created it and how the Mustang turned the air war and paved the way for D-Day.”—Walter Isaacson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Code Breaker and The Innovators
