"Vought F4U Corsair" is the story of the "bent wing bird", one of the best known of all American military aircraft. From dominance in the Pacific in World War II to important carrier operations in the Korean War, and service with the US Navy, Royal Navy, RNZAF and French Navy, the Corsair played a pivotal and invaluable role in Allied warfare. Martin Bowman combines technical information and detailed development history with a fascinating combat history told, in many cases, by World War II pilots themselves.
