Spitfire, Mustang, Lightning, Thunderbolt in the darkest days of World War II, these legendary fighters escorted lumbering heavy bombers over enemy territory, providing protection, drawing cover, and taking on everything Germany?s Luftwaffe could throw at them.

Escort Pilot is the lavishly-illustrated celebration of these unique heroes, painstakingly researched and beautifully designed. It conjures up the lost world of these daring US, British, and other Allied pilots. Readers witness gripping, first-hand accounts of deadly dogfights over Germany, accompanied by warm, humorous personal reminiscences of life on the ground, accompanied throughout by hundreds of period photos and reproductions of vintage artifacts and keepsakes - many in full color.

Filled with engaging anecdotes, little-known fighter lore, and a wealth of fascinating and colorful details you?d expect from favorite, long-forgotten local pubs to personalized flight jacket artwork Escort Pilot is a richly evocative reminiscence of a heroic era and the larger-than-life personalities that inhabited it.
