About the Author

Coming from a long line of authors (including George Mellinger, who wrote several bestselling Osprey titles) that belonged to the Twin Cities Aero Historians organisation, John Stanaway has written more than 20 books and scores of articles. John is a USAF veteran with an Arc Light temporary duty assignment to his name from the Vietnam War. Chris Davey has illustrated more than 30 titles for Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces, Combat Aircraft, and Aviation Elite Units series. He is one of the last traditional airbrush artists in the business and has become Osprey's artist of choice for both USAAF fighters and RAF subject matter, proving his undoubted skill when dealing with large aircraft subjects such as the Halifax and Sunderland.


"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) "...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, (August 2014)
