The F-4 Phantom II became the most important fighter-bomber with all three American services during the Vietnam War, but it was essentially a US Navy design and pioneered the employment of long-range, radar guided missiles in combat. It remains the subject of enduring interest to aviation enthusiasts, historians and modellers.
Peter E Davies has published 26 books concentrating on modern combat aircraft and the Vietnam War. He has written 13 previous Osprey titles and co-authored two others. Three of these have concentrated on the US Navy's use of the F-4 Phantom II and another of his books is still selling 14 years after publication. All his books on this topic have contained extensive input from interviews with more than 100 former US Navy Phantom II aircrew, maintainers and mission planners. Jim Laurier is a native of New England, growing up in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He has been drawing since he could hold a pencil and has worked in many mediums creating artwork on a variety of subjects. He has worked on the Osprey Aviation list since 2000 and in that time he has produced some of the finest artwork seen in these volumes. Gareth Hector is a digital artist of international standing as well as an aviation history enthusiast. Gareth completed the battlescene artwork and cover artwork.
