Writer and photographer O'Leary offers extensive details and plenty of archival photographs in his book on the P-51 Mustang, likely the most famous and popular fighter plane of World War II. The author begins with the creation of the first prototype and initial production, its versions and variants, and the people and places involved in its development. Considering that the author describes everything from wiring harnesses to machine gun installations, the book will interest readers with a general interest in aviation as well as the most dedicated P-51 fans.
