Format: Paperback
The Boeing P-26 "Peashooter" was the first all metal, low wing monoplane fighter to see service with the U.S. Army Air Corps, entering service in December 1933. Larry Davis does a good job describing this fighter in "P-26 Mini in Action." Although the "Mini" publication is short (totaling 50 pages) it describes the development of the P-26 prototypes, technical development of the P-26A, B, and C production versions, and the operational history of the fighter. The aircraft saw combat with the Philippines air force, for example, against the Japanese in December 1941. The book is packed with photographs, a three-view line drawing, two pages of color plates, and illustrations detailing the different versions. Overall if you are interested in this early monoplane fighter than this book is a good buy.

The book is concise and fully illustrated. the pictures are very good and the color drawings are good. the only fault I found and that may have been my fault, was that i could not find where exactly the machineguns were. the text says they arein the lower side of the forward fuselage firing through the propeller arc. but I cannot find the barrels or even the gun ports. again the book is an excellent one for the subject and my complaint might just be me. I would recomend it to anyone.
