About the Author
Jerry Scutts has worked in the field of aviation publishing since the late 1960s, writing over 40 books that have covered a broad spectrum of subject matter ranging from US Navy floatplane fighters in World War 2 to the exploits of the USAF's Phantom IIs over Vietnam. His specialist areas are the Luftwaffe and the US Army Air Forces in World War 2, and he originally appeared on the Osprey list as long ago as 1977, when he wrote the second volume in the now much sought after Air Cam Air War series –- many of the jacket illustrations in this series were also painted by him. Jerry has been a regular contributor to Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series since its inception in 1994.

`Mustang aces of the 8th Air Force' is the first book Osprey published of it's long line of `Aircraft of the aces' books. In the beginning it explains about the P-51, then it explains about the aces which flew it. From England to Belgium to Italy, the P-51 fought against the German Luftwaffe and smashed it to dust. Lots of color plates and pictures throughout this book.
I was happy to read about Leonard K. Carson, Donald Blakeslee, George Preddy and more. This book has 80 pages of information on the 8th AF aces who flew one of the best American fighters of WWII. This has a spot in my library.
