81 b/w photos, 8 pages of 1:72 detailed multi-view scale drawings. Many line drawings of various details, 32 colour profiles and schemes and a page of P-47D cockpit interior in colour; interior artwork based on manuals and photos. This publication covers the history and development of the big, safe and lethal radial-engined 'Jug', that formed the backbone of the USAF fighter squadrons, fighting from 1942 until the Mustang came in the late 1944 to lend a hand in the closing phases of WWII. The PR hype and almost scandalous circumstances of its birth are covered in detail, while the technical side gets a thorough work-out too. All versions and modifications are covered in multi-page spreads of detailed drawings and colour. As a special eye-opener a section describing the heretofore unknown operational history of the Lend-Lease 'Tandyerbolty' in Soviet service is included. Dual Czech/English text.
