A good friend of this site, Gregory Pons, has been kind enough to give us an exclusive look at the cover of his newest book. You may recognize his name from the books and articles on the Army Air Forces he has written in the past for a well known military magazine. He has recently switched publishers for this latest endevor. The finishing touches are being applied now and he reports it should be available in February of 2012.
After a sneak peak at some of the content, we can safely say that you will want to add this exciting work to your reference library as soon as it becomes available. The pages are full of never before published vintage photos and color reconstructions using original gear. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available. Rumor has it that he is also working on a companion volume covering U.S. Navy Aviators. We can't wait! Best of luck Gregory!
THIS JUST IN.........Greg has sent us aircraft profiles from both his current Marine and future Navy books. Clicking the "Profiles" link button below will take you directly to the first of the three pages.
