Curtiss Warhawk Aces of MTO, Carl Molesworth

Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 43

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was the main Allied frontline fighter for nearly a year in North Africa. As the war in desert reached its climax at El Alamein and with Operation Torch, American pilots arrived to join the RAF and commonwealth pilots with their Kittyhawks. This book looks at those American pilots.

Chapter one follows the 57th Fighter Group from America to the western desert, and the immediate aftermath of El Alamein. The emphasis on their early experiences is of particular interest. Chapter two follows the 33rd Fighter Group as it took part in Operation Torch, the invasion of North Africa. Chapter three looks at the final allied attacks on Tunisia. Finally, chapter four takes the story into Sicily and Italy.
