    An improved version of the Allison V-1710 engine gave rise to the Curtiss H-87, which began life in 1941 as the P-40D and featured a completely redesigned fuselage. The shorter and deeper nose of the new fighter gave it a decidedly snub-nosed appearance compared to the earlier P-40 models. Curtiss continued to tweak the H-87 for the next... more...

  • Spitfire V vs C.202 Folgoreby Donald Nijboer; Jim Laurier

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 18.95

    The inability of the Italians and Germans to invade Malta proved decisive for Allied victory in the Mediterranean during World War II, as the islands provided the Allies with a base from which to project air power.

Born-from-experience calls from German fighter pilots requested that, rather than... more...
