For the military aircraft historian, this volume is basically a technical description of the units of the Ninth Air Force as flown in the ETO during World War II, including fighters, bombardment, troop carrier, reconnaissance, night fighter and liaison squadrons.

Detailed drawings and descriptions of the markings on aircraft flown by each group have been well researched and presented in a concise, easily followed standardized format. The description of each unit has detailed data including squadron insignia drawings, unit decorations awarded, aircraft markings, campaign streamers and overseas stations with maps showing where each unit was located on the European continent.

The readers will find that this is not just another “how I won the war” book but is a valuable reference publication for verification of wartime assignments of the Ninth Air Force, its units as well as its commanders. This book is recommended as a starting point for research into the details of individual units.
