3026 Chance Vought F4U Corsair vol. II – Andre R. Zbiegniewski – ISBN 978-83-60445-10-5

The second part of the monograph on the F4U Corsair covers the changes made in their late variants from F4U-1D to F4U-7 and their camouflage and markings. Each variant is specified and described. The book discusses the combat use of F4Us in the FAA units, late U.S. Navy campaigns in the PTO during WW2 and the battles against Soviet MiG-15s during the Korean War. The subsequent chapters are devoted to French use of Corsairs in Indochina and F4U’s service in the Honduran and Salvadoran air forces during the Soccer War in 1969. The book includes technical data, lists of F4U squadrons as of September 1945, USMC & USN Corsair aces and many more.
