3036 Curtiss P-40 vol. I – Krzysztof Janowicz, Leszek Wieliczko – ISBN 978-83-60445-35-8


The first part of the monograph on the Curtiss P-40 constitutes a thorough insight into its origins and development of the B, C, D and E variants. Each variant is specified and described with coverage of changes made in its sub-variants, including the special modifications for the foreign recipients. A separate chapter is devoted to the combat use of the early variants of the P-40 in the RAF and RAAF service in North Africa and the Middle East, where the P-40, called Tomahawk or Kittyhawk, proved to be the most effective Allied fighter until the arrival of the Spitfire Mk V. The book also features short accounts of the Soviet use of P-40 and dramatic action of U.S. P-40s in the defence of Pearl Harbor.
English text, 92 pages, 102 photos, 24 sheets of 1:48 and 1:72 scale drawings, which include specification of external changes in production-run versions of the aircraft, 9 pages of colour charts with 11 examples of camouflage schemes.
