Hellcat: The F6F in World War II
Aviation historian Barrett Tillman presents the full story of the fighter plane; the men who built and tested it, the squadrons that flew it, and the heroes it created. Heavily illustrated with photographs from the pilots' own collections, this spirited, carefully documented operational history is an absolute must for anyone interested in aviation history.
Barrett Tillman (b. 1948) was born into an Oregon ranching family and developed an early interest in aviation history. He learned to fly as a teenager, was first published at age 15, and graduated from the University of Oregon with a journalism degree. He has worked as a newspaper reporter, book publisher, and magazine editor, but has been self employed all but seven years since graduating from college. Though best known for his histories of US naval aviation, he also has published six novels plus short stories. He frequently appears as a commentator on TV documentaries in addition to his speaking appearances. He is recipient of six writing awards.
