Korean Air War

The Korean War was the first serious clash of the Cold War, but it also witnessed a small and often-overlooked revolution in airpower. During the conflict, the last generation of piston-engined fighters gave way to new state-of-the-art jet- powered replacements. In Korean Air War, Michael Napier, former RAF pilot and author of numerous illustrated aviation histories, explores the advances of equipment on all sides and the course of the campaign from the skies above, complete with striking colour and black-and-white images.
