The continuation of World War II's most intriguing new aviation series.

In Hidden Warbirds II, the engaging follow-up to the critically acclaimed Hidden Warbirds, aviation historian Nicholas A. Veronico further explores the romantic era of World War II warbirds and the stories of some of its most famous wrecks and recoveries. The long-lost aircraft featured in this much-anticipated sequel include a Hawker Tempest being restored in Texas; the sole surviving Brewster F3A Corsair, rescued from a swamp; and a Junkers 88 recovered from the icy waters of Norway. Throughout the book, Veronico provides a history of each aircraft, as well as the unique story behind each discovery and recovery, all accompanied by incredible documentary photographs. With over 150 of these photographs, depicting more than 20 warbird stories spanning the world, Hidden Warbirds II triumphantly continues a nonfiction series that renowned military author Alan Griffith calls "a fascinating joy to read."

Review:


They're Still Out There

Today, nearly seventy years after the end of World War II, there is a strong movement to find, restore, and fly aircraft from that conflict. It is one thing to see a Messerschmitt Bf 109, a North American Aviation P-51 Mustang, or a Supermarine Spitre sitting in a museum, but it is another sensory experience to hear the roar of a Rolls-Royce Merlin or Daimler-Benz engine as it pulls a fighter through the air at speeds approaching 400 mph. The sound is heard and the engine’s vibrations are felt, depending upon where one stands, and the auditory sensations of the aircraft and its engine bring history to life.


About the Author:

Nicholas A. Veronico has written extensively on US naval operations in World War II on the sea and in the air.
