WarPlane Color Gallery; Carl Molesworth. Camouflage and Markings of the American Volunteer Group and the USAAF 23rd Fighter Group, 1941-1945. No aircraft markings in history are more iconic than the distinctive shark's mouths applied to the noses of American Volunteer Group and 23rd Fighter Group P-40s and P-51s that fought in the skies over Asia during World War II. This book covers the camouflage and markings of the fighters they flew, including the first detailed account of the progression of markings changes made by the 23rd FG throughout the war, as well as the combat history of these legendary units. It features over 100 rare period photographs, full-color plates showing different aircraft types employed by the units across different camouflage patterns, with very detailed captions and reference photos. Over the past 35 years, the author has written more than a dozen books and numerous magazine articles about USAAF fighter operations during World War II. 105 black & white photos, 6 color photos and 32 full color plates of artwork; 64 pages.
