More > aircraft accidents between Dec. 7, 1941 and August 1945. Many of the accidents have narrations, while there are listings for a couple hundred additional crashes. Widner also provides aerial photos showing the crash sites along with local landmarks. These images and other resources in this book will allow future historians and those interested in finding aircraft crash sites an outstanding place to begin their research.

I highly recommend this book to hikers, aviation enthusiasts, and historians interested in the World War II era. Nicholas A. Veronico< Less
