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.

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.
