F-84 Thunderjet Units Over Korea (Osprey Aviation Frontline Colour) [Paperback]

Warren Thompson


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

30 Jun 2000 Osprey Aviation Frontline Colour (Book 3)
The straight winged F-84 traces its lineage back to the heavyweight WWII P-47 Thunderbolt. Built as a fighter, the F-84 saw the majority of its wartime service in a bomber role. The first Thunderjets arrived in theatre in late 1950, replacing both the F-51 Mustang and the F-80C Shooting Star. The Thunderjet was among the most colorful aircraft to see action in Korea, and the book features many photos from the author's extensive private collection, as well as first hand accounts from the men who flew these machines. Specifications and a double-page cutaway complete the extensive appendices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 24 Sep 2001
By Randy Presley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Warren Thompson has done an excellent job both pictorally and verbally describing one of the lesser known but most effective weapons of the Korean War, The F-84 Thunderjet. I think the F-84's in Korea may have flown more sorties than any other type. I flew 55 missions in the F-84G, took one AA hit in the wing and it brought me home safely as it did many pilots. Since so many of our G models were given to NATO countries, this model which was the best of the straight wing models, can rarely be seen in a museum today in the U. S. I am buying two more books to send to both the small USAF detachment at Taegu Air Base and the 110th Korean Fighter Squadron for their history of the base which I recently visited after 48 years. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 31 July 2000
By Jim Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Osprey and author Warren Thompson have done it again! An excellent combination of sharp, vibrant color photos, historical narrative and personal stories makes the third in the "over Korea" series an exceptional book for any aviation or Korean War history buff.
The reader is immersed in the details of operational missions, as well as the historical context of the war, giving a unique view of the conflict.
As in the F-86 issue in the series, the type face chosen for the main text is "petite", but otherwise, I highly recommend this volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars F-84E Osprey frontline Colour 3 17 Jun 2011
By T. A. Van Kampen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is truly a marvelous account of the Thunderjet in action in Korea. All images in colour make this book extremely valuable for the modeller in order to recreate an almost real-life replica.

Highly recommended!
