The artwork in this coffee table book is great, we bought it for a going away gift for an office worker and everyone is signing the inside cover. If you like WWII aviation art, this is the book for you!

Now here's a winning formula! Combine 75 evocative artworks on WWII's 8th AF by some of the world's best aviation artists with text by Roger Freeman, THE 8th AF historian. In this case, the result is THE MIGHTY EIGHTH IN ART, a superb visual tribute to the life and times of the Mighty Eighth.

Within this book's 160 pages is some of the very best artwork done on the 8th AF from 1942 to 1995 by artists like Frank Wootton, Keith Ferris, Gil Cohen, Peter Hurd, Robert Taylor, Mike Bailey, Matthew Waki, Keith Hill, Jim Laurier, Nixon Galloway and John Young. The images range from dynamic combat scenes to quiet, slice-of-life pastoral scenes. In terms of subject matter, the B-17 is featured in 29 of the 75 artworks, the B-24 in 12, the P-51 in 16, the P-47 in 11, etc. There is some stunning artwork in this Arms & Armour Press book! My personal favorites include Grinnell's 'One of Four That Day,' Cohen's 'The Regensburg Mission,' Laurier's 'Jungle Princess' and Trudgian's 'Thundering Home.'

Published in 1996, Freeman's book is long out of print. Though there have been many books published on the Mighty Eighth, this volume is an absolute must-have. Its artwork recreates the 8th AF's war in a fashion that is as dramatic as it is evocative, in images no camera could capture.
  • Humin
Great picture
  • Very Old Chap
The Gil Cohen paintings stand out a mile in this book. But the Nicholas Trudgian cover painting 'Thundering Home' is spectacular. Interesting and evocative.
