Published by the National Aeronautics Council, Inc., New York, in 1943, this is a spotters guide covering all the major aircraft found in the World War II era. Edited by L. C. Guthman, Ensign, United States Navy Reserve (U.S.N.R.).
I own a copy. Despite the rough condition on outside, it actually has well-preserved pages with very clean text and great pictures. The pictures aren't photos, but very well done (almost "picture-perfect") sketches in black-and-white. Also has technical data and 3-view silhouette drawings.
Mine was apparently the property of a Ptc. E.R. Moore, 663 M.P.E.G. Co., as marked in the title page and on the back of the book.
Does anyone else own a copy?
May i ask where you got this from?
Some of these spotters guides from WW2 can be extremely rare and expensive, hang onto it for a bit and i will se if i can chat up a few people at the WW2 forum about it and see how rare it could possibly be
Keep Low. Move Fast. First Kill. Die LastOne Shot. One Kill. No Luck. Pure Skill.
I have no memory of where I got it, but the chances are it came from a thrift store or an antique store (both of which I browse as often as I can for such things).
