Though this remarkable, piston-engined dive-bomber was developed too late for service in World War II, it served with distinction in both Korea and Vietnam. Its rugged construction and ability to carry more than three tons of ordnance made it ideal for a wide variety of tasks, thereby ensuring its longevity. Illustrated with more than 200 photographs, including an eight-page color section, this meticulously researched history fully charts the design, development, and service histories of all Skyraider variants.
