The North American F-86 Sabre was the most widely produced post-war western swept wing fighter and saw action in Korea and many other smaller wars and skirmishes across the globe.
Aviation historian and Sabre researcher Duncan Curtis tells the full story of the design, development and operational use of both the F-86 and its close relative the Navy's FJ Fury. He covers the many variants of this fine aircraft and its worldwide use by countries as far apart as Great Britain and Australia. Fully illustrated with many rare photographs of this significant aeroplane Ð this is a welcome addition to Crowood's growing Aviation Series.
