Description:
Built by Douglas to replace World War 2 dive- and torpedo-bombers, the AD Skyraider was the single most effective naval aircraft of the Korean War, despite the emergence of jet fighters during the conflict.

The Douglas AD Skyraider is considered the most effective naval aircraft of the Korean War despite the emergence of new jet fighters that were to capture public imagination. Built to replace the World War II workhorses like the Dauntless, Helldiver and Avenger dive and torpedo bombers, the Skyraider operated numerous combat missions from carrier decks and from US Marine Corps land bases throughout the conflict.

Drawing from personal interviews with AD pilots, the authors paint a harrowing picture of the deadly combat of this often forgotten air war as pilots took on Chinese and North Korean forces during daring night attacks and whilst outnumbered in daytime attacks.
