This is the latest print run of this book from February 2023.

In the light of Japanese successes following the outbreak of war in the Pacific there was an urgent need to equip the Royal New Zealand Air Force with modern combat aircraft. But this was easier said than done.

Eventually the Royal New Zealand Air Force received four hundred and twenty-four Corsairs under the Lease Lend program – the largest number of any aircraft type in the inventory of the young service.

This book covers all aspects of the Corsairs service with the RNZAF; training, operational squadrons, the Servicing Units and post war service in Japan.

About the authors Robert E Montgomery has recorded information about New Zealand World War Two aviation history since childhood. His father was Transport Officer with the 35th Battalion through the Solomon Islands Campaign. David Duxbury is a leading expert on the RNZAF in the Pacific war.

134 pages 250 x 180mm Soft cover ISBN 978-0-9864653-2-1
