The F4U in World War II and Korea
This book is a history of the Corsair, spanning development, a summary of USN and USMC World War II Pacific usage, service with the Commonwealth, Korean war and other wars.
Of interest, the Corsair was used by both Honduras and El Salvador during the Soccer War of 1969. Both sides used the type for patrolling, strafing and several dogfights, including one combat on July 14 when Honduras Air Force Captain Soto piloted Corsair 609 and shot down three El Salvadorian aircraft in one mission, including two Corsairs and a P-51D.
Appendixes include: surviving Corsairs, variants, specifications and WWII monthly acceptance of Corsair production.
