In response to the U.S. Navy's search for a new high-speed, high altitude fighter, the Corsair was born. Many new concepts were introduced, including a new 18-cylinder engine, wing panels that folded up, a larger propeller, as well as an inverted gull wing design. The book is filled with lots of technical explanations and pictures concerning the aircraft.
