Hagedorn. The culmination of more than 50-years of research, this first volume in a multi-volume set describes in detail, for the first time, the extraordinary array of classic aircraft that deployed to defend the vital Panama Canal and its approaches during World War II. Unlike their combat brethren in the European and Pacific theaters, the units, aircraft, and airmen of the Sixth Air Force - often cited as the "Forgotten Air Force" - have been all but ignored in the vast body of literature that has been published since the war.
