About the Author

Chris Bucholtz spent six years in the navy before starting a journalism career that has spanned the gamut from rock music critic to scientific journal editor. Most recently, he's worked as the editor in chief of Forecasting Clouds, a website specializing in helping small business understand business software. At the same time, he's built a parallel career as an aviation historian and noted scale modeler, editing the U.S. branch of the International Plastic Modeling Society's Journal and contributing articles to such magazines as Flight Journal and Air Enthusiast. He's also the aviation editor of Internet Modeler (www.internetmodeler.com), where his long-form "Pilot and His Plane" series serves to tie together history and the hobby.

Reviews

"Over in England, Osprey just keeps cranking out high-quality aviation books under the editorship of Tony Holmes... [This book is in] Osprey's Aviation Elite Units series and features the usual blend of concise text, good quality black and white photos, and numerous color profiles... [This volume] on the all-black 332nd Fighter Group gives a good look into the formation of the outfit and how it trained for combat... There are lots of good photos and stories of the Group in action... recommended." --Jim Larsen, Mustangs International"Aviation Elite Unit books are a departure from the usual Aircraft of the Aces ... and focus on units and their histories instead of specific planes and fronts. The Tuskegee book discusses the humble beginnings of the first all 'Negro' fighter squadron despite the discrimination common at that time. Air war enthusiasts will find [this book] enjoyable and interesting to read ... the color plates are invaluable references when painting [P-51] aircrafts." --Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)"...covers a Tuskegee Experiment designed to prove that Afro-Americans were not capable of flying combat aircraft: an experiment which created one of aviation's top units... Their saga comes to life, here." --Midwest Book Review
