Books Info:

352nd Fighter Group free pdf Nicknamed the 'Bluenosed Bastards of Bodney' due to the garish all-blue noses of their P-51s and their wartime base in Norfolk the 352nd was one of the most successful fighter groups in the Eighth Air Force. Initially equipped with P-47s, the group transitioned to P-51s just prior to D-Day, and it was with the Mustang that its pilots enjoyed the greatest success. Indeed, the ranking P-51 ace in the ETO was a 352nd FG pilot, Maj George Preddy who claimed 26.83 kills with the fighter. Not far behind him in terms of kills was 24-victory ace John Meyer, and the exploits of the remaining 28 aces are also detailed. This book also discusses the various markings worn by the group's three squadrons, the 328th, 486th and 487th FSs.
