P-61 Black Widow: Northrop Night Fighter in WWII (Legends of Warfare: Aviation #57) (Hardcover)
The striking P-61 Black Widow was the first purpose-built American night fighter. Designed by Jack Northrop and Vladimir Pavlecka, the P-61's menacing appearance was matched by the plane's advanced technology and fearsome weaponry. Interestingly, the Widow is credited with the final aerial kill of the war.
