This is a 3 volume set on 'US Air Power' and the books concentrate on the Aircraft themselves, their weapons and their battlefield might. The three books include:
- Modern Air Superiority Planes, by Anthony A. Evans
- Modern Attacks Planes, by Anthony A. Evans
- Modern Bombers, by A Pustam
From the rear side cover: The US Air Power series is the definitive illustrated guide to recent American dominance in the skies. Covering the planes and crews of the USAF as well as Naval, Marine and Army air wings, these books cover a period from World War II through to the present day in which American pilots have prevailed in all combat situations and have laid the foundation for the swift and decisive victories achieved during that time.
Each volume has 72 pages, and includes well over 100 photographs, 16 pages of which are in colour, and every photograph in each of the books has a detailed caption outlining combat histories and technical specification.
The first volume (Modern Air Superiority) features the cutting edge of America's aircraft and weaponry that contribute to its massive combat might. The book includes some of the most famous names in operation today: the F-14 Tomcat and the F-15 Eagle amongst others as well as a selection of the massive air-to-air armoury available to them such as the Sidewinder and the AMRAAM. The Second Volume includes details of modern attack aircraft such as the F-117 Nighthawk, the A-10 Tankbusting Thderbolt II, and the vertical lift AV-8B Harrier, and the third volume (on Modern Bombers) features the B-2A, B-1B and B-52, as well as the air-to-surface weaponry that they deploy, such as JDAM and JAASM
