Pursue & Destroy is an out of print book published by Sentry Publications. It is likely the best version of the P-51 Mustang story, it's design, development and production, as well as the wartime success of the P-51 Mustang. The book discusses some very interesting WWII era comparisons of both Allied planes and Axis planes compared to the Mustang in actual period fly offs. Leonard "Kit" Carson puts forth the assertion that the P-51B was the ultimate wartime Mustang because "if you can't hit them with four guns, six won't help" and that the real or actual top speed of the P-51B was an incredible 467 mph! Pursue & Destroy also tells the story of a young boy growing up in he depression era and his rise as a successful fighter pilot, and the stress and aging imposed on the young ace, Kit Carson. A personally riviting story of hardship, integrity, patriotism, faith and sacrifice. Both stories are worth telling and reading and deserve being remembered in today's America. Recommeded for all American patriots. This book is the most cherished of my collection.
