The first half of this 192-page monograph covers the developmental history of the F2F and F3F. Individual aircraft histories are provided for each aircraft, listing assigned commands, mishaps and final disposition. Detailed period engineering photos show every aspect of the aircraft. This is followed by an operational history of each Navy and Marine Corps squadron that operated the F2F and F3F. The book is generously illustrated with over 440 photos, including 34 colour photos, many not previously published. In addition, 39 illustrations and line drawings are included.
