Thousands of pilots have learned how to fly at the controls of the North American T-6 Texan/Harvard. That alone would be a great reason to make a book on this aircraft.

Quite a few of the type are still in airworthy condition and this books takes a really close look at many of them. The photos were taken from many different aircraft, all in airworthy conditions, with special attention given to those in an original state. No detail of the aircraft is overlooked: the entire fuselage, wings, vertical tail, canopy, engine: everything is included in this book !
This book has over 280 photos, in the air, in the maintenance hangar. A chapter on the maintenance of the T-6 is included in this book, including a close-up of the Pratt & Whitney Wasp engine, as well a very close look at the cockpit, both the front seat as the back seat.
