The story of the challenges of developing the Wildcat, Hellcat and Bearcat were just about nil. Format: Paperback. In many respects this is much like other books in the long running Naval Fighters line. Unlike other titles in the series the book is a hefty pages.
Normally for a major service type like the Hellcat publisher and co-author Steve Ginter would spread the Hellcat story over multiple volumes. He doesn't this time and the result is quite effective.
The aircraft was built by Grumman and the co-author is former Grumman test pilot Corwin "Corky" Meyer. This means that the reader is going to be treated to fascinating insights to the aircraft and its origins. Meyer delivers all this and much, much more. We not only get his impressions of the F6F but of its great adversary the Mitsubishi "Zero" as well. Meyer was able to test fly a captured example at the famous Fighter Conference in October which Meyer colorfully describes as a "Candy Store of all candy stores for a year-old test pilot.
Ginter holds up his end of the book as well. Instead of a unit by unit service history which is his stock and trade Ginter delivers a fairly chronological account. This is an action by action account which seems to be all inclusive. Postwar, we have the service in the training commands, the reserves, and foreign service with France, Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay.

As in all Ginter books we are treated to hundreds of contemporary black and white photos along with dozens of illustrations from the technical literature. Unfortunately, the selection of color photos for the rear cover is uninspired. Three of the four are of drones but to be fair the Hellcat did not sport a great deal of color schemes in its career. The front cover photo appears to be colorized.
Complaints are few. There are a few unfortunate typos that mention the Japanese battleship "Yamamoto" instead of the correct "Yamato". Meyer repeats some Japanese disinformation about the DC-4E crashing on a test flight; it was actually disassembled for analysis. This book is highly recommended. This book was the first I heard of Meyer's passing in and Ginter obviously intended this book as a tribute to his long time contributor.
