North American's T-6: A Definitive History of the World's Most Famous Trainer is the book the world's extensive T-6 community has been waiting years to have. Author Dan Hagedorn, Curator for the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington, combines his professional documentation skills with rare access to valuable North American archival material to write the definitive book about one of the world's most beloved World War II aircraft. The T-6 served as an advanced trainer for military pilots from more than 80 nations around the world for several decades. In addition to highly detailed documentation of every T-6 variant used by both the U.S. Army Air Corps and U.S. Navy, all foreign T-6s manufactured in America or exported overseas are listed by individual country as well. Of the nearly 16,000 T-6s built, many hundreds are still flying today as prized restored collectibles or airshow performers, giving this book a large potential readership.

I scratch build radio controlled planes and this book is a very valuable resource for scale, detail and in depth history on the plane I've just completed. The knowledge gained from reading this great book enhances the experience of the successful maiden flight of my very own T-6 in model form.
Excellent, detailed review of the T-6/SNJ/Harvard history from early design through all models. High quality printing. Great pictures, some of them rare. Gives history about where virtually each airplane served as a military trainer throughout the world.
Overall a good book on the T-6 family of trainers. I would have liked some more detail like phantom drawings and pictures of systems. Happy to have it nonetheless.
