Of the thirteen types of aircraft described in this Fact File, which were either in service with or developed for the U.S. Navy in the period 1941-1945, only three played a major role in combat operations, these being the Grumman F4F Wildcat, Grumman F6F Hellcat and Chance Vought F4U Corsair.

A fourth, the Brewster F2A Buffalo, was significant as the first monoplane fighter aircraft to enter service with the U.S. Navy, but most of its combat use was in the hands of other services, as described. The other nine types either failed to pass the prototype testing stage and achieve production, or entered production too late to see active service, but it is noteworthy that one of these fighters, the McDonnell Phantom, was the first jet fighter for the U.S. Navy; thus, the service that entered the war in December 1941 with its first monoplane fighter still in service, ended it less than four years later with its first jet fighter being readied for operations.

    Though having half of the pages as compared to U.S. Navy Carrier Fighters Of WW II, in all fairness that must be attributed to the colour art, line drawings and page-sized photographs of the latter. When it comes to actual information both are equally good, but this title has an advantage of describing each and every fighter that was either in service with the US Navy or developed for it, giving some thirteen types, eight more than it's competitor. Amongst them beauties such as the Bell Airaboni Though having half of the pages as compared to U.S. Navy Carrier Fighters Of WW II, in all fairness that must be attributed to the colour art, line drawings and page-sized photographs of the latter.
