Douglas A-4E/F Skyhawks In Marine Service is the companion volume to Naval Fighters Number FiftyOne, Douglas A-4E/F Skyhawks In Navy Service. The Navy volume contains 41 pages of development, aircraft description details and drawings, as well as 19 pages of armament
details and drawings that pertain to Marine A-4E/Fs.
Although fewer Marine squadrons were equipped with the A-4E/Fs than Navy squadrons, the type still
saw extensive usage in Vietnam. The close air support that these aircraft provided to our deployed troops were invaluable and saved countless American lives.
