Product Description

Product Description

Truly an example of engineering ingenuity born out of the desperation of war, the legendary 'all-wooden' Mosquito was perhaps the best twin-engined fighter-bomber of its size to see action in World War 2. The first bomber variant to enter service was the B Mk IV, initial examples of which were issued to No 2 Group's No 105 Sqn at Swanton Morley, in Norfolk, in November 1941. Considerably faster than the unit's previous Blenheim Mk IVs, powered by inline rather than radial engines, and made of wood instead of metal alloy, the Mosquito initially proved a challenging mount for both air– and groundcrew alike.

About the Author

Norwich-based Martin Bowman has written several volumes on the Mosquito, plus countless works on the USAAF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mosquitoes & Those Who Flew Them... 5 April 2008
By R. Vallely - Published on
Mosquito Bomber/Fighter-Bomber Units 1942-1945 (Osprey Combat Aircraft 4)

After reading numerous books on this subject, I found this book most informative on this aspect of the aircraft and it's crews service. A most important read for those who are interested in the War-winning and unique wood-constructed De Havilland Mosquito and the brave crews who flew them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tools of War 4 Dec 2012
By Tony Marquise Jr. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book lists the Bomber/fighter bomber units of the RAF in World War II. It also describes how these units were employed some of the missions the units flew. These unit were an important part of the RAF and did combat miissions no other type of unit could do. A short referance work, well done, and recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a total rip off 24 Oct 2009
By William Walters - Published on
I cannot begin to express my disappoint in this total rip off. This book was published under a different title at an earlier time. That title is Call to Duty.
Having been a great fan of this author for many years and owning all of his work, I was really looking forward to what I thought to be a new work. Having run into this I simply will never buy one of his books again. This is a cheep and dishonest play for a buck.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs more detail of the airplane 1 Dec 2007
By D. Volberding - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lacks good details of the aircraft. Book is mainly about how it was used in operations. It needed more about the aircraft its self.
