I don't know if it's just because this is a reprint but the profiles are not up to the usual high quality seen by this publisher. Plus, or minus in this case, it doesn't cover all the units or variants/marks from WW2.

Outstanding reference work - well worth the price and time to read. Martin Bowman knows his material and makes it come alive ! Mosquito Fighter/Fighter-Bomber Units of World War 2 is compelling history and a great reference book for historians, miltiary leaders, and World War II enthusiasts! A must for Mosquito enthusiasts.

The Insect that Roared 18 Mar. 2011
By Panjandrum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Mosquito Fighter/Fighter Bomber Units of World War 2" is one of hundreds of titles from Osprey Publications, source of in-depth, well-researched, liberally-illustrated monographs on a wide variety of military history and hardware subjects.

This title hews to Osprey's high standards, being a thorough exploration of the development and use of the DeHavilland Mosquito twin-engine, high-speed aircraft as a fighter (predominantly as a night interceptor and intruder) and as a low-level "hit-and-run" bomber. Interspersed with technical information about the aircraft and histories of the squadrons that employed it are "I-was-there" accounts by pilots, navigators and radar operators that bring home what it was like to fly and fight in a then-state-of-the-art warplane.

This book is a must-have for aviation and military history aficiondos. Osprey also has two other Mosquito-related titles, one dealing with fighter/bomber versions and the other with reconnaissance versions to round out their treatment of the subject. I strongly recommend all three.

story telling 16 April 2010
By D. Volberding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the Mosquito however this book is about the men and missions flown and not about the airplane. I was wanting more on the airplane. Great book if you are one who likes stories about pilots. I don't. I like data on the aircraft themselves. For me it was a dissapointment.
