3.0 out of 5 stars Rather too much of a catalogue, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mosquito: Menacing the Reich: Combat Action in the Twin-engine Wooden Wonder of World War II (Kindle Edition)
I love the Mosquito and have seen one close up at Hatfield in the early sixties. This book is not quite the definitive work that I was hoping for. There were rather too many repetitions and I began to wonder whether this was a compilation of other people's efforts rather than a researched volume.

Nevertheless this book does represent a comprehensive list of the operational life of the Mosquito in WW2 and beyond with some valuable insight into the character of the people who flew them. It also brought into sharp focus the extreme danger of flying in the years before D Day. it also recounted the well documented failure of the Mosquito in tropical climates which appears in one paragraph of this book to be discounted as untrue but does later admit that apparent structural failure was three times higher in the Mosquito in this theatre.
