Product Description

About the Author

Norwich-based Martin Bowman has written several volumes on the Mosquito, plus countless works on the USAAF. An airbrush artist with years of experience, Chris Davey has become Osprey's principal illustrator of RAF aircraft, having produced the profiles for over a dozen books since 1994. His most recent work includes Aircraft of the Aces 38 and Combat Aircraft 31. He is particularly adept at 'big' aircraft like the Halifax and Sunderland.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.
