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.

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.
