Summary

Summary

The second volume in the trilogy of Combat Aircraft titles devoted to de Havilland's 'wooden wonder', this book focuses on the Mosquito fighter/fighter-bomber variants, and their users. From its earliest development phase, the aircraft was considered as much a fighter as a bomber, and this was duly reflected when the original 1940 Air Ministry order for 50 Mosquito bombers was modified to 20 bombers and 30 fighters. This volume is the first of its kind exclusively dedicated to the fighter/fighter-bomber variants of de Havilland's classicnbsp;World War II (1939-1945)nbsp;aircraft.


Author Notes

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