Publisher    Ian Allan, London, 1989, reprint.

Seller ID   25232

144 pp, 11 1/4" H, hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0711004749 "From the outset the Mosquito was a daring concept. That an unarmed bomber, constructed almost wholly of wood and relying on pure speed, could evade the immensely powerful air defences of Nazi Germany by night, let alone by day, was completely against contemporary Air Force thinking and war experience. The result was an aircraft which became the most successful fighter and bomber of World War II. Extreme versatility led to i t s use in a wide range of operational roles - day and night bomber, night fighter, intruder, Pathfinder, shipbuster, bomber support, reconnaissance and a dozen others. Mosquitos served too in practically every theatre of war from Britain to Bur ma . I n this book the author has recaptured the unique appeal of the Mosquito to the fighting airmen of World War II and the high spirits and elan that distinguished Mosquito Squadrons everywhere. First-hand accounts of operations by the men who fl ew th e aircraft are illuminated by a remarkable collection of over 200 photographs. They depict the Mosquito in all its various guises and roles. They show, too, the patient, painstaking and frequently hazardous work of the ground crews who, for th eir pa rt, also shared in the Mosquito spirit." Book is cocked, very small tear (archivally taped) with crease at top of rear free endpaper. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has minor wear/light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and fla p-fol ds, ligh t r ubbing. Very Good/Very Good
