Appendices: 1100 Production Models; General Data; Torque Wrench Settings; General Dimensions; Routine Maintenance: Wiring Diagrams. Scattered tiny foxing marks on top of text block, slight tiny bump at top corner of boards.

"From November 1942 through to May 1945, the backbone of the USAAF's medium bomber force was provided by the clutch of bomb groups equipped with the B-25 Mitchell. First seeing action in North Africa in the wake of Operation Torch, and in the Battle of El Alamein, the 'bombing twin' proved to be one of the most successful allied combat types i n t h e Mediterranean Theatre of Operations (MTO). Possessing a greater bomb-load, better range and higher top speed than the previous generation of British and American medium bombers that had struggled to defeat the axis powers in-theatre sin c e 19 4 0, t he B-25 was to equip five USAAF bomb groups. From low-altitude ship strafing over the Mediterranean to high-altitude bombing runs on the Po River Valley, the B-25s in the MTO proved themselves to be a most successful brood of combat ai rc raf t. " Int erior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - faint rub line on rear cover. Near Fine
