Opis produktu:

A companion piece to his B-17 COMBAT MISSIONS published in 2007, B-24 COMBAT MISSIONS is Martin Bowman's latest volume on the 8th AF. Like its B-17 predecessor, B-24 COMBAT MISSIONS takes a fresh approach to the subject, combining first-hand reminiscences by 8th AF Liberator vets with b&w and color photographs of B-24 interiors/exteriors, combat gear/equipment, combat scenes and squadron life. At $12.98, it's a bargain and a good read to boot!

After a short chapter detailing the B-24's development and combat history, Bowman details how an 8th AF mission was mounted. He then focuses on the Liberator, each chapter describing a crew position in the bomber (Pilot, Co-Pilot, Navigator, Nose Gunner, etc.), telling of that individual's duties and environment followed by several reminiscences by actual 8th AF B-24 personnel who served in that capacity.

Though some of the material and accompanying pix has been previously seen, Bowman includes enough new material to justify its purchase. Likewise the color photos of flight suits, squadron patches, bombs, turrets, parachutes, first aid kits, ammunition belts and other combat gear help bring the life and times of those long-ago Liberator warriors to vivid life. If possible, I would have given B-24 COMBAT MISSIONS 4 1/2 stars; no index!.
