Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 classic World War II (1939-1945) aircraft.

Synopsis:

Though the Mosquito gained fame both as a bomber and a fighter, the addition of radar transformed the "Wooden Wonder" into the RAF's premier nightfighter. In its newfound nocturnal roll, the Canadian-built aircraft achieved great success defending of Britain and patrolling occupied Europe.

This, the first volume of its kind devoted exclusively to fighter variants of the de Havilland classic, features fully detailed appendices, firsthand accounts from Mosquito crew members, rare archival photographs, and 30 specially commissioned drawings depicting various Mosquito paint schemes and the uniforms worn by its crews.
