Title: B-24 Liberator Units of the Eighth Air Force. Osprey Combat Aircraft Series 15.
Description: Osprey, Oxford, 1999.. 96 pp, 9 3/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 1855329018 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs and scale drawings, colour profiles. "The B-24 Liberator was built in greater numbers than any other US warplane, yet its combat crews live, even today, in th e shadow of the less plentiful, but better-known, B-17. Accounts of the 'Mighty Eighth' in Europe, and indeed many of the books and films that emerged from the greatest air campaign in history, often overlook the B-24, even though it was in a c t i o n for as long as the Flying Fortress, and participated in just as many perilous daylight bombing missions. Twenty-one bomb groups saw action with the Eighth from 9 October 1942 through to VE-Day, operating both from airfields in the 'bombe r tr ia ng le ' in East Anglia, and North Africa. Providing an overview of Eighth AF B-24 operations, this volume is the second of four within this series chronicling the role of the Liberator in World War 2." Interior - clean and tight with no p re vio us own ers hi p marks. Exterior - A few faint line indentation as a two faint rub marks on front cover. Very Good+.
