No story about one type of aircraft could be more complete than this coverage about the B-57 Canberra.

Initially, the B-57 outfitted four combat wings in the bomber version, along with many units in the reconnaissance role. This becomes another informative reference book dealing with the lively aspect of the Vietnam War. The book is filled with many rare action pictures of this airplane in color and black and white. The expanded appendices contain many historical points such as units and time period of assignment, production records, individual line entries for the history of each aircraft, and many more details that appeal to the airplane historian. more»

Mission 376: Battle Over the Reich
Stock #: KB10057
Author: Ivo de Jong

List Price: $44.95
Karen's Price: $40.95

Some of the bombing missions of the U.S. 8th Air Force in World War II, such as the Schweinfurt and Berlin, have become legendary for one reason or another.

The day had one unusual characteristic, however -- when it saw the first combat use of remote-controlled glide bombs by the USAAF. This book describes in unprecedented detail the events, experience and aircraft of the men on both sides that day during the course of ‘an ordinary mission’. more»
