Description

B-17: Combat Missions takes the reader through every crew position of the “Flying Fort” to show what it was like to fly—and fight—in what was one of the most famous bombers of World War II. Uniquely, first-hand accounts from crewmembers are grouped with archive and commissioned photographs of the plane and of items of memorabilia, to bring the stories of these “gladiators of the air” alive in truly vivid detail.

Features:

Some 100 first-person accounts, many previously unpublished, from Flying Fortress crewmembers.

Each crew position is featured in turn—the pilot and copilot, the navigator, the radio operator, the bombardier, the engineer/top turret gunner, the waist gunners, the ball-turret gunner, and the tail gunner—to give a complete overview of what it was like to fly a B-17 combat. mission

Illustrated with more than 100 items of memorabilia, some 40 specially commissioned photos of B-17 crew positions, and over 180 archive photos.
