B-17 Flying Fortress Units of the Eighth Air Force : Pt. 2 Paperback
Illustrated by Mark Styling
Part of the Osprey Combat Aircraft series
The Boeing B-17, which has come to epitomize the American war effort in Europe, took the fight to Germans from the late summer of 1942 through to VE-Day.
Its primary operator in Western Europe was the "Mighty Eighth", who controlled 27 bomb groups for much of the war.
This second of two volumes covers the 14 bomb groups of the Third Air Division.
First hand accounts, period photography, profile artworks and nose art scrap views bring to life aircraft from each of the groups within the Third Air Division.
