B-25 Mitchell Units of the CBI, Paperback / softback Book

B-25 Mitchell Units of the CBI Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Jim (Illustrator) Laurier

Part of the Combat Aircraft series


Flying from and between bases in China and India, the B-25s bombed every type of Japanese target during World War 2 in the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theatre, ultimately dropping more ordinance than their larger four-engined B-24 Liberator brethren. Mitchell bombers took on the task of disrupting the flow of Japanese supplies to the frontlines at medium ranges, bombing Japanese supply centres, railway depots and bridges.

It was in this last capacity that the B-25 established a unique role as a 'bridge-buster'.

This provided significant support for the British Fourteenth Army as they advanced into Burma. Fully illustrated with detailed cutaway artwork, this book tells the important, yet forgotten story of B-25 operations in the CBI Theatre and the important role that this aircraft played on the road to victory.
