B-57 Canberra Units of the Vietnam War Paperback / softback
by T. E. Bell
Illustrated by Jim (Illustrator) Laurier
Part of the Combat Aircraft series
The B-57 Canberra was the first jet-powered American attack aircraft committed to the Vietnam War.
Involved in day-to-day interdiction missions as well as in classified "black" missions and a starring role in Operation Rolling Thunder; the B-57 evolved to become one of the most valuable weapons in the USAF inventory.
The B-57E was involved in the Patricia Lynn missions, parts of which remain classified.
This book also fully documents the role of the Australian Canberra B-20 in working alongside the B-57.
Featuring scores of previously unpublished photographs; the story of the B-57 is the story of the Vietnam War.
