de Havilland Mosquito, Vol. 2: The Bomber and Photo-Recon Marques in World War II (Legends of Warfare: Aviation #50) (Hardcover)
This second of two volumes on de Havilland's Wooden Wonder covers the World War II bomber and photoreconnaissance variants of the deadly Mosquito. Along with its night fighter and fighter-bomber variants, Mosquito bomber squadrons attacked the enemy around the clock. Pinpoint assaults on specialist targets were another aspect of Mosquito operations, whose destructive effect on the Axis was constantly felt. Also featured in this volume is the Mosquito's operational service between 1942 and 1945 within the ranks of the RAF, Commonwealth air forces, and US Army Air Force, as well as postwar use.
