The Enola Gay: The B-29 That Dropped the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima

Product Description
by Norman Polmar

The world entered the atomic age in August 1945, when the B-29 Superfortress named Enola Gay flew some 1,500 miles from the island of Tinian and dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

In this unique book, award-winning historian and author Norman Polmar tells the story of the Enola Gay, the Boeing B-29 program, and the combat operations of the B-29 type. After nearly two decades of restoration, the Enola Gay has become one of the highlights of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center at the Washington Dulles International Airport.

The Enola Gay is the complete account of the aircraft - from concept to artifact - whose controversial mission changed the course of world history.
