B-17 at War

Availability: Out of stock

Not only the greatest bomber ever built, the B-17 "Flying Fortress" is also a symbol of American military, industrial, and economic might soaring as it never had before. Veteran aviation writer Bill Yenne documents the hits and misses of the B-17's development, the deployment of the different models - from the first prototype in 1935, the YB-17, to the final version in 1944, the thirteen-gun B-17G - the missions flown, and the men who flew them. Extensively researched, B-17 at War tracks the roles and impact of the Flying Fortress and their crews, detailing each critical mission in the Pacific, Mediterranean, and European Theaters of World War II.
