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.Includes color and black and white photos.
