MOSQUITO BOMBER/FIGHTER-BOMBER UNITS, 1942-45. The legendary 'all-wooden' Mosquito was perhaps the best twin-engined fighter-bomber of its size in WWII. --46% DISCOUNT!! -- CLEARANCE SALE

Click to EnlargeCLEARANCE SALE Made of wood rather than metal alloy, the Mosquito proved a challenging mount for both air- and groundcrew alike. This volume charts the careers of bomber and fighter-bomber variants in service both with Bomber and Coastal Commands, plus the RAAF and SEAC in the Far East.

Truly an example of engineering ingenuity born out of the desperation of war, the legendary 'all-wooden' Mosquito was perhaps the best twin-engined fighter-bomber of its size to see action in World War 2. The first bomber variant to enter service was the B Mk IV, initial examples of which were issued to No 2 Group's No 105 Sqn at Swanton Morley, in Norfolk, in November 1941. Considerably faster than the unit's previous Blenheim Mk IVs, powered by inline rather than radial engines, and made of wood instead of metal alloy, the Mosquito initially proved a challenging mount for both air? and groundcrew alike.


96 pages of unusual photos, plus full color plates of the Mosquito in various configurations, and 1/96th scale plans.
