MOSQUITO FIGHTER SQUADRONS OF WWII. THE 'WOODEN WONDER' Pictorial history. Focuses on the Mosquito fighter/fighter-bomber variants and their users.
The second volume in the trilogy of Combat Aircraft titles devoted to de Havilland's 'wooden wonder', this book focuses on the Mosquito fighter/fighter-bomber variants, and their users. From its earliest development phase, the aircraft was considered as much a fighter as a bomber, and this was duly reflected when the original 1940 Air Ministry order for 50 Mosquito bombers was modified to 20 bombers and 30 fighters. This volume is the first of its kind exclusively dedicated to the fighter/fighter-bomber variants of de Havilland's classic wartime aircraft. From the primary modifications undertaken to convert the unarmed B IV into a Mosquito fighter to the later addition of AI Mk IV radar which turned the Mosquito into the RAF's premier nightfighter. Included is detailed text with crews explaining tactics used in the night skies over Europe and the Mediterranean. 96 pages 100b/w; 30 color profiles 7 x 9. fighter groups
