During World War II, the B-17 made its mark in Europe with daring and devastating bombing runs over the heart of German industry. Fans of the B-24 consider it the most important bomber of the War for its large payload and versatility. And the B-29, with its pressurized cabin and remote-control gun turrets, was the ultimate strategic bomber, flying higher, faster, and farther than any of its counterparts, making it the logical choice for the War-ending flights over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Great American Bombers of WWII combines three bestselling MBI Publishing Company aircraft histories into one huge, value-priced volume. The nose art, markings, and camouflage schemes of each of the USAAF's marquee bombers are detailed in archival black-and-white photographs, as well as in rare War-era color photography, making this volume a package any World War II enthusiast will want for his or her library.
