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 II (1939-1945). 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.

WRITE A REVIEW

Well documented and researched.

I purchased this book as it was relevant to my father's wartime service and squadron as a bomber pilot. It was very accurate with his memoirs and diary notes. Obviously you would need to have an interest in this subject but for anyone who does, it's well written, clear, with concise information and loads of photos and maps.
