In September 1942 the British public was told of the new aircraft which would save them from Luftwaffe terror raids and would be equipped with AI radar Ð the de Havilland Mosquito; the aircraft which came to be known as the wooden wonder. This fascinating book tells the story of these Mossies and their crews and of the heroic work they did in preventing the Luftwaffe from inflicting even greater terror and damage on the civil population. Superbly illustrated, Mosquitopanik! is a graphic and comprehensive account of the fighter activities of this legendary aircraft from 1942 until the end of the War.
