DescriptionRejected as a bomber by the RAF, the B-17 was used extensively as a long-range maritime reconnaissance aircraft by Coastal Command. This book tells the fascinating story of these operations, a vital but often overlooked part of the fight against the U-Boats. All the aircraft involved are listed, and the tedious but essential work of their crews described, including some epic encounters with enemy submarines.Fully illustrated with many wartime photos, and scale plans of the airframe modifications. Full color profiles of representative aircraft.returncharacterreturncharacter returncharacterreturncharacter REVIEWS returncharacterreturncharacter..".cannot recommend this book highly enough-well written, virtually error free, comprehensive, and not just a rehash of over published information. It is a significant contribution to the slender volume of knowledge about RAF Coastal Command and a useful addition to the wealth of information available on the B-17 and Battle of the Atlantic."
