Description

When de Havilland proposed, in 1938, an unarmed bomber constructed almost entirely from wood, few would have thought it could become one of the most versatile aircraft of the Second World War. The Mosquito easily outran a Spitfire on its test flight and was ordered into mass production, soon proving itself a key weapon in the fight against the Luftwaffe by day and the Nachtjagd by night. Illustrated throughout with previously unpublished photographs, this book tells the story of an aircraft which was for many the perfect synthesis of power and beauty. Author Martin Bowman describes the service histories and daring exploits of the 7,781 examples of the `Wooden Wonder' which were built in the UK, Canada and Australia.show more
