{detailed description}The Bomber in World War 2:
A Comparative Study on the Evolution of Aircraft and Tactics: Great Britain, USA, Germany, USSR, Japan, Italy, France.

The Bomber in World War II examines the evolution of the bomber aircraft during the Second World War. The book is divided into three parts.
The first part, 'The Means of Destruction', describes the state of the art of bomber design when the conflict opened in September 1939. Using this as a starting point, it goes on to show how aerodynamic shapes, structures, power plants, defensive armament, electronic navigational aids and bombsights evolved during the conflict.
The second part, 'Six of the Best', contains excerpts from recently released wartime reports of tactical trials of six of the most famous wartime bombers : the German Heinkel 111 and Junkers 88 ; the British Mosquito and Lancaster; and the American B-24 Liberator and B-25 Mitchell. This section gives a wealth of previously unpublished detail on these aircraft.
The third part of the book, 'The Tactics of Destruction', analyses wartime bomber tactics under the general headings of evasive routeing, defensive formations, evasive manoeuvres and bombing methods (horizontal bombing, skip bombing, dive bombing etc).
This book is a sequel to the same author's successful World War II Fighter Conflict. As in the earlier work, the various technical and tactical evolutionary steps are clearly illustrated using photographs and line drawings. In combination with the text they present a precise and objective account of
the World War II bomber and its tactics, which will appeal to both the general reader and the expert.
