    Very informative read The book is full of interesting facts about the aircraft that I had never heard of Examples of are that it dropped torpedo's to destroy dams and that it was seen as a platform to drop nuclear weapons A truly staggering aeroplane

    One of the best Osprey titles published recently Not free from photos size Osprey usual stress but written in way which leave you with impression of order chronology and author's proper research approach Recommended
