Légende associée: '' Shopworn Angel '' - WJ Woodrum était à Londres ce jour-là et le Capt Lucius B Clay, officier des opérations du 495e Escadron, pilotait son appareil, mais les dommages causés par les DCA empêchaient l'abaissement du train atterrissage. Jerry Scutts has worked in the field of aviation publishing since the late 1960s, writing over 40 books that have covered a broad spectrum of subject matter ranging from US Navy floatplane fighters in World War 2 to the exploits of the USAF s Phantom IIs over Vietnam. His specialist areas are the Luftwaffe and the US Army Air Forces in World War 2, and he originally appeared on the Osprey list as long ago as 1977, when he wrote the second volume in the now much sought after Air Cam Air War series –- many of the jacket illustrations in this series were also painted by him.

I bought this for my husband. His father had flown in a Marauder in the war and he found the book very interesting.

Good Book.

I have several books on the B-26. This is a good one because it has many stories from the pilots who flew the medium bombers. It is not a nuts and bolts technical book, but more of an operational review of the Marauder in the Pacific, Mediterranean and European theaters. As other books do, the author spends much time debunking the myth that the B-26 was a "widow maker".

The Martin B-26 was fast medium bomber designed July 1939 and first flew November, 1940. Over 1,100 were ordered before the first one flew. No prototypes, Martin had to build extra factories, train new work force, build planes as fast as they could to meet the demands. Eventually, over 5,000 were made. Eventually, the problems got sorted out. Some of the cures - Give green pilots and service crews more training. Make the wing larger. Add more powerful enginges. The author lists many firsts of this bomber, a solid record by any account.

J.K. Havener was a B-26 pilot. It is obvious that he learned to love this plane and after reading his book, you will see why. 3 stars because the book is small 9x6". The photos (there are some color) are also small, some grainy. This is not a book for modelers, but rather for aviation buffs of WW2 and some one interested in getting the record straight for this often misunderstood bomber.

The best books are written from personal experience, and illustrated with combat art. This is. It covers the abbreviated development of the B-26, the controversies, and the modifications that made it better.
Life in the Marauder squadrons was colorful. Playing cards between missions, landing crippled planes next to their base runway, watching buddies go down in flames- it reads like comrades telling stories at reunions. I enjoyed (most of) them. I wanted to repeat one here, but all were too long to include!
This could have been much better, if the pictures were clearer (I know, wartime photography was difficult), or if the book was a larger hardcover or accompanied by unit appendices.

This book does a fine job of revealing the story of an airplane that has been largely forgotten. It suffered through many modifications and was called many less than complimentary names by her crews, but when everything was said and done she accomplished her missions as well or better than many of her compatriots. In the end she even lost her B26 designation to another airplane. A fascinating story you shouldn't miss.
