Overview
-

The two-engined Mosquito was one of the classic aircraft of the Second World War. Famously wooden-built, its graceful lines and powerful performance have made it into an airborne icon. Its operational versatility as a fighter, low level bomber and reconnaissance aircraft was unsurpassed.

In this book we get the first-hand crew accounts of a selection of the actions and missions that the 'Mossie' undertook. These include audacious raids on Nazi HQs and Gestapo jails - real precision attacks carried out by ace fliers.

REVIEWS
-

"…brings to life the courage and will that RAF pilots- certainly all pilots during WWII displayed during every mission…a must have, for this may very well be one of the last books to have first hand stories from the actual men who flew this magnificent plane."
