Boeing B-29 Superfortress: The Ultimate Look: From Drawing Board to VJ-Day (Hardback, illustrated edition)

By Wolf, Dr William

Although many books have been published about the B-29, none has been an in-depth look, with most being either superficial pictorials or focusing on the bombing campaigns, particularly the incendiary attacks and atomic bombings. This book, using rare, previously unexplored source...s, intends to provide the definitive look at the bomber and crew, detailing every facet for the air enthusiast, historian and modeler. The author was granted rare access to the Pima Air & Space Museums restored B-29 Sentimental Journey for inspection and photography, resulting in the most extensive photographic documentation of the B-29 ever published. The Pima Museums archives, filled with B-29 technical and crew manuals also gave the author extensive information that had not been previously published. These sources, the authors extensive personal library, and microfilm resources enabled the author to produce this comprehensive look at the bomber and its crew in the context of the bombers development and operational use. It is truly monumental in scope, both in words and photos.
