Description - De Havilland Mosquito by Stuart Howe

- Comprehensive pictorial record - 400 B+W photos - Fully detailed extended captions - Combines with Volume 2 to provide 1,000 Mosquito photographs A private venture aircraft, the much-loved Mosquito was possibly the most versatile of all British aircraft of the 2nd World War. Revolutionary in its wood construction, the de Havilland Mosquito played a vital role in the war combining the manoeuverability of a fighter with the payload of a medium bomber. It contributed to the war as a fighter; an unarmed bomber, a reconnaissance aircraft and its different versions included the Sea Mosquito, the first British twin-engined aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier. De Havilland Mosquito An Illustrated History Volume 1 traces the fascinating development of the Mosquito from its first flight in November 1940 through to its production and many variants. Using fully detailed extended captions the Mosquito's varied uses in post-war days are outlined including its role ranging from oil prospecting and air racing to aerial survey. Supported by over 400 photographs including some colour, this volume together with its companion volume De Havilland Mosquito An Illustrated History Volume 2 will form an indispensible 1,000 picture archive for any Mosquito historian or enthusiast.
