This book, Boeing B-29 Superfortress Units of the Korean War is the story of a majestic bomber of the propeller era flying perilous combat missions against a sleek, nimble warplane of the jet age, the Soviet MiG-15. A very heavy bomber and a sky giant during World War 2, at that time the most advanced combat aircraft in the world, the B-29 was reclassified a medium bomber by the time North Korea attacked its southern neighbour in 1950. Many of its crew members had fought their war and settled down to raise families and begin careers only to be recalled to fight another war on a distant Asian peninsula.
