B-17 Flying Fortress, Vol. 2 – Boeing’s B-17E Through B-17H In World War II

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is one of the most iconic aircraft in aviation history. Through a broad range of photos gathered from around the world, this book―the second of two volumes―chronicles the design, development, and wartime use of the late models of the Flying Fortress, from the first truly combat-capable model, the B-17E, to the lifesaving B-17H. These B-17 versions featured the so-called “large” tail and were famously used in the devastating strategic-bombing campaign against Germany. As a special feature, detailed coverage of the famed “Memphis Belle” is included. The story of these iconic WWII aircraft is told through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published, and which are reproduced in remarkable clarity. Large, clear photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, unlock the secrets of this aircraft.
