Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

CYBERMODELER ONLINE
"This is a nicely written title with great photography that will interest aviation enthusiasts as well as modelers who are looking for some good views in and around the Flying Fortress airframe. Definitely recommended!"

PACIFIC FLYER
"This is not an owner's manual, it's a fan's manual. It's a loving detailed look at one of the most famous airplanes of World War II in great detail, with some 250 photos, most in color, and drawings with inside looks at some of those still flying."

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress covers one of the biggest symbols of American military might during World War II: a plane which spearheaded the bomber offensive over Germany. This book packs in specific insights on owning, servicing and flying the bomber, packing in well over 200 color photos and diagrams to pair history with hardware analysis and aviation and military insights like. Military and aviation libraries will find it a compelling visual pick!"

LOGBOOK
"...a highly readable narrative that is at the same time informative and entertaining. "
