B-25 Mitchell Units of the MTO
By Steve Pace and Jim Laurier (Illustrator)

During the course of World War II, throughout the Mediterranean Theater of Operations (which encompassed some 7500 square miles of enemy air space), five USAAF medium-class bomb groups and their 20 bomb squadrons used their allotments of B-25 Mitchell aircraft to perfection. From low-altitude strafing to high-altitude bombing runs, the B-25s in the MTO proved themselves to be a most successful brood of combat aircraft. This volume includes first-hand accounts.
 

 

 

PBJ Mitchell Units of the Pacific War

By Jerry Scutts and Jim Laurier

Flown exclusively by the US Marines, the PBJ was one of those rare examples of an air force type being procured by the navy due to its ability to do exactly the job that was required of it. Bought as a land-based patrol bomber for operations in the Atlantic and Pacific, the PBJ (Patrol, Bomber, North American) was outfitted to hunt down submarines as well as surface vessels. Identical to its air force counterpart, except for its ability to lay mines, deploy depth charges and launch torpedoes, some 706 PBJs were delivered to the Marine Corps from 1943-45. This book outlines the aircraft’s history and technology, and takes a closer look at the men who flew it.
