B-26 Marauder Units of the Eighth and Ninth Air Forces
("Osprey Combat Aircraft" Series No. 2)
By Jerry Scutts
very thoroughly researched book has a little bit of something for everyone interested in
the Martin B-26 Marauder. Details of the machines and markings plus narratives from the
men who flew them in combat. Insightful and accurate treatment of the myths surrounding
the airplane, its setbacks and final vindication as an excellent weapon. Contains many
black and white photographs (most not seen before), three-view line drawings, color

resource at a better price anywhere. [From a reader review.]
