B-17 at War
is a brief, heavily illustrated history of the Boeing Flying Fortress in WWII. The text comprises an outline of the development of the bomber and its key characteristics, and a chronological narrative of the most prominent B-17 missions. The B-17 has been the subject of many books, but this one is worth having for its many intelligently selected historic photographs. In addition to the usual suspects, the photos feature some real rarities, reproduced with excellent clarity. —George Schmidt
