Synopsis

Synopsis

Osprey's study of the A-26 Invader Units' participation in World War II (1939-1945). Designed to combine the bombing capability of the B-26 Marauder with the versatility of the ground-attack A-20 Havoc, the A-26 Invader would become the USAAF's attack bomber par excellence. Capable of flying low-level strafing or conventional bombing missions by simply changing the nose configuration of the aircraft, the Invader first saw action in 1943 in the Pacific Theater attacking Japanese-held islands. Arriving in Europe several months later, the A-26 served with distinction for the remainder of World War II. In fact, the design proved so successful that it would go on to fly combat missions for a further two decades. Written by military aviation expert Jerry Scutts and illustrated with brand-new color profiles and rare photography, this is the first book to focus exclusively on the A-26's missions in World War II.

Praise

"This is a great book that will present you a nice story about A-26, and I can highly recommend it to all interested in aviation history and in war birds in general." - Darko Mladenovic, www.letletlet-warplanes.com

"There are plenty of reasons to buy this publication, most importantly is the limited amount of information available for the A-26 in both the ETO and PTO. This is a nice little one-stop shop. The model builder will be inspired by the photos and the profiles. I really enjoyed this book and, also, many of the other ones from the series. You can’t go wrong here." - IPMS/USA

"This is the first book to focus exlusively on the A-26's missions in World War II... The concise, authoritative text is supported by at least 30 original color artworks, specially commissioned scale drawings, and the best archival photography from around the world." - Flying Models (January 2011)
