ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

C-47 is an aircraft that remains a popular favourite and an acknowledged classic design, carrying out missions every bit as strategically important and as dramatic for the aircrew as those of the fighters and bombers. The C-47's wartime operations paved the way for post-war military air transport. It also demonstrated how the USAAF was able to invest in and carry out a mission that it had not devoted much time to preparing for in terms of pre-war doctrine (in contrast to strategic bombing). In addition to linking theatres (by flying across 'the Hump'), it showed how vital it was to operations within a theatre like New Guinea. Even if massed airborne invasions were not carried out in the PTO/CBI, all air arms need transports like the C-47.
Praise

Praise

"A specific, important title military collections will relish." -California Bookwatch (July 2007)

"David Isby has done a superlative job of piecing together what really is quite a complex history of those units that operated in the Pacific... This unique title is also ably illustrated by Chris Davey, who provides 11 pages of superb color profiles. There is material that will stir the building juices of any eager modeler. When you combine the superb prose, oustanding profiles and some of the best period photos around, this makes a book that you simply must have." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com
