The first volume includes such bombers as the Mosquito, Lancaster, Wellington, He. III, Dornier 17, Junkers 87, Junkers 88, Fortress, Marauder, Mitchell, Liberator, and Savoia-Marchetti 79. The second covers the Boeing Superfortress, Bristol Blenheim, Armstrong Whitworth Whitley, Nakajima Hiryu, Focke-Wulf Condor, Handley Page Halifax, Arado Blitz, plus many others. The first volume became a best-seller and so a companion was written with the same accuracy and wealth of detail and packed with hitherto unpublished information and rare photographs.
