Inhaltsangabe: The B-24 Liberator was built in greater numbers than any other US WW2 aircraft, and served in every theater of WW2, as heavy bomber, anti-submarine aircraft, reconnaissance and transport. Produced in several factories, there were many variations, both minor and major, and existing literature is confusing and inaccurate.
This book describes the development of nose-turreted versions of the B-24 as used by the USAAF, from field modification of early variants through to the many production versions built by Consolidated, Ford, and others, up to the definitive single-tailed B-24N. All aspects of the airframe are covered, from nose to tail, and the bewildering variety of turrets, guns, windows and other areas are described and illustrated. Much of this information has never been published before, and much that has been published is incomplete or inaccurate.
Profusely illustrated with photos and detailed scale drawings, this book provides aviation enthusiasts and modelers the first complete guide to this major warplane. Future volumes will cover early versions without nose turrets, transport and anti-submarine versions, and non-USAAF variants.
"...very special and packed with all that juicy detail that modelers crave....really comprehensive...Unquestionably essential! "
Air Modeler, April May 2012
"... probably one of the best, and most descriptive, titles for a modeling/aircraft reference book I have seen... an absolutely dizzying combination of nose turrets, tail turrets, waist guns, belly turrets and guns, and other modifications/design changes made to the B-24. The book goes into great detail of each step in the process, and the author makes every attempt to explain the differences clearly for each new piece of this puzzle. Crystal-clear photos many previously unpublished, as well as a huge number of line drawings (with differences highlighted in red) accompany a very clear descriptions... amount of research this author has conducted is admirable, and the results show."
