"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 "A specific, important title military collections will relish." --California Bookwatch (July 2007)Reseña del editor:
From Pearl Harbor to VJ-Day, the humble Douglas C-47/R4D carried out missions every bit as strategically important, and as dramatic for the aircrew involved, as those of the fighters and bombers in the vast Pacific/CBI theatres. The C-47's wartime operations paved the way for post-war military and civil air transport, proving that aircraft could safely conduct routine flights from the USA, Australia and India throughout the Pacific and South-east Asia. The flights also demonstrated how the USAAF was able to invest in, and carry out, a mission that it had barely prepared for in terms of doctrine pre-war. In addition to linking theatres, the C-47 found itself in the vanguard of combat operations on virtually a daily basis in New Guinea, Burma, the Philippines, the SWPA and China. The importance of these missions, and the dangers faced by crews tasked with carrying them out, is chronicled in numerous first-hand accounts from the aircrew involved in this unique volume on the Allies' favourite transport aircraft of World War 2.

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Zustand: New. Chris Davey (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. 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 doctrine pre-war (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, proving that even if massed airborne invasions were not carried out in the PTO/CBI, all air arms need transports like the C-47. This book examines these popular and vital units. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers BTE9781846030468
