Review:

In addition to being the plane which dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, the B-29 Superfortress was the only American heavy bombing aircraft which participated in both World War II and the Korean War. Chester Marshall was a WWII B-29 pilot, and Warren Thompson is a highly regarded military aviation writer. The two have collaborated to produce an incredible photo combat diary containing over 580 b/w and color photos (including a 32 page vintage color section). More importantly, these photos depict the Superfortress in combat in the 1940s against a failing Japanese air force and, on the other hand, in the 1950s against ultra fast and dangerous Russian-built MiG-15 jets. B-29 Photo Combat Diary includes hundreds of air to air shots, battle damage, paint schemes and markings, famous planes and air crews, Air force bases, and more! The hundreds of never before published photos of the Superfortess make the B-29 Photo Combat Diary a valuable and appreciated addition to any aviation history or military studies collection. -- Midwest Book Review
