Synopsis: Douglas A-26 and B-26 Invader has often been overshadowed by other aircraft and circumstances. It saw service too late in World War II to lay claim to a distinctive heritage. By Korea, it was seen as a workhorse and just an old "propeller job". But there can be no doubt that the Invader was a fine aircraft - highly effective and popular with its crews. This volume presents the complete story of the Douglas Invader, from its design and early history through wartime service and peacetime uses. A selection of rare photographs are used to illustrate this history of the oft-forgotten but nonetheless impressive A-26 and B-26 Invader.
About the Author: Scott Thompson has enjoyed a peculiar affection for airplanes, particularly old airplanes, for most of his life. He currently flies Learjets for the FAA flight inspection office at Sacramento, California. He has written numerous books and articles on vintage aircraft since 1980.
