Synopsis:

Inside the gunners' turrets of World War II's finest fighter aircraft

In this superb book, aviation experts Donald Nijboer and Dan Patterson expose the firing positions of World War II aircraft and show the gunners' turrets in which so many young airmen fought and died. Here are the stories from veteran gunners that describe in spirited detail what it was like to fly in and fight from World War II's classic aircraft.

Gunner provides documented accounts of men who learned to shoot at moving targets from a moving platform, facing the terrible odds of survival in this highly dangerous combat environment. Aircraft profiled include:

  • Boeing B-17 Superfortress
  • Messerschmitt ME 410
  • Avro Lancaster
  • Grumman TBF Avenger
  • Douglas A-20 Havoc
  • Ilyushin IL-2 Shturmovik
  • Bristol Blenheim
