About this title


U.S. Aerial Armament of WW-II: Volume 2 is the sixth book in William Wolf's World War II aviation "Ultimate Look" series that has included works on the B-29; B-32; B-18; B-25; and U.S. Aerial Armament of WW-II: Volume 1: Guns, Ammunition, and Turrets. In Volume 2: Bombs, Bombsights, and Bombing, the second of three volumes (Volume 3 will concern Air-Dropped, Air-Launched, and Secret Aerial Weapons), author Wolf again offers a comprehensive; meticulously researched volume that previously has not appeared in WW-II aviation literature. The author used his extensive personal 16,000 book and magazine library, three mile microfilm collection, and rare ordnance and training manuals as basis for researching this book. The chapters included in this volume are: Development of Bombs and Bombing Theory and Strategy; an extensive chapter on Conventional Bombs and Fuses; Bomb Handling and Release and Control Mechanisms; an extensive chapter on Conventional and Radar Bombsights; The Bombardier; Bombing Missions Described; Bombing Tactics; Effects of Bombs; Miscellaneous Ordnance; and a Glossary; Bibliography; and Index. The result is truly the "Ultimate Look" on the subject and is presented in 320 pages of 215,000 words of text augmented by 425 photos, drawings, and charts. This definitive book is a must for the WW-2 aviation enthusiast, historian, and modeler.
