    When I am reading about World War II I always run across different weapons, tanks, and aircraft used in battles and I need to know more about them. I always turn to Osprey books as great reference material on these subjects. Robert Dorr in correlation with Osprey Combat Aircraft has given us this book on B-29 Superfortress Aircraft. Of the 3,970 built only 26 survived in complete form today. It didn't enter combat until 1944 but played a decisive role in the defeat of Japan. With a wingspan of 141 feet and length of 99 feet it was capable of carrying up to a 10,000 pound fat bomb. Along with more information then I want to digest I got a great story about this formable foe. For the casual historian and model builder the book also give 16 pages of color artwork including close up nose art of this airplane. Dorr's book is a comprehensive, nicely illustrated volume on the career of a mighty warbird.

    This was a good short primer on the B-29’s use during World War 2. The information was fairly bare bones and included stories from men who had flown the bombers. If looking for a short history covering development and then combat of the B-29 this is the book for you. It is heavily illustrated and has a center section with color drawings of several wartime aircraft. The history of the aircraft depicted are later covered in an appendix. This book would be a good resource for modelers hoping for some details of the planes, due to the afore mentioned illustrations. I found the lack of a bibliography and proper citations troubling though. While the author does cite the author, and work for the first citation, he does not give page numbers nor editions. It was because of this that I knocked it a star.
