Early Jet Bombers 1944 1954 by Leo Marriott Book PDF Summary

The author of Early Jet Fighters: 1944-1954 turns his attention to jet bombers in another stunning pictorial history: “Don't miss out on this one.” —IPMS/USA Using over 200 archive photographs, Leo Marriott gives us a powerful portrait of the first decade in the development of the jet bomber. This was a time of intense technical innovation that transformed the design and capabilities of the bomber and gave birth to a range of classic military aircraft in the USA, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. The photographs take the story from the earliest jet bombers constructed in Germany toward the end of the Second World War to the successful designs both sides depended on through the first phase of the Cold War. The pace of development was rapid and remarkable, from initial prototypes built in Germany—the Arado 234 and the Junkers Ju. 287—to the fleets of advanced jet bombers like the British Canberra and V-bombers, the American B-47 and B-52, and the Soviet Il-28 Beagle and Tu-16 Badger. The images of the prototypes give a fascinating insight into the extraordinary technical challenges and the ambition and inventiveness of the designers and manufacturers who overcame them. “Excellent coverage of a lesser-known aspect of airpower development . . . the wealth of photos makes it enjoyable and interesting.” —Air Power History
