Название: Great American Bombers of WW II: B-17 Flying Fortress
Автор: William N. Hess, Frederick A. Johnsen, Chester Marshall
Размер: 185,2 МБ
During World War II, the B-17 made its mark in Europe with daring and devastating bombing runs over the heart of German industry. Fans of the B-24 consider it the most important bomber of the War for its large payload and versatility. And the B-29, with its pressurized cabin and remote-control gun turrets, was the ultimate strategic bomber, flying higher, faster, and farther than any of its counterparts, making it the logical choice for the War-ending flights over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Издательство: Vendome Press
Размер: 301,2 МБ
The 300 photos in this Soviet-prepared volume reflect all aspects of that nation's experiences during World War II. They mesh effectively with the text, which is predictably patriotic but not stridently so. Though there are numerous photos of military history, this is not a military history per se but, rather, an account of a nation under severe stress. Women's roles, for example, are amply recorded. This excellent collection uniquely captures its subject. In its words and photos lurk the character and values of an extraordinary people.
