B-29 Photo Combat Diary - Book




The B-29 Superfortress is a four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber designed by Boeing that was flown primarily by the United States toward the end of World War II and during the Korean War. It was one of the largest aircraft to see service in World War II and a very advanced bomber for its time, sporting features such as a pressurized cabin, an electronic fire-control system and remote-controlled machine-gun turrets. Its moniker "Superfortress" was derived from that of its well-known predecessor, the B-17 Flying Fortress. It was the primary aircraft used in the American firebombing campaign against the Empire of Japan in the final months of World War II and was used to carry out the atomic bombings that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

This paperback includes incredibly detailed photos, in color as well as black and white, showcasing this remarkable airplane, the B-29 Superfortress. Photos include the B-29 in the air, on the field, next to soldiers, and sporting nose art.

This book is written by Chester W Marshall and Warren Thompson.
