The Operational Perspective on the B-29 in WWII
Reviewed in the United States on April 15, 2020
The most expensive armaments program carried out during World War II was not the development of atomic weapons in the Manhattan Project, but the design and development of the B-29 Superfortress, which would of course carry the two nuclear weapons to Japan that would end the war.
This volume focusses on the operational history of the aircraft, from its design, initial operations in India, and the final phase flying from the Marianas. The operational focus comes at the expense of any detailed description of the technical development of the aircraft.
