De Havilland Mosquito, Vol. 1: The Night-Fighter and Fighter-Bomber Marques in World War II
Ron Mackay

This first of two volumes on de Havilland’s “Wooden Wonder” covers the night-fighter and fighter-bomber variants of the deadly Mosquito. The development of the multirole Mosquito, from its original bomber and photoreconnaissance operational function to that of a night-fighter and fighter-bomber configuration, was initiated by the latent threat of a renewal of the 1940–41 “Blitz.” Over the ensuing years of WWII, the Mosquito attacked the enemy with sorties across a 24-hour time span, challenging the German Nachtjagd with aerial interceptions, as well as attacks on Luftwaffe airfields. Pinpoint assaults on specialist targets was another aspect of Mosquito fighter-bomber operations, whose destructive effect on the Axis was constantly felt. Also covered are the Mosquito’s operations with the Fleet Air Arm, as well as postwar use. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.
