Beschreibung

The C-47 units of the USAAF were an integral part of some of the most dramatic episodes of the European war: the airborne assaults in North Africa, Sicily, Normandy, southern France, Operation Market Garden and the crossing of the Rhine. The mass fratricide off Sicily, the night drop for D-Day and the Bastogne supply missions are also covered, along with more typical accounts of training, formation flying, airdrops and casualty evacuation missions. This book details an aircraft that remains a popular favourite and an acknowledged design classic, carrying out missions every bit as strategically important and as dramatic for the aircrew as those of the fighters and bombers.

Autorentext

David C Isby is an experienced author and pilot, and has written and edited numerous books and articles. His work on World War 2 military aviation includes 'Jane's at the Controls: How to Fly and Fight in the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress' and the editing of two volumes of Luftwaffe accounts, 'The Luftwaffe Fighter Force: The View From the Cockpit' and 'Fighting the Bombers'. He is the son of a former USAAF C-47 navigator.

An airbrush artist with years of experience, Chris Davey has become Osprey's principal illustrator of RAF aircraft, having produced the profiles for over a dozen books since 1994. His most recent work includes Aircraft of the Aces 38 and Combat Aircraft 31. He is particularly adept at 'big' aircraft like the Halifax and Sunderland.
