De Havilland's Mosquito is a legendary aeroplane. Conceived in 1938 as a high speed unarmed bomber, its adaptability saw it used as a nightfighter, bomber, photo-reconnaissance aeroplane, high speed courier aircraft, target marker and anti-shipping strike aircraft. Built mainly from wood, the design team produced a masterpiece.
This book tells the story of its design and development, its operational use with both the RAF and USAAF, and of its production in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Appendices list the many variants, production totals and nightfighter kills. Fully illustrated throughout with many rare and previously unpublished photographs, Mosquito is a fine record of a superb aeroplane.
