The massive Curtiss SB2C Helldiver became the most famous monoplane dive-bomber. It was the backbone of the United States Navy’s offensive in the Pacific from 1943 until the Japanese capitulation. Despite early problems it evolved into an effective and reliable aeroplane.
Packed with rare photographs, this lively and informative book describes the development and operational history of an often neglected aeroplane.
