The Boeing B-17 is one of the most readily identifiable aircraft of World War Two. Known as the Flying Fortress, due to its formidable defensive armament, it was still in front-line service at the end of WW2, ten years after its conception.
The author tells the full story of the Fort from its early beginnings through to its seven major variants and in doing so unearths new information onthe B-17. With over two hundred historic photographs, this is a fitting tribute to one of the finest aircraft of World War Two.
