Mosquito: Menacing the Reich: Combat Action in the twin-engine wooden wonder of World War II - Martin Bowman

The memories of Sergeant (later Flight Lieutenant DFC) Mike Carreck who was an observer with 105 Squadron when he first laid eyes on the new de Havilland Mosquito. This was an aircraft that would prove itself to be one of the most versatile and revered aircraft to fly with the RAF in World War II.

This book is full of first-hand accounts from the crews that flew the `Mossie' in its roles as a bomber, long-range reconnaissance and low-level strike aircraft.

The author has gathered together many of the most exciting operational reports that cover the period from the type's introduction until the end of World War II. The text is interwoven with the background history of the personnel and squadrons, the purpose of the operations undertaken and their often devastating results.
