Bombers of the 20th Century
by Jim Winchester

At the beginning of World War I a bomber was an ordinary Aeroplane from which small bombs were dropped over the side from an open cockpit. During World War II they developed into all-weather, day and night fighting machines that bristled with defensive machine-guns and could transport and deliver a 14,000 lb. bomb at a range of 1,000 miles. By the end of the century, bombers could fly at Mach 2 and some were almost invisible to radar. The transformation of the bomber from being a “bit of a nuisance” to the men in the WWI trenches to that of a delivery system that could take out a small country with a single bomb is remarkable. This is a concise, detailed and color illustrated guide to the most famous bombers of the 20th Century. It includes aircraft from around the world in chronological order so that every period can be compared. Includes: specifications, powerplants, dimensions, performance, weights and armament.
