Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a cheap, very poor reproduction of the original Bowman book. The original hardcover Crowood Press, (Crowood Aviation Series) was published in Britain in 1998. It was printed on slick, heavy, coated paper stock with a good lines per inch resolution for very good photo reproduction. The paperback 2005 edition looks like they shot the plates off of the printed book rather than the original films. (Pre-digital I assume.) The photos are blotchy, blocked up and difficult to see any details. (Similar to poor copier copies.) The paper it is printed on is of much poorer quality. Some of the photos were even printed upside down, though they were correct in the original hardcover. Frankly, skip this one and look for the original, maroon-colored cover showing a painting of a British Liberator MkI attacking a sub and a photo looking down on a US B-24D. It is far superior in quality and worth hunting for. Mr. Bowman's writing is topnotch. Though I have a few quibbles, overall the original is an excellent overview of this misunderstood and overshadowed aircraft that was one of the best bombers of the war. I returned the copy I bought for my father and found the original edition.
