SMI LIBRARY No. 8
B-17 Flying Fortress in Combat over Europe
Tomasz Szlagor


The B-17 Flying Fortress epitomized the American airpower for most of the Second World War. It was by far the most effective weapon to carry out the strategic, daylight bombing campaign in Europe. The battles fought by B-17 crews during raids on such tough targets as Schweinfurt, Berlin or Ploesti were nothing short of epic. The combined effort of the two US Army Air Forces, 8th and 15th, stationed in England and Italy respectively, eventually denied the enemy the means to wage war and sealed the fate of the European Axis powers and their allies. This 92 page book includes 130 b&w and 11 colour archive photos, colour profiles of 6 aircraft, as well as a decal sheet printed by Cartograf which contains 1:32 and 1:72 individual markings for the following planes:
- B-17G-25-BO; s/n 42-31678, 'Little Patches', coded 'LL-L' of 401st BS / 91st BG,
- B-17F-50-BO; s/n 42-5360, 'Old Faithful', coded 'VK-N' of 358th BS / 303rd BG.

Dear britmodellers,

If you would like to order the new titles directly from Kagero, they are now readily available except the Takao book. The release date of the latter was postponed.

Best regards,

Maciej
