The B-24 Liberator, produced by four different firms, in five different plants, was built in greater quantities than any other WWII bomber. Operated by the US Army Air Force and US Navy on all fronts during WWII, and supplied to British Commonwealth nations, the 18,482 Liberators took the war to the Axis doorstep. This lavishly illustrated new edition brings to life no less than 20 variants these famed aircraft, as well as their crews. Experimental versions, classic bombers, freighters, tankers, reconnaissance birds, and even the rare gunship version are discussed.
David Doyle's earliest published works appeared in periodicals aimed at the hobby of historic military vehicle restoration. By 1999 this included regular features in leading publications related to that hobby, appearing regularly in U.S., English, French and Polish magazines.
