"From the variety of its roles, the multiplicity of its armament and the range of theatres and air forces in which it served, the North American B-25 Mitchell has a high claim to be the most versatile aircraft of World War 2, certainly on the allied side, if not on both sides. It began its legendary career by bombing Tokyo as a 'carrier-borne' bomber in the celebrated Doolittle raid of April 1942. The full story of that raid is retold in this book, as are many others of other theatres and other roles until the B-25 went back to Japan in March 1945. Here too are many anecdotes of Mitchells throughout WWII and each of these anecdotes is brilliantly illustrated by a selection of photographs, many of which, coming from private collections, have not been published before. " Over 100 b/w photos. (S-8-C).

From Wikipedia: "The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theater of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades. The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U. S. Military aviation. By the end of its production, nearly 10, 000 B-25s in numerous models had been built. These included a few limited variations, such as the United States Navy's and Marine Corps' PBJ-1 patrol bomber and the United States Army Air Forces' F-10 photo reconnaissance aircraft."; 79 pages.
