Manufacturer Description

Flying from and between bases in China and India, the B-25s bombed every type of Japanese target during World War 2 in the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theater, ultimately dropping more bombs than their larger four-engined B-24 Liberator brethren.

Mitchell bombers took on the task of disrupting the flow of Japanese supplies to the frontlines at medium ranges, bombing supply centers, railway depots, and bridges. It was in this last capacity that the B-25 established a unique role as a "bridge-buster." This provided significant support for the British Fourteenth Army as they advanced into Burma.

Fully illustrated with detailed cutaway artwork, this book tells the important, yet forgotten story of B-25 operations in the CBI Theater and the important role that this aircraft played on the road to victory.
