Merriam Press World War 2 In Review Series. First eBook Edition 2017. This issue provides coverage of the B-24 Liberator bomber. The B-24 was used in World War II by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean, and CBI Theaters. The B-24 provided excellent service in a variety of roles thanks to its large payload and long range. This pictorial includes a concise history of the Consolidated B-24 Liberator heavy bomber, as well as coverage of the XB-41 long range escort, C-87 Liberator Express, and C-109 fuel tanker models. Also included are two articles: “Operation Tidal Wave,” the low-level strike against the Ploesti oil fields in Romania on 1 August 1943, and “Flying the B-24 Bomber Was No Picnic.” 407 B&W/color photos/illustrations.
