One of the largest and most advanced aircraft to serve in the Second World War, the Boeing B-29 was a heavy bomber designed for high-altitude daytime raids but in practice used in low-altitude night-time incendiary missions, and B-29s were used to drop the atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This well-illustrated book is a detailed history of the 'Superfortress', from design and construction to variants such as the B-50 and copies such as the Soviet Tupolev Tu-4.
