Boeing B-29 Superfortress (Crowood Aviation Series)   Boeing B-29 Superfortress (Crowood Aviation Series)Crowood Press | 2003 | ISBN: 1861265816 | English | 218 Pages | PDF | 102,5 MB The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was the most advanced and successful of all World War II bombers. Conceived in the late 1930s as a high-speed, high-altitude, long-range "super bomber", the first prototype B-29 did not fly until September 1942. It entered the war in time to make a significant impact, including the dropping of the two atomic bombs that led to the surrender of Japan and the end of the war. This is the complete history of this extraordinarily advanced aircraft, and includes full details of its design and manufacture and service with American and British air forces during World War II, the Korean War and after.   filepostdepositfilesrapidgator
Airmobility, 1961-1971 Lieutenant General John J. Tolson - Airmobility, 1961-1971Department of the Army | 1999 | ISBN: N/A | English | 324 pages | PDF | 33.1 MB The purpose of this study is to trace the evolution of airmobility in the U.S. Army. The integration of aircraft into the organic structure of the ground forces is as radical a change as the move from the horse to the truck, and the process is only beginning. Because this change is not the product of one man or one small group of men but rather a fortunate confluence of technology, tactics, and imagination, proper credit to every responsible individual is impossible. I have tried to identify some of those people who made a major contribution throughout the years. Although Vietnam was the first large combat test of airmobility, air assault operations in Southeast Asia would not have been possible without certain key decisions a decade earlier. This study attempts to trace the most important milestones which led to the eventual formation of airmobile divisions.   Depositfiles
