B-25 Mitchell Units of the CBI
Author(s): Edward M. Young
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.
"Students of the B-25, the CBI, the 10th and 14th Air Forces, and interdiction should be enthusiastic about this book. It should fill more pieces into the CBI air war puzzle." - Model Ship Wrights
"If you are interested in the CBI history or interested in the B-25 service during War World II, this book is an excellent source of data. And with 30 color profiles, an inspiration for your next model. Highly Recommended." - IPMS / USA Reviews
