|Douglas B-18 Bolo
The Ultimate Look: from Drawing Board to U-boat Hunter
This book begins with the background about the development of the B-18.
Chapters are devoted to B-18 operations in Hawaii, prior to the war, Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941 and afterwards. Also, operations in the Philippines and Alaska. The remainder of the book is devoted to the B-18 involved with anti-submarine patrols for U-Boats, off the United States.
Later chapters are devoted to B-18s exported to the RCAF and other nations, and the upgraded B-32 that saw limited production.
One of the book's strengths is large, detailed photos depicting the Pima Air Museum restored example B-18B Bolo 38-593, including the cockpit and various crew compartments, plus a brief overview of its 2,400 hour restoration. Plus, brief profiles on the other museum examples of the B-18 in the United States.
