Bombs Away!
A History of the 70th Bombardment Squadron (M) in Early World War II

This book is a history of the 42nd Bombardment Group, 70th Bombardment Squadron that operated the B-26 Marauder. During the Pacific War, the squadron served at Hickam Field, Fiji and Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. This is also the story of the ground echelon of the squadron which served with distinction, under adverse conditions, for twenty-five months on various remote islands of the South Pacific. This history traces the Squadron from its inception in January 1941 through the months of the Pacific War. The story will involve pre-war activity, operations in the U.S. subsequent to Pearl Harbor, activities in Fiji and combat operations from various remote islands in the South Pacific. The first edition was printed in 1998. The second edition was re-printed in 2017.
