The Story of the Consolidated B-32 Bomber

This book details the development, testing, production and brief combat life of the B-32 Dominator, a little known heavy bomber, created as a competing design to the B-29 Superfortress.

Although not produced in great numbers, this bomber was completed, and briefly served in combat in the Pacific Theater with the 312th Bombardment Group (312th BG) "Roarin' 20's", 386th Bombardment Squadron (386th BS), the only unit to ever fly the bomber in combat.

The book includes excellent photographs, drawings, schematic diagrams and color artwork depicting B-32 "The Lady is Fresh", that flew combat.

Chapter Appendix covers B-32 production by serial numbers, performance, bomb loads and combat missions.

This book is an outstanding source for information on this type and has been reprinted in sixth editions.
