New from Squadron/Signal Books USA is the B-25 Mitchell in Action by David Doyle. Very possibly the most significant twin engine bomber of WWII is beautifully showcased in this new “in action” series book.

72 pages with artwork by Don Greer, this publication contains more than 200 photos (80 of them in full color), most of them original period photographs. This aircraft is covered in detail by taking it from the North American Aviation Prototype (NA 40) to the final production run of the B-25J, in use for some time after the close of the war. USN and USMC versions (PBJ series) are also well covered within, as are B-25’s in Foreign Service used by Allied Air Forces at that time. Also contained are several color profiles of the B-25.

As a point of interest, this is the second time I’ve been given the opportunity to review an “in action” product, and I must tell you that these “second edition” versions of these books are head and shoulders above the previously issued versions and well worth adding to one’s aviation library. Many thanks to Squadron Shop for the review sample.

Most highly recommended.
