Résumé:

"This volume chronicles the story of a majestic, four-engined bomber of the propeller era flying perilous combat missions against a sleek, nimble aeroplane of the jet age, the Soviet MiG-15. A 'very heavy' bomber and a sky giant during World War 2 (at that time the B-29 was the world's most advanced combat aircraft), it had been reclassified as a 'medium' bomber by the time North Korea attacked it southern neighbour in 1950. Many of its crew members had fought their war and settled down to raise families and begin careers - only to be recalled to fight another war on a distant Asian peninsula. An irreverent bunch, they painted their B-29s in elaborate colour schemes. Historians have long been intrigued by the unique war they fought, pitting their big and vulnerable bomber against a veritable fleet of MiG-15s. Crammed full of first-hand accounts, profile artwork and action photographs, this volume graphically details the war fought by the B-29 crews in the deadly skies over North Korea, both during daylight and the hours of darkness." --Back cover.
