Book Review – B-25 Mitchell Walk Around

B-25 Mitchell Walk Around
David Doyle
Squadron Signal Publishing
2012

What it’s about:

A detailed walk around of the famous World War II bomber, well illustrated with photographs.

What I liked about the book:

  • Color profile illustrations of aircraft.
  • Plenty of technical detail.
  • High-quality photography of several restored aircraft.

What could have been done better:

  • The book would have benefited from a few full-page page images of different parts of the interior, taken with a wide-angle lens. There are several interior photos that to me were difficult to understand exactly what I was seeing and where it was located, because of the lack of context. Some larger photos taken with a wide angle lense would have solved that problem.

Summary:

Overall, this is a high-quality publication at a reasonable price. If the subject matter interests you, you should definitely buy it. Better yet, buy it with its companion volume in the In Action series B-25 Mitchell in Action. For less than $40, you can have a detailed understanding of this important aircraft of World War II.

Rating:

4 stars out of a possible 5.
