Osprey Combat Aircraft - Fighters Typhoon Wings of 2nd TAF 1943-45 (MINT/New)

The Typhoon was the RAF’s heavyweight fighter-bomber of choice to support the British and Canadian armies during the invasion of northwest Europe. In this book Chris Thomas extols the great importance of the Typhoon wings in the ultimate Allied victory in Europe. He describes their destruction of German radar in the lead-up to D-Day, the use of large-scale rocket projectiles in land battles and pinpoint attacks on German command and control centers, which crippled the Wehrmacht’s ability to respond quickly to Allied troop movements. But not everything went smoothly for the Typhoon wings. Their epic battle with highly effective German flak installations prompted Air Chief Marshal Sir Harry Broadhurst to remark ‘I suppose that flying one of these aircraft was the most dangerous task the Air Force has ever asked anybody to do’.
