In this exciting title, the author tells the story of the aircraft, De Hav Mosq, and those who flew it. Enshrined in history as the "wooden wonder," the De Havilland Mosquito was arguably the most beautiful aircraft ever built. Loved and respected by its flight crew and opponents, respectively, it is one of the iconic aircraft of World War 2. The original conception of the Mosquito was unusual-to make use of the spare capacity in Britain's furniture-making industry to construct a wooden aircraft-but once the aircraft took to the skies it was an immediate sensation. It could carry a huge range of hardware yet keep speed and maneuverability and its construction gave it ruggedness and an ability to bring its crew home. Combining 150 superb historical and present-day photographs with in-depth and descriptive content, this title is sure to be a hit among aviation enthusiasts worldwide.

This is a coffee table book containing a generic overview history of de Havilland Mosquito operations, both military and civil. It is liberally illustrated with excellent sideview artwork of various examples along with numerous colour photographs. An ideal gift for your favorite veteran or family member/friend with interest in aviation.

Mosquito from Mark Nelson is another great publication about this superb aircraft which once made angry many people in Germany including the Commander of Luftwaffe and Adolf Hitler.
The British used the splendid Merlin engines and connected them with a wooden airframe which allowed them to produce a lightweight and agile fighter.
The strongest points of this book are definitively photographs of Mosquito aircraft. On 130 pages the author gathered some superb shots presenting not only the whole aircraft but also close ups on certain parts.
If someone is interested in technical details this book isn't for him. There aren't many tables or graphs, but this doesn't mean that this book isn't interesting. It's not for everybody. If you are starting your adventure with Mosquito it is a good book for you.
The first chapter describes the beginnings of Mosquito showing the reader how the airplane was born. The second chapter describes the production. A nice addition in this chapter is a Merlin cutaway drawing closeups on various parts of the airplane.
The next chapters shows us the use of the airplane as a reconnaissance aircraft, fast bomber, night fighter. The biggest part of the book presents various missions performed by Mosquito aircraft crews in Europe. At the end of the book we get to know the aircraft which still can be seen in Museums or while flying on airshows.
Great to read.
