de Havilland Mosquito: The Original Multirole Combat Aircraft covers the creation, design and development of the beloved Mosquito that was built in Britain, Canada and Australia, followed by service during the Second World War in Britain, Europe and Asia. The Mosquito was initially designed as a twin Rolls-Royce Merlin-powered unarmed bomber with a crew of two and was constructed mainly of wood, which was a non-strategic material using unskilled labor. Included in its many additional roles were those of path finder, photo reconnaissance, night fighter, intruder, fighter bomber, electronic counter measures, naval operations and high-speed courier. This essential book features the experiences of designers, construction workers and aircrew. Also, it contains many original contemporary and previously unpublished photographs covering service with RAF squadrons and overseas air forces in its many varied roles. Appendices cover production, specifications of each variant, equipped RAF and RN units and details of surviving Mosquitos.
