Diving vertically at the target, in the same direction the bombs will take, was an incredible bombing technique developed by the British and put into action in World War II. Bombers would dive and release the bombs very close to the target at high speed, with high risk, to accurately bomb relatively small and/or moving targets with ease. This riveting and highly detailed account of high speed aerial combat is the result of 40 years of intensive research and provides a complete history of the formidable dive bombers from World War II. Containing an unparalleled collection of data on infamous aircraft, "Dive Bomber" is the ultimate guide to that daring machine, enhanced by numerous maps, photographs, tables and diagrams, providing the most accurate and comprehensive guide ever written on this subject.
