Originally designed as a bomber for the Royal Air Force, the de Havilland Mosquito is one of the iconic aircraft of the Second World War. It undertook a range of duties unsurpassed by any other military aircraft - day bomber, high altitude night bomber, fighter-bomber, day and night fighter, photo-reconnaissance, anti-shipping, civil mail carrier and pathfinder. Enshrined in history as the 'wooden wonder' it was loved and respected by both its flight crew and opponents respectively. Author Mark Nelson tells the Mosquito’s story and that of the men who flew it.
