In September 1942 the British public was told of the new aircraft which would save them from Luftwaffe terror raids and would be equipped with AI radar Ð the de Havilland Mosquito; the aircraft which came to be known as the wooden wonder. This fascinating book tells the story of these Mossies and their crews and of the heroic work they did in preventing the Luftwaffe from inflicting even greater terror and damage on the civil population. Superbly illustrated, Mosquitopanik! is a graphic and comprehensive account of the fighter activities of this legendary aircraft from 1942 until the end of the War.

Usually a WWII-era multirole aircraft (for example, German Dornier Do 217, American Douglas A-20, or Soviet Petlyakov Pe-2) was well in one role and worse in another. But the Wooden Wonder – British De Havilland Mosquito – became a real exclusion and a true multirole plane. Martin Bowman’s well-researched and thorough done Mosquitopanik! proves – it was the best in its every role.
Through deadly low-level strikes, Ranger and Intruder missions’ accounts as well as crewmembers’ (both Allied and German) personal memoirs reader is led to a simple conclusion – without Mosquito fast bombers, fighter-bombers and night fighters and their ‘pressed on regardless’ crews the way to the victory for RAF Bomber Command and Second Tactical Air Force would had been far more long and costly.
