MTO Mediterranean Theater of Operations , Steve Pace presents the B-25 as the backbone of the US Army Air Forces' medium-bomber force. In addition to tracing the aircraft's operations across North Africa after Operation Torch, the book gives an accounting of the B-25's employment by Ninth and Twelfth Air Forces from Torch to the invasion of Italy. In doing so, the author covers the operations of the five bomb groups (12th, 310th, 319th, 321st, and 340th) as well as the 57th Bomb Wing, which was equipped with Mitchells. The firsthand accounts make for a pleasant and informative read. This exceptionally well illustrated volume includes over 30 great color plates and over 100 black-and-white photographs, as well as both color and black-and-white nose art--absolutely crucial to any volume on the B-25. B-25 Mitchell Units of the MTO is a must-read for people interested in this aircraft and its role in the Mediterranean theater of operations
