The Douglas A-26/B-26 Invader has often been overshadowed by other aircraft and circumstances. It saw service too late in WW2 to lay claim to a distinctive heritage. By Korea, it was seen as a workhorse and just an old ‘propeller job’. But there can be no doubt that the Invader was a fine aircraft – good looking, highly effective and popular with its crews.

This volume presents the complete story of the Douglas Invader, from its design and early history through wartime service and peacetime uses. A selection of rare photographs are used to illustrate this history of the oft-forgotten but nonetheless impressive A-26 and B-26 Invader.
