Pacific Profiles Vol 15 Allied Bombers: B-26 Marauder series Australia, New Guinea and the Solomons 1942-1945

Michael Claringbould, full colour, fully illustrated, 250 x 176mm, 104 pages, Avonmore Books, 2024. ISBN 9780645700497 RRP $36.95 DUE JUNE 2024

The Pacific Profiles series presents the most accurate WWII profiles of Allied and Japanese aircraft which served throughout the Australia, New Guinea and Solomons theatres. This Volume 15 covers the B-26 and US Navy JM Marauder series which served in these theatres from their first delivery to Australia in April 1942 until the war's end. Marauders served with a total of six USAAF bomber squadrons, including the reformed 19th BS Silver Fleet, whilst US Navy JM-1 and JM-2 variants were operated by utility squadrons from March 1944 onwards.

Most profiles are presented for the first time, alongside markings derivations, including unit heraldry and codes. This volume bridges vast gaps in accurate Marauder markings profiles in these theatres, especially those which served with the Thirteenth Air Force and USN. Each profile is supported by photos and/or documentation, along with a brief history of each aircraft. Wide-ranging primary reference material is cited including assignment data, wreck reports, squadron records, colour photography, maintenance logs, diaries and factory markings specifications. A brief summary history of each unit and associated markings rationale accompanies the text.
