Description

As the Cold War drew to an end the B-52's role began to change. While the B-52H remained committed to the nuclear strike role, older B-52Gs were increasingly pressed into service in the conventional role; they dropped about one third of the ordance delivered by the USAF during Operation Desert Storm and were a high profile element in the 'shock and awe' tactics of Operation Iraqi Freedom. This book details the recent combat history of this huge aircraft which has proved one of the most effective weapons available to US force commanders.

Author Biography

Jon Lake is the author of several books for Osprey, including volumes on wartime aircraft like the Avro Lancaster and Bristol Blenheim, as well as modern combat aircraft like the MiG-29. One of the founding editors of World Air Power Journal, Lake is a regular contributor to a number of aviation magazines and newspapers. An RAF-trained private pilot Lake has written extensively about post war and contemporary military aviation. Mark has illustrated several books in both the Aircraft of the Aces and Combat Aircraft series. He has recently switched mediums from airbrush to Mac art, and has produced some of the best profiles Osprey has used to date in Combat Aircraft 18: 'B-17 Flying Fortress Units of the Eight Air Force' (part I) and Combat Aircraft 22: 'Mitsubishi Type I Rikko Betty Units of World War 2'.
