Convair B-36 Peacemaker: A Photo Chronicle explores the history of the
Strategic Air Command's biggest bomber that helped keep the peace during the
early years of the Cold War. The six-engined B-36 - later ten engine - was the
first intercontinental bomber that could fly across continents, hit its target,
and return to base unrefueled - long a dream of air planners. Presented here
through the use of historical photographs is the history of this magnificent
airplane, from its origin just prior to America's entry into World War II in
1941, to its final days in 1959 when its last missions were flown. This book
will give the reader a concise overview of the story of the Peacemaker in the
1940s-1950s. A serial number listing is included, as well as a list of all ten
B-36 bomb wings.
