B-26 Marauder In Action. Stapfer. US Army Air Forces B-26 Marauders flew 129, 943 sorties over Europe; the B-26 'Flak Bait' was the only American bomber to fly more than 200 missions during WWII. At the Marauder's peak, the USAAF had 1,931 in service against Germany in March 1944, yet only 911 B-26s were lost in combat. Marauders also saw combat over Europe with the Royal Air Force, the South African Air Force, and the Free French Air Force. Between November 1940 and March 1945, 5,266 B-26s were built by the two Martin factories in Baltimore, Maryland, and Omaha, Nebraska. Many senior pilots of the 22nd Bomb Group in Australia, the pioneering outfit of the Marauder, recall the B-26 as "the best damn airplane the Air Force ever had." This book takes a look at the production development of the B-26 Marauder with more than 100 photos, color profiles, and detailed line drawings. 60 pages
