Jerry Scutts has worked in the field of aviation publishing since the late 1960s, writing over 40 books that have covered a broad spectrum of subject matter ranging from US Navy floatplane fighters in World War 2 to the exploits of the USAF's Phantom IIs over Vietnam. His specialist areas are the Luftwaffe and the US Army Air Forces in World War 2, and he originally appeared on the Osprey list as long ago as 1977, when he wrote the second volume in the now much sought after Air Cam Air War series. Many of the jacket illustrations in this series were also painted by him. Jerry has been a regular contributor to Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces series since its inception in 1994. The author lives in London, England.
"This is the first book to focus exlusively on the A-26's missions in World War II... The concise, authoritative text is supported by at least 30 original color artworks, specially commissioned scale drawings, and the best archival photography from around the world." --Flying Models (January 2011)"This is a great book that will present you a nice story about A-26, and I can highly recommend it to all interested in aviation history and in war birds in general." --Darko Mladenovic, www.letletletwarplanes.com"There are plenty of reasons to buy this publication, most importantly is the limited amount of information available for the A-26 in both the ETO and PTO. This is a nice little one-stop shop. The model builder will be inspired by the photos and the profiles. I really enjoyed this book and, also, many of the other ones from the series. You can't go wrong here." --IPMS/USA
