The B-25 Mitchell was the plane used on the Doolittle 's raid over Japan and is feature in this aviation book store. 

This page covers New B-25 Books and a book review with links to B-25 Movies and B-25 models. It also has a book review for the books and used books are available through the Links.   The North American B-25 Mitchell was one of the best-known medium bombers of World War II, especially remembered for its use in the Doolittle raid on Japan in 1942 and its participation in every major theater of the war. Less known, however, is its continued role in the postwar world, both in military and civilian service. Thousands of war surplus B-25's sat on airfields in 1945, available to the highest bidder. Though most B-25's, as other warplanes, were scrapped and smelted, hundreds did enjoy a postwar career in the civil sector. The B-25 is now one of the most prolific surviving Warbirds, and this book tells the story of the type in the years since the end of World War II. The B-25 has provided diverse and distinguished service in roles from fire-fighting to movie production. This books covers all of these roles and includes hundreds of photographs, detailed appendices, and individual aircraft histories of each of the civilian B-25's.

B-25 Mitchell in Civil Service

The story of the B-25 in civilian service. Thompson lists the individual histories of all these B-25s. It shows FAA listed owners, civilian use as fire bombers, corporate transport, test beds, movie work and their eventual fate. The book should be a valuable tool for the historian and enthusiast alike. Many, many photos both color and black and white.

From the Back Cover
The complete story of the famous North American B-25 Mitchell in over fifty years of civil service is presented in this well-crafted volume. At least two hundred B-25s made the transition from military service to the civil market, many being put to use in Hollywood movies or water bombing forest fires. Dozens became company transports or test beds, while some just languished on forgotten airports. Today, pristine B-25s ply the airways, always drawing a crowd at the air shows and turning heads with the loud bark of twin Wright R-2600s. Here is the civil B-25 story in words and pictures, with pilot interviews and detailed appendices. Included also are individual aircraft histories for each of the B-25s that reached the civil market, a valuable research tool for historian and air show enthusiast alike.

Fly Past Magazine, July 1998

Here are details of executive conversions, research, and development B-25s, air tankers and, of course, of their "new" working life as Warbirds. There is a tribute to Paul Mantz and his airborne cameraships, and lashings of materials on B-25s in firms, including the "full monty" on that outstanding movie, "Catch-22". Lavishly illustrated, the book includes detailed appendices and individual histories of the aircraft.

Captain Ted W. Lawson, Ted W. Lawson / Hardcover / Published 1999 
Hardcover (February 1999)  After Pearl Harbor, America seemed to have lost the war before it had begun. Allied forces were being beaten across the Pacific by the Japanese military juggernaut, and morale was at the breaking point. America desperately needed to strike back at the enemy. For this, a corps of heroic volunteer fliers led by Lt. Col. James H. Doolittle began training to attack the very heart of the Japanese Empire -- Tokyo.
To succeed, the "Tokyo Raiders" would have to launch sixteen fully loaded B-25 twin-engine medium bombers off the deck of the aircraft carrier Hornet -- something never done before -- and land at airfields in China. Through courage and luck, the raid itself went flawlessly. But bad weather, lack of fuel, and darkness worked against many of the pilots -- and for many, escaping China proved even more perilous than the mission....
