This page contains B-52 Stratofortress books,  new and used books for the B52 Bomber

Click Here is a list of books covering the USAF 's Oldest bomber in the Air Force inventory.  The B-52 Stratofortress has been in service for over 40 years.  The electronics have been upgraded, there have been other modifications but the basic aircraft has never been changed.  Yet, the B-52 Stratofortress is still in front line service. One day I went to Mather Air Force Base in Sacramento and took a close look at the SAC B-52's.  The interesting thing that I noticed is that the fuselage, just forward of the wing, was wrinkled with about twelve inch high waves in the skin.  To me this was incredible, but after talking to a B-52 pilot, he told me that when the wings have a load on them all of the wrinkles come out.  The airplane books listed in this book store are from amazonebooks and Historic Aviation books.     Griffiss Air Force Base in honor of Lt. Col. Townsend Griffiss, the first aviator killed in World War II

Force Drawdown
The end of the Cold War created a golden opportunity for reducing the defense burden and providing taxpayers with a "Peace Dividend." For the United States Air Force, this resulted in drastic reductions: 23% in aircraft inventory, 30% in personnel, and 32% in the number of bases and other major installations. Well-known and long-serving aircraft, such as the A-7D/K, the B-52G, the F-4C/D/E, the F-111A/D, the FB-111A and the SR-71, have been withdrawn from active and reserve components, and some states, such as California, have lost nearly half of their Air Force bases. Illustrated with over 410 color photographs, this new book provides a rich pictorial record of aircraft (including old and new markings) and units which no longer exist, and offers a visual chronicle of organizational changes between 1988-1995. 144 pages, 8" x 11", hardcover.

Flying from the Black Hole: The B-52 Navigator-bombardiers of Vietnam (Hardcover)"

Flying from the Black Hole: The B-52 Navigator-bombardiers of Vietnam

The B-52 Navigator-Bombardiers of Vietnam.
Harder. Detailing the B-52 air war in Vietnam from the perspective of a navigator-bombardier, this book thrusts you into the war's climactic 1972 "Christmas War" bombing missions over Hanoi and Haiphong, examines the history of bombing techniques and the evolution of bomber aircraft, and discusses the B-52's capabilities in the 21st century. 336 pages, 30 B&W photographs, 6"x 9", hardcover.

U.S. Air Force navigators and bombardiers have long labored under the shadow of pilots, their contributions misunderstood or simply unknown to the public. This was especially the case with the B-52 non-pilot aircrews in the Vietnam War. Yet, without them, it would have been impossible to execute nuclear war strike plans or fly conventional bombing sorties. With this book, one of their own reveals who these men were and what they did down in the Black Hole of the B-52 bomber. It is the only work to detail the B-52 air war in Vietnam from the perspective of a navigator-bombardier. The book's opening thrusts the reader into the thick of the war's climactic 1972 Hanoi Christmas bombing, an operation so poorly planned that it nearly became a disaster of epic proportions. The author then offers a history of the development of bombing techniques and the evolution of bomber aircraft, focusing on the Vietnam-era B-52. Final chapters return readers to the eleven-day Christmas War over Hanoi and Haiphong for an insider's view of that defining battle, described by the author as the last massed, heavy bomber raid the world will ever see. The author brings the book to a close with a discussion of the B-52 and its capabilities in the twenty-first century.

Boeing B-47, B-52 and the Avro Vulcan 

(Legends of the Air Series Vol 5) 
Stewart Wilson 
Published 1997 
Wilson. This book looks at the three major western bombers of the Cold War era -  the Avro Vulcan, Boeing B-47 Stratojet and Boeing B-52 Stratofortress. Each one  played a significant role in the "cat and mouse" nuclear deterrent age while two of  them went on to achieve battle honors in more conventional conflicts. Only the  seemingly ageless B-52 remains in service today. 160 pgs., 230 color and B&W photos plus 3-views and color profiles. 8 ¼" x 10 ¾", sfbd.     The fifth volume in the Legends of the Air series, Vulcan, Boeing B-47 & B-52 examines in detail these three remarkable Cold War warriors which were aerodynamic pioneers of the era. It features around 70,000 words of text, hundreds of photographs, 48 specifically commissioned color sideview drawings, technical drawings, specification and production tables, and more.
There had certainly never before been an aircraft of the design concept of the Vulcan with its incredible delta wing, aptly named the 'tin triangle'. Meanwhile across the Atlantic, Boeing had forged ahead with the then black art of high speed swept wing high altitude bomber design that culminated in the B-47 Stratojet, an aircraft that hopefully would be able to outfly the Soviet fighters of the time.
Almost before the B-47 was fully operational though its successor, the incredibly long ranging eight engined B-52 was airborne and preparing to become one of the legendary aircraft of the modern era. In fact, on present plans, this multi war veteran should still be flying in 2030, three quarters of a century after the prototype appeared!

Boeing B-52 : Stratofortress 

Tony Thornborough, Peter E. Davies 
Few airplanes have remained in active service as long as the B-52, which is slated to stay in operation through the turn of the century. Originally designed as a long-range nuclear bomber, the B-52 has seen service in Vietnam and the Gulf War, where its long range and massive bomb load were complemented by the ability to accommodate air-launched missiles. The authors provide several accounts from B-52 pilots and coverage of this magnificent airplane's design and continuing development. Two hunted photographs help document the Stratofortress' distinguished career.

A Documentary History  Walter J. Boyne 

Book Description 
Conceived in 1948, first flown in 1952 and projected still to be in front-line service in the 21st century, the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is one of the most extraordinary aircraft in history. Here is the book to do justice to the story of the development and operational career of  this legendary bomber. The book features a comprehensive history of the development of the U.S. heavy bomber, and intensive discussion of the Boeing B-47 and its effect upon the B-52 design, and perhaps more important than either of these today, the enormous  number of modifications and changes which have kept the aircraft viable. The important contributions of the Strategic Air Command, with  its concepts of the dedicated crew, rigorous training and ceaseless evaluation is well covered, and special attention is given to the B-52's  role in the Vietnamese conflict. The book is reinforced with over 200 photographs and drawings, and includes a comprehensive set of  appendices. The material for the book was derived almost entirely from the primary sources--the men who designed, built, flew,  maintained and improved them and the documents created at the time. The author, a former B-52 and B-47 pilot himself, conveys the  spirit of the B-52--the men and the missions behind the hardware, as well as a superbly detailed analysis of the aircraft itself., over 200 b/w photographs, cut-away drawings, charts, diagrams, Hardcover: 160 pages

Dr. Strangelove, I Presume? - and Other Stories 

by Michael Foot 

In May 1998, India resumed the underground testing of nuclear weapons. Pakistan responded with tests of its own, and all of a sudden the arms race was on again. Not that it ever stoppedChina, Israel, Iran, and Iraq have been pursuing weapons-building programs, and the ultimate horror of nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists draws ever near. In this book, Michael Foot looks back over 40 years of fighting the nuclear menace and surveys the world scene at the close of the 20th century as a warning of the continuing danger of building weapons of mass destruction.

Dr. Strangelove, Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb 

(Twentieth-Century Classics) 
by Peter George 

Book Description 
Dr. Strangelove is one of the boldest anti-war statements of all time--a darkly satirical vision of the Cold War and of military prowess lethally   fueled by human stupidity. The novel's characters are indelible: the commie-hating, redneck pilot, Major Kong; the wildly paranoiac,  nuclear-assault launching General Ripper; and, of course, Dr. Strangelove, the sinister, wheelchair-bound, ex-Nazi scientist, for whom world  destruction is the only bang big enough to satisfy. Peter George co-wrote the screenplay for Dr. Strangelove with Terry Southern and Stanley Kubrick, who directed the celebrated film.   A satirical farce which sends up the idiocies of the Cold War in the 1960s and dramatizes the result of an Arms Race out of control. This book forms the basis for Stanley Kubrick's film, starring Peter Sellers and George C.Scott.    Paperback: 150 pages
