The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was the Second World War's most numerous Allied heavy bomber and - at over 18,000 made - the most produced American military aircraft. It was operated by several Allied air forces (including the USAAF and the RAF) and navies, attaining a distinguished war record on operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean and China-Burma-India theatres. Graeme Douglas has been granted privileged access to several airworthy examples of the B-24 in the USA to give an unrivalled insight into the construction, operation and maintenance of this classic heavy bomber.

Graeme Douglas has almost 30 years of experience working on the B-17. He spent 15 years as a part-time volunteer restoring B-17 Mary Alice at Duxford, and later as ground crew on the privately-owned B-17 Sally B. He is also the author of the Haynes Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress Manual, Haynes Consolidated B-24 Liberator Manual and Haynes Focke-Wulf Fw190 Manual. He lives in Essex.
