M42 Duster: A visual History of the U.S. Army's modern mobile anti-aircraft platform. Book by David Doyle. Ampersand. Tactical air power truly came into its own during WWII. Formations of men and equipment on the ground were proven to be highly vulnerable to nimble, bomb-laden strafing aircraft. Engineers and strategist on all sides struggled to developed mobile anti-aircraft weaponry to combat this threat. One of the most powerful, reliable and feared weapons was the Bofors 40mm automatic cannon. Developed by the  Swedish firm AB Bofors, this weapon was used by both the Allies and the Axis during WWII, a testament to its sound design. Complete coverage of the M42 Duster during its development phase and later during its deployment in Vietnam. Over 200 black/white and color photos, extensive walk around photos; 120 pages.
