The story of one of the most magnificent aircraft of the Cold War - America's six-engined Mach 3 bomber prototype: the XB-70 Valkyrie.
Peter E Davies is a specialist on Cold War American combat aircraft, having written or co-written more than 20 books on the subject, including the standard reference work on US Navy and Marine Corps Phantom II operations, Gray Ghosts. He is based in Bristol, UK.
"Peter E. Davies provides a good introduction to the North American XB-70 Valkyrie with an easy to read style. I especially appreciated his use of first person accounts throughout the book as it puts the reader in the driver's seat. I ravaged the 80 pages in one night, staying up quite late." - IPMS / USA"Extended captions and informative sidebars illumine the account. Color and B&W photos, color profiles, interior details, and action illustrations further augment the effort. And a selected bibliography and index neatly tie things up.
