Day-by-day, night-by-night, these bombers pounded away at the Japanese across the Pacific. In their own words and with photographs, veterans recall their service flying combat missions against enemy garrisons on Bougainville and New Ireland, and later in the dramatic rocket and ground-strafing attacks in support of American forces fighting in the Philippines. Leatherneck Bombers includes over 170 photographs and maps, a detailed list of individual squadron aircraft and personnel losses, and all known PBJs assigned to units overseas.
