Battling flak and enemy fighters over the skies of Europe during World War II, the US Army Air Force Martin B-26 Marauder bomber named Flak-Bait completed a remarkable 201 combat missions, a feat that made it the highest mission scorer of any Allied medium or heavy bomber. For many years the author has held a special interest in the B-26, and especially those of the 387th Bomb Group. It was during his first visit to the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC, over 20 years ago, where Flak-Bait's nose section was on display, that he became interested in what the aircraft had achieved during her illustrious career. Using official World War II era records, the result is a day-by-day account of the missions it flew, crew lists, flight routes, and weapons dropped, and records any comments made by the various crews during their post mission debriefing. A special photo section features the current restoration display of Flak-Bait at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Washington, DC.
