Japanese Phosphorus Bombs

Japanese Phosphorus Bombs
Japanese Phosphorus bombs being dropped on a formation of Consolidated B-24 Liberators. The picture is labeled as showing a raid on Iwo Jima on 14 October 1944, but the bomb appears not to have entered active use at that date.
 Consolidated B-24 Liberator (Crowood Aviation), Martin W. Bowman. A well balanced book that begins with a look at the development history of the B-24, before spending nine out of its ten chapters looking at the combat career of the aircraft in the USAAF, the US Navy and the RAF.
