Description

In the mid-1930s the Douglas DC-2 opened a new chapter in modern-era air transport. Although its military versions did not reach widespread service, compared to that of civil aeroplanes, they successfully served with the US Army Air Corps before the outbreak of WWII and also during the war. The Douglas C-33/39s were primarily used for cargo transport, but could also be equipped to carry personnel or wounded soldiers. A comprehensive 4+ monograph describes not only the civil DC-2s, but also gives account of the military C-33 and C-39s.
