    This is the most in depth book about the aircraft turrets I have ever found. I found the large section on the development of the B-29 turrets and computing system very interesting as well. The cost was more staggering than most people know and many hurdles were overcome to make it work. Great book resource! Keith

    I cannot imagine being curled up in one of those ball turrets, watching tracers zipping towards me...
    Thanks for posting.
