Building the B-17 Flying Fortress by Bill Yenne is a softcover non-fiction book 240 pages in length. This book tells the story of manufacturing Boeing's legendary World War II B-17 bomber by using over 400 original very detailed photos.

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is one of the most fascinating aircraft of World War II, and countless books have been written about every facet of the B-17. However, the story of manufacturing the airplane is usually left to be covered only in the opening chapters of most B-17 books, and there has never been a major work devoted to this important aspect of the airplane's proud history.

Noted author Bill Yenne comprehensively tells this story throughout the use of original photographs, documents, and inside information about how the airplane was actually designed, built, and tested. In addition, the B-17 variants are covered in detail. There are more than 400 images that help explain B-17 manufacturing, many of which have never been seen in any publication. The reader can view the B-17 closeup and in detail in ways not possible before the publication of this book.

Building the B-17 Flying Fortress book is a must for B-17 Flying Fortress enthusiasts, modelers, historians, and pilots everywhere.
