B-29 Gunner's Information File

Description:
 
Details:
This is the information manual given to B-29 fire control gunners of the USAAF during WWII. The 5" wide x 7.25" tall information "file" has a leatherette covers which snaps shut over the pages and six small ring binders, which allow the file to be updated with new supplements as developments occurred in the General Electric "Central-Station Fire Control System". It was the "CFC" which allowed the "blister gunners" in the empenage of the B-29 to remotely control virtually all of the .50 caliber machine gun turrets which armed the B-29. The CFC was an early form of analog computer and one of the most-complicated weapons systems to be developed during the War. No wonder the B-29 was the most expensive aircraft of WWII, with a total expenditure of $3 Billion in 1940 dollars, a BILLION more than the atomic bomb which the B-29s delivered to their targets. The "GIF" is a treasure trove of information for the collector and living historian (see images below of representative pages from the GIF). All of the pertinent pages are present and the manual is about 3/4" thick. The manual is in very good overall condition and the pages are not brittle or disintegrating. Although I'm confident that the buyer will really like this manual, the buyer will have my usual five-day right of inspection and return privilege.
