Styling has illustrated many titles for Osprey including the Aircraft of the Aces, Combat Aircraft and Elite Units series since 1994. Now based in Bridport, Dorset, he creates accurate illustrations of any chosen aircraft type. He produces some of the best artwork available to Osprey. The author lives in Dorset, UK.
"Author Mark Styling has put together a superb book that covers the story of Marauder operations, from its early operations with the 319th BG in Algeria (where just 17 of 57 aircraft that left the US arrived in full operational condition) to the overwhelming numbers that helped end the war from bases in Southern France and Northern Italy. The amount of research done by the author is exceptional and just about every B-26 of note is mentioned by both subtype, serial and aircraft name." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (December 2008)
