The Avro Lancaster

£23.99

Product description

For more than three years during the Second World War the Avro Lancaster heavy bomber represented Britain's major weapon against Nazi Germany, for RAF Bomber Command was the only force available to carry the war continuously, day in day out, night in night out, to the enemy. More than one million men and women were continuously involved in designing, building, flying, servicing and supporting these big bombers which, with their immortal crews won fame for the their devastating attacks on a enemy that had subjugated the European mainland. This book, the most extensive chronicle of a British bomber ever undertaken - of more than half a million words - describes how the Lancaster came into being and how it fulfilled the faith placed upon it.

Book in very good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound. Printed in 1989.
