About this book
A 'biography' of the WWII bomber, written by a 617 'Dam Busters' Squadron pilot. Based on interviews with WWII aircrew, ground crew and their German adversaries. Focuses on both the operational history of the plane, and on the history of those who flew it.
It is no accident that the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight consists primarily of three aircraft types, the Spitfire, the Hurricane and the Lancaster. The Lancaster has carved its place in history in its own unique way. This title focuses on its operational history, and on the crews who flew and maintained Lancs.
