The Handley Page Victor was the third and final aircraft in Britain's V-bomber fleet, built to carry the nuclear deterrent during the Cold War. Built during the 1950s and 1960s, the bomber was designed to fly higher and faster than contemporary fighter aircraft so that it could penetrate Soviet airspace with its deadly load unopposed. In later years, it switched to a conventional role and saw service during the Falklands War in the 1980s and 1991 Gulf War before withdrawal later that year. This book on the Handley Page Victor V-Bomber covers design and development and parts of the type's service history. Numerous photos are published here for the first time.
