Lancaster : Reap the Whirlwind
The narrative description and condensed history of the Lancaster's construction, combat career and post-war service, bought together to tell the complete, concise history of the world's most famous aircraft of all time and undoubtedly the finest bomber of World War 2. A superlative colour section of 150 photos of the BBMF Lancaster and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Lancaster (the only two Lancasters still flying) are featured in what is a unique photo section to complement the 150 mono contemporary images, many of which have never been published before. Appendix sections, detailed and expert captions and other material complement the exciting narrative which includes a special chapter on the Dam Busters to coincide with the release of the new movie by Peter Jackson and the unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in Hyde Park, London.
