The Wellington Bomber Story
The Vickers Wellington was a British twin-engine, long range medium bomber, used as a night bomber in the early years of the Second World War, and the only British bomber to be produced throughout the whole of the war. Martin Bowman combines narrative description and condensed history of construction, combat career and post war service in this colourful history, to tell the complete, concise story of one of the world's most famous aircraft and one of the finest bombers of the Second World War. There is a superlative section of photos of the 'Wimpy', with detailed and expert captions and other material, and many accounts of the aircraft in service and in combat by the men who were there in all theatres around the world - Coastal Command, Bomber Command and 2nd TAF, in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Far East.
