From the cover: “There is no name more redolent of Britain’s wartime struggle against Nazi Germany than the classic four-engined bomber, the Avro Lancaster. From its introduction to operation in 1942 through to the end of the war, the Lancaster was at the forefront of Bomber Command’s aerial onslaught against Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe.
The Lancaster was involved in many of the RAF’s most successful and audacious operations, such as the famous ‘Dambusters’ raid and the action that led to the sinking of the Tirpitz, as well as the regular night time raids that wrought so much destruction on German cities and industry.
More than 20 years ago Mike Garbett and Brian Goulding first paid tribute to the Avro Lancaster in Lancaster at War. This pioneering book, which brought together first-hand accounts and historic photographs, was the first of a series of books that has helped to keep the reputation of the Lancaster alive. In this, their latest contribution to the series, the authors have again delved into their files to bring a further fascinating selection of stories from those who flew and worked with the Lancaster.”
