From the cover: “I believe that the Lancaster was the greatest single factor in winning the war, said Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Harris, wartime commander of RAF Bomber Command.
During the Second World War, RAF Lancaster bombers took the war into the very heart of Hitler’s Third Reich, pounding its cities and industrial centres with more than 600,000 tons of bombs.
Lancasters flew some of the most daring bomber operations of the war including the intrepid daylight attack on the MAN diesel engine factory in Bavaria in 1942; the legendary dams raid in 1943; and the attacks on the German battleship Tirpitz in 1944.
Surprisingly, of the 7,377 Lancasters built only two survive today in an airworthy condition — one in Britain, the other in Canada.
Produced with the full cooperation of the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the Haynes Avro Lancaster Manual gives a rare and fascinating insight into how the Lancaster is constructed, how it is flown and operated, and the all-important details of how it is serviced and maintained to keep it airworthy.”
