The Promotional Reprint Company Limited, 1992, Hardback in dust wrapper.
Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs; This edition combines two books first published in 1971 and 1979 by Ian Allan Ltd under the titles Lancaster at War and Lancaster at War 2.
From the cover: More than 50 years since it first flew, the mighty Avro Lancaster still exerts a strong hold over the popular imagination. This classic aircraft, with its four Merlin engines, its two-pronged tail and its multitude of gun-turrets, has an unmistakable outline to anyone interested in aeroplanes. Even though the men who flew in Lancasters are now at retirement age or beyond, the legend lives on for successive generations, who can read about their exploits here.
A quarter-centurys research into archives, personal reminiscences and photos (both official and illicit) has gone into this book a fitting tribute to arguably the most successful and robust heavy bomber of World War II, in its time a most devastating strategic weapon.
