Description

The Avro Lancaster was the RAF's most successful heavy bomber of the Second World War. “Lancs” dropped 608,612 tons of bombs in 156,000 sorties in the period 1942-1945. Some of these missions were incredibly daring - such as the famous “dam busters” raid on the Ruhr valley in May 1943.

This fascinating pocket manual, compiled from a wealth of authentic period sources, including pilot's notes and other Air Ministry publications, and supplemented with plans and diagrams, provides a unique guide to this awe-inspiring aircraft.
