{detailed description}The second of two volumes published in Osprey's Combat Aircraft series on the RAF's most effective heavy bomber of World War 2, this book details the combat career of the Lancaster in the final 18 months of the conflict in Europe. Author Jon Lake examines the aircraft's role in Bomber Command's massive nocturnal bombing campaign, starting with the less than successful night blitz of Berlin in late 1943. The tactical part played by the Lancaster in the months leading up to the D-Day landings is also evaluated, as is the development and deployment of specialist bombs such as the Tallboy and Grand Slam. Supporting the author's detailed text are more than 100 action photographs sourced from official and private archives and 34 specially created profiles by leading 'big bomber' artist Chris Davey, many of the latter featuring aircraft never previously seen in colour artwork. This volume is a must for aviation historians and Lancaster enthusiasts alike.
