{detailed description}In 1971 Ian Allan published the first of its 'at War' books which combined personal reminiscences and unpublished photographs to produce not just a history but an evocation of what it was really like to fight in and with aircraft during World War 2. Since then there have been over 50 'at Wars' - on aviation, naval and army subjects - and the series had been widely acclaimed throughout the world.
The first 'at War' chose as its subject the most successful heavy bomber of World War 2, an aircraft that made no less than 156,000 sorties over enemy territory and dropped a total of 608,612 tons of bombs - the mighty Avro Lancaster. Lancaster at War proved an immediate best seller and has been reprinted steadily over the years. Part of this success is attributable, obviously, to the authors who scoured the world for 20 years to find the stories and photographs for this nostalgic symposium. But the major reason behind this success story is the impact and abilities of the Lancaster itself. A classic aircraft, revered by air and ground crew alike, the Lancaster was a devastating weapon of war which was used to the greatest effect during the long bombing campaign over Germany. Lancaster at War - with a foreword by Sir Arthur 'Bomber' Harris - pays tribute to the aircraft, and the men who flew and serviced the finest bomber of World War 2.
