{detailed description}The Lancaster shares with its contemporary the Spitfire the distinction of having become a legend in its own lifetime. And since the war that legend has continued to grow, fostered by the inevitable nostalgia attending the vanished days of national greatness and the long gone youth of the men who flew and serviced the aircraft. Inevitably too, the legend has its element of myth. The Lancaster was, after all, a weapon of a particularly unpleasant form of warfare. All too often its role was 'nasty, brutish and short'. And yet ---- the legend remains, the stories proliferate and photographs abound.
Lancaster at War was first published in 1971 and has been reprinted eight times. It remains one of the classic books of the air war of World War II and is likely to continue in print for years. Lancaster at War – 2 is a totally new collection of Lancaster stories and photographs; it complements the earlier book, it does not duplicate it. Compiled by Mike Garbett and Brian Goulding over several years, much of its material has been, in many instances, inspired by the readers of the first Lancaster at War. The only change is that this book tends to look rather more closely at the men who flew the Lancaster and the men and women who kept it in the air. It is nonetheless a further expansion of the celebrated Lancaster legend and will delight Lanc veterans, air historians and enthusiasts alike.
