The Wellington Bomber Story by Martin W. Bowman
  

Synopsis

The Wellington Bomber Story by Martin W. Bowman

The Vickers Wellington was a British twin-engine, long range medium bomber, universally known as the `Wimpy'. The only bomber in construction throughout the Second World War, the Wellington played a pivotal role in training and combat from its conception in the 1930s, through active service in the Far Eastern, Mediterranean and German arenas of conflict, until its final use by the RAF in 1953. This book follows the fascinating story of the much-loved and innovatively designed Wellington throughout its life, including many tales from the aircraft's years with Bomber Command. Illustrated with a wide selection of images, both colour and black and white, this book is a fitting tribute to a wonderful servant of the RAF.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
